A large banking facility recently commissioned Applied Power Engineering to supply them with a controls solution. The project brief was to replace an obsolete original Dale 8000 series multiple engine control system which provided emergency standby power to the facility. This system compromising of five Cummins diesel generators complete with Baber Coleman synchronising and load share equipment.
The client required removal of controls and associated synchronising equipment, including electronic governors in a limited intrusive period for implementation as the main criteria. Avoiding disruption to the banks day to day activities was critical on this project and our team worked collaboratively with the customer to deliver this aspect of the brief.
The existing controls were replaced with ComAp InteliGen modules with integral load sharing and GAC electronic governing equipment fitted to each engine.
The complete new control system has been built, installed and cabled as a none-intrusive activity, with transfer to the new system taking place in a single 24 hour window, returning the system back to service.
