Challenge: To deliver a 2 x 2.2MVA load test for a data centre to ensure business continuity and resilience in the event of a load increase.
Solution: P & I provided a full turnkey solution covering the load bank, cables, temporary generator set to power the load bank and engineers to set up and perform the test. P & I provided a risk assessment covering logistics, site safety and security. The advanced Sigma software enabled detailed data logging of the results which were provided to the customer as proof of the performance of their equipment.
Result: P & I provided the customer with a complete solution that safely tested the client’s critical power system whilst maintaining full operation of the data centre. The data captured confirmed to the customer that their critical power system was still performing to expected standards.
“With P & I, we felt confident during the whole process that our critical supply would be maintained whilst being tested. Having pushed the load to the limit, we feel secure that our business continuity needs will be met in the event of an increase in load.” – Data Centre Manager
NHS Hospital – Generator Upgrade
Challenge: To upgrade the hospital’s existing 1000 kVAgenerator due to an increase in demand and to allow for future increases.
Solution: To replace the original 1000 kVA generator with a 1650 kVA (KD1650 with acoustic equipment). P & I’s projects team took care of every aspect of the project from initial site visit, creating a detailed programme of works, organising a crane to remove the old generator and set the new one in place, factory and site acceptance tests and the installation and commissioning of the equipment. With continuous power a must for NHS sites, P & I also supplied hire sets to ensure the hospital was protected during the installation and commission phase of the project.
Result: P & I provided the customer with a full end-to-end service from initial planning, project management, installation and commissioning, all whilst allowing the hospital to continue to operate. P & I’s solution has provided the customer with equipment that will not only fulfil their current demand but will also allow for further increases in demand.
Residential & Commercial Estate – UPS Installation
Challenge: To ensure that the Estate’s new underground car park had sufficient back-up power for their ventilation system, in the event of a power outage.
Solution: Following an initial consultation with the customer to discuss their requirements, P & I undertook a site survey of the underground car park. Having taken into account the customers’ load requirements and the size of the space available for the equipment, P & I recommended a 100 kVA UPS system to support the underground car park’s extractor fans. The installation and commissioning of the UPS was completed with minimal disruption to the customer.
Result: P & I provided the customer with a fully functioning back-up system to ensure that, in the event of a power outage, they can guarantee that their ventilation system is still operational as per the requirement of the Building Regulations. To ensure reliable operation throughout the equipment’s lifecycle, P & I provide the ongoing service and maintenance for the UPS.
