Case Study - GA Petfoods – New Ingredients Kitchen – 2017
New 6300A LV Switchboard and Associated Sub-Distribution Switchboards & MCC’s for Major Expansion to Existing Petfood Manufacture in Lancashire - Total Project Value – £200,000
The fully type-tested LV Switchboard was designed & manufactured in-house using our Starline Type Tested Low Voltage switchgear product. A bespoke design was developed with the client to allow for Top-Entry cabling with the Main Busbars being installed at the bottom of the switchboard with the complete panel being installed onto a raised structural steel platform. Our own in-house installation team carried out the site delivery, off-loading, positioning, installation and testing of the completed panel. The panel also incorporated intelligent Power Monitoring for both incoming & outgoing circuits with a Networked Connection to their Building Management System to monitor and record power usage across each area of the factory.
Following the successful installation of the new Main LV Switchboard which was our first project for this client we have continued to supply further LV Switchboards and Motor Control Centres for the fit-out of the new Ingredients Kitchen. This also included designing & manufacturing an extension cubicle which was installed onto an existing LV Switchboard which had been manufactured by a third party OEM who could no longer support their product.
