Prime Power Emergency Response For Global Animal Feed Manufacturer


The Problem

When a global animal feed manufacturer was suffering downtime due to loss of
electricity supply and their critical standby generator failed, Pleavin Power were called upon to
support them. From initial mobilisation to having resource on site took 38 minutes. Once an engineer
made an assessment of the situation the decision was made to deploy emergency generation to get
the clients plant online. With power restored we identified some of the major issues the on-site
generator had and found multiple cracks and failed gaskets in the aged radiator cooling pack.

The Solution

With the site supported with temporary generation, our in-house ERV with a Fassi
660 was immediately deployed and our engineering team devised a strategic removal plan to
facilitate the radiator repair. The generator enclosure sound attenuation was removed to provide the
team with a safe means of access and egress for the 1,200KG cooling pack. We supplied a two ton
Linde forklift truck, jack’s, lifting tackle, blocks, skates and lifting plan therefore providing the full
turn-key solution. With the radiator removed it was overhauled including a new core, header and
base tank gaskets, pressure test and two year warranty. The removal process was reversed and
successful installation of the repaired radiator took place, the team rebuilt and commissioned the
critical power system for the client hassle free. With this done the emergency power units
were decommissioned and safely removed from site, now protected by one of our industry leading
SLA Agreements.
