This included a high degree of engineering capability to meet project requirements and site spatial restrictions.
Scope of works
Main switchboards, main distribution boards, generating power change-over switchboards & general distribution boards.
Project requirements included comprehensive provisions for continuity of supply to all critical and essential services. spatial challenges
Extensive monitoring of the use of energy, remote ‘bms’ control of ‘lighting’ and ‘loadshedding’ throughout the installation facilitated prioritizing of energy requirements in case of ‘mains failure’ and ‘back-up’ supply and status monitoring.
Technologies Liberal use of ‘built-in’ and complimentary energy measurement devices throughout switchboards to provide client with energy data & control of the whole building as required.
