Avoid Downtime with Emergency Backup Power Systems
No company can afford to have their power turned off, especially those that run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It’s essential for businesses to implement backup power solutions that make all the difference in the case of an emergency. We offer solutions that will keep your business operational even when there is no power from the grid, with fully tested, reliable commercial backup power systems.
With mining accounting for about 28% of Western Australia’s production levels, productivity is critical. The economy and thousands of employees depend on the industry. But with many mines situated in remote areas and some working off the grid, many rely on diesel generators for their remote power systems. Similarly, those that are connected to the grid also need the support of generators. That’s where we come in, supplying a wide range of generators suitable for various industrial uses.
We will carry out a complete analysis of your system to ensure the correct power lines, cabling and generator sizing and specifications are in place. In addition, we have a variety of power transformers available to suit all your requirements. This includes:
• Containerised dry-type units
• Earthing transformers
• Metering transformers
If you’re looking for a specific power supply transformer, talk to us. If we don’t have it in stock, we’ll source it for you.
Short Circuit Analysis
Our engineers will complete a comprehensive short circuit analysis for your business, ensuring that your operations continue safely, efficiently and effectively. We can identify problem areas within your electrical system, advise you accordingly and implement appropriate actions. This helps eliminate any risks associated with short circuit currents and helps avoid unnecessary downtime.
Load Flow Studies
When dealing with power engineering, a load flow analysis is required. This is a numerical analysis of the flow of electric power in an interconnected system and vital for any future expansion of existing power systems. Our engineers will complete the analysis and optimise your efficiency with specialist power system design.
Motor Starting Studies
When operating a large motor, there are factors that affect performance and can affect your energy flow. These can result in the tripping of your entire electrical system, or unwanted dimming of the lights – both signs that your power system isn’t operating as efficiently as it should.
By performing motor starting studies, we ensure you have the correct information on the best starting method, the right motor design, and the optimal system design to ensure the impact of starting the motor is kept to an absolute minimum.
Protective Device Co-ordination
By ensuring you have an effective power system protection in place, you can protect your system from malfunction by isolating the faulty parts from the rest of your electrical network.
We can implement a scheme whereby faulty items will not affect the rest of your electric system so that you don’t need to shut down your entire system every time there is a fault. This ensures that other electrical work can be carried out with minimal impact on the rest of the electrical power system.
Power Factor Correction
Minimise the amount of ‘wasted’ electricity produced by installing one of our power factor correction units. We’ll help you target inefficiencies within your electrical power system so you get the maximum usable output every time.
Ground Grid Design to IEEE and Australian Standards
The safe operation of an electrical substation is critical to the efficiency of your power system. Safety relies on a ground design that is properly installed and will ensure reliable performance of the substation for its entire service life. Our engineers have designed and installed many of these systems successfully. Rest assured that you will be provided with a ground grid design that meets your unique requirements and that’s fully compliant with all IEEE and Network Standards.
High Voltage Power Distribution
Make sure your customers get the right power when they need it with our high voltage power distribution systems, all customisable to meet your company’s unique needs. No matter how big the client or how large their energy demands, we will design a system to ensure the right voltage of power is distributed to the right customer.
Substation Design and Commissioning
Substations ensure that electricity from the power plant is transformed into the correct voltage for use by the consumer. Backed by years of experience and a team of highly-qualified engineers, we can create a substation design specific to your requirements. We’ll also take care of the substation commissioning to ensure you comply with all electrical commissioning requirements as set out by law.
Take advantage of our experience in SCADA to ensure your grid connection substations remain fully operational at all times.
