As part of the clients on-site facilities upgrade strategy and to increase business continuity, they decided to upgrade the diesel generator that supplies emergency power to the store, during a mains failure.
This is the client’s second site that PM POWER was selected to supply and install the new generator.
As well as supplying the generator, PM POWER were responsible for integrating the new generator into the existing infrastructure, upgrading the fuel supply pipework, power cable connection and exhaust flue.
A new automatic Synchronising Control System was also installed, to facilitate the seamless transfer from the generator back to the mains power supply, following a mains failure. This also enables on-load testing of the generator without impacting the operation of the store.
The selected diesel generator was manufacturer by the global market leader CUMMINS and offers a standby rating 450kVA.
As a channel partner in the UK and Ireland for CUMMINS, PM POWER buys all units directly from them the OEM, with full direct factory support.
This work was designed, coordinated, and carried out in-house by PM POWER’S dedicated installation team. The installation was completed with minimal disruption to the client, with the commissioning carried out during out of hours, when the store was closed.
