1600A GDA – Lyons Park, Coventry

A large bakery was looking at solutions to provide a more efficient way of distributing power around their new factory. Comparing the installation between cable and trunking vs busbar showed there were large savings to be had on completing the installation with busbar trunking rather than traditional methods. A lighting busbar system was also discussed to provide additional cost savings.

Products supplied included 2 x 1600A GDA Busbar systems totalling 220m feeding local distribution boards and various machinery, 36m 630A busbar was supplied which was powered from one of the 1600A busbars and tap offs ranged from 32A – 630A across the project. We also supplied 200m of our GLS 25A Lighting busbar to supply the lighting around the factory.

As is often the case, as well as price and quality, lead time is a huge consideration on projecst of this type. An order was placed at the end of July so with the August shutdown in Italy, the most likely scenario was a delivery towards the end of Ocrober taking in to account the components would arrive at our factory early September after reopening. Having discussed this with the end client it was apparent this was going to cause problems, but as alwats we are here to work with all parties to try and find a common solution. As a result, we were able to source the raw materials for the end of August with the factory prioritising this prestigious project and shipping the goods on 2nd September in order to help our client meet their deadlines. All lighting busbar was supplied from UK stock.
