Proteus Industrial Switchgear of Telford were asked to serve up something special for AB Produce of Measham, Leicestershire for their main 2500A L.V. switchboard and sub MCCB panel boards.
Having competitively tendered for this project, Proteus Industrial worked closely with Electrical Design Consultant Andrew Snipe of AS Engineering – Energy Services, based in North Oxfordshire over a six month period assisting with the design of the projects electrical distribution boards and panels. The contract was subsequently awarded to supply a 2500A LV main Incomer / Generator Switchboard and Panel Boards for sub distribution fully compliant to BSEN 61439 – 1 and 2.
AB Produce have a complex recycling and generation installation, so an upgraded switchboard was required which could be supplied from a combination of mains power grid, Biogas CHP, Solar PV and a 2000A diesel generator set. The switchboard was required to operate in two modes: normal, where the power mains and generator supplies operate as a conventional interlocked changeover system and export, where the CHP, solar, bio digestion and generator can supply the site and export to the mains power grid system if required.
