- Service support
- Key USP
to strengthen position as official UK & Ireland power provider
Edina wanted to install a new power transformer to further support their role as the official UK and Ireland distributor for gas engine technology with electric outputs. As an on call supplier to the National Grid, with output ranging from 400kWe to 10,300kWe, Edina needed the project to work within tight timescales as well as the tight physical constraints presented by the site.
provision and installation of power transformer
We designed, manufactured, supplied and installed a 25MVA 33/11kV power transformer connecting Edina to the Grid. The project featured a full design audit and key stage quality reviews, including installation and testing.
All projects have their own challenges. For this one, the challenges were the tight timescales and management of joint working on a small site. We provided a single point of contact who was able to act responsively and flexibly, solving small issues on site as they came up. This resulted in almost no stoppage time and allowed us to complete the installation with a very fast turnaround and competitive fees.
The size of the working area meant that we could not have all of our equipment on site at the same time as our customer. We developed excellent lines of communication with Edina and set up practices that included equipment sharing and strong project management. The latter involved splitting installation into two parts to align with Edina’s own work programme.
Edina says: “We knew the work was in safe hands”
“SPC Power Solutions’ hard work and assistance in managing the procurement, supply, delivery and installation of the 25MVA 33/11kV transformer installed at Edina’s STOR site in Margate was very much appreciated and made the overall design of this challenging project easier to manage knowing this element of works was in safe hands.
Even though this was the first time Edina had used SPC Power Solutions it was a pleasure to work with a professional team, which achieved the tight deadlines the overall programme dictated.”
