Our client was out-growing their site power capability and wanted to expand by putting in new machines and processes. The DNO (network operator) were called in and a new larger supply was quoted at £180,000.00.
Our client was looking to add additional workshops containing CNC and Machining Processes. The client already had a 1.6m VA supply. The site was operating at 0.57 power factor. The existing switchgear was 30 years old and failing, the main switch regularly tripping due to its failing state/age.
Johnson & Phillips serveyed the site’s existing system and proposed the following upgrade: new main switchboard, new power factor correction and additional transformer tails. All equipment is manufactured and assembled by Johnson & Phillips.
- Capacity improvement of 40%.
- Energy Reduction of 10%.
- Reliability of new Switchgear Total project cost of £85,000.00.
- Total Implementation savings of £95,000.00.
