United Springs - Low Voltage Maintenance
In March 2014, our Construction and Maintenance engineers visited United Springs to carry out some inspection work on their low voltage equipment. We provided a quote for the work needed, but also notified United Springs that they would need to carry out further maintenance work on their high voltage equipment. Due to our recommendations, we were able to carry out maintenance on both sets of equipment on the same day, which reduced disruption to day-to-day production at United Springs, keeping costs to a minimum.
“The work was well co-ordinated and professionally delivered and all the tasks were completed in line with the action plan. I was kept informed of progress at every stage of the work which was reassuring to me. In all my dealings with Electricity North West, I have always found them to be sympathetic and responsive to our demands.” (Stuart Ratcliffe, Engineering Manager, United Springs)
Salford Royal Hospital - Fault Repair
In December 2013, a major fault occurred on the High Voltage system at Salford Royal NHS Foundation. Our 24 hour response teams visited the site within an hour to assess the cable damage and we installed specialist fault finding equipment to locate the fault. We returned a day later to excavate the cable and repair it, to ensure that normal supply was restored as quickly as possible.
“Due to the time constraints of the Christmas holiday period the engineers made arrangements to get the repairs carried out to make sure the Trust was not at risk for any long period of time over the Christmas and New Year break. All this was made possible due to Electricity North West engineer’s diligence and commitment to giving the best service possible for the customer.
May I take this opportunity to pass on my personal thanks to all the engineers for the attitude and approach they showed towards the issues that were affecting this site.” (Bill Lundy, Estates Manager, Salford Royal NHS Foundation)
GJ Distillers - Super low loss transformer
In 2012, we identified that there was a problem with one of two electricity transformers at GJ Distillers. As a result, we carried out a load survey, to understand the amount of electricity flowing through the company’s private network. We recommended introducing a new Super Low Loss Transformer, which would not only fix the problem, but also result in considerable energy savings for the company. We carried out the installation without any interruption to normal supply and GJ Distillers have since received much lower energy bills.
“We - at GJ Distillers - undertook an analysis of the energy accounts six months either side of the new installation and it was confirmed that a 13.3% saving was being achieved. The work was carried out very professionally and we want to acknowledge the great service provided.” (Nigel Sach, Technical Manager, GJ Distillers)
