Another feeder pillar on its way

TK Box.jpg

 

During the current UK lockdown due to CV19 one of our customers are still looking forward. One of Europe's largest leisure park operators has taken the the chance of the current (and past) lockdowns to upgrade the existing infrastructure on site. These units are used to distribute power to lodges from a centralised substation. Made from GRP they need little in the way of maintenance, all distribution is contained within along with a heater and lighting for those long dark nights that we get in the UK.

Re: Another feeder pillar on its way

Hi Shawn,

 

The pillar contains Acti9 DB and INV isolator. At present metering with this particular customer is a bit of a desert... However, we have talked to them regarding metering. It fits in very well with their business model. Whenever we upgrade their transformer substations the LV equipment is always fitted with Smart NSX/NS MCCB's with RS485/TCP/IP connection ready for when e have a sit down and discussion as to which offer they are going to move forward with (i.e. PME or one of the new digital services platforms.). 

 

We don't always get then metering/monitoring at the start of the project. Sometimes we simply get the equipment with devices, then later on the metering question is asked. Yes, it is cheaper to install at the factory, but that is life i guess. However, with the new range of smart metering there is always a solution that fits the application.

Re: Another feeder pillar on its way

Thanks for sharing @Peter_Hall !!👍

 

Can you tell use what kind of products (breakers/meters/..) are enclosed?

 

Also, I'd like to know if your customer is using software and connected electrical systems to manage its energy consumption and improve its efficiency?

 

Thanks

Shawn M.
