As part of the planned upgrade work at Belfast City Council’s – Duncrue Complex to enhance the emergency power resilience of the sites computer suite, PM POWER was awarded the contract to de-commission and remove the existing generator and replace it with a new generating set and digital control system.
The supplied generator was a CUMMINS C150D5, giving a standby rating of 150kVA, with the upgrade also including the design, installation and commissioning of a new Deep Sea Electronics (DSE) – Automatic Mains Failure (AMF) Controller.
The new control system automatically transfers the site load from mains to generator during a mains failure, as well as re-instating the mains supply once it returns and is stable.
