A large FM company contacted Pleavin Power to provide long-term resilience due to the expansion of the site, meaning the onsite generator was no longer capable of supporting the site load.
Due to the increased capacity requirement, the existing cabling was not suitable, so Pleavin Power installed a 1KM long containment system providing support for 4 sets of trefoiled cables to enable the site’s operations to continue safely.
The three generators were demonstrated to the client in synchronisation during a simulated mains failure.
The site was monitored remotely 24/7 from the Pleavin Powers network operations centre and is covered by a bespoke servicing and fuel management service.
The site was subject to a flooding incident in which the primary intake was not impacted and so the ATS system did not call for backup generation; the majority of the site’s distribution was located in the flooded secondary intake.
Pleavin Power mobilised significant resources to bring the site back online by reconfiguring the existing temporary power installation to directly support the site at a distribution board level and supporting the site’s staged re-energisation process alongside the incumbent FM to ensure business as usual was returned in the shortest possible time with as little an impact on the site’s operations as possible.
After repairs and modifications were completed to the secondary intake room, Pleavin Power returned to the site to return the cabling and distribution systems to their original configuration in order to support the site in a backup capacity.
