20kVA Diesel Generator upgrade for Hull Shopping Centre

Ensuring shopping without any disruptions.

One thing’s for certain, no shopping centre wants to be without power supply. Imagine the scenario: no power means no lights are on, no tills work, no air conditioning (or heating) and… less customers than usual (if any). No lighting in store could present a real health and safety issues for both staff and customers, so power supply is absolutely critical so that retailers are able to keep operating.

A busy shopping complex in Hull was undergoing a a renovation project and required a generator upgrade to ensure business continuity for the retailers. They trusted in our generator sets to provide back up power supply in the event of a mains failure, with the installation of 1 x 20kVA Prime rated diesel generator with a fully Automatic Transfer Switch. A temporary generator supply was also provided whilst engineers installed a new distribution system and cabling.

Before the installation took place at the site, our Project Manager organised Risk Assessment and Method Statements (RAMS) through the centre’s electrical contractor Fairburns. These were issued for all the required electrical work and safe removal of a small amount of asbestos on the control panel.

Commissioning of the generator took place during normal working hours, meaning no downtime for the businesses in the shopping centre and a Warranty plus NICEIC Electrical installation certificate was issued on completion.

The client ordered a Gold Service Maintenance Contract for future servicing, which is vital as proactive servicing and maintenance is the best way to keep your generator in good working order – so it’s always there for you when you need it most. Also using genuine filters and the correct fluids is critical to ensuring your generator is kept to its optimum levels of performance.
