In an electric power system, switchgear is the arrangement of electrical disconnect switches, electrical fuses or power circuit breakers used to control, protect and isolate connected electrical equipment. High voltage (HV), Medium voltage (MV), low voltage switchgear (LV) and transformer services is therefore an essential, yet potentially hazardous, element in the provision of power to your business and involves extensive levels of knowledge and expertise.
Whether you require new switchgear equipment, switchgear maintenance, inspection and testing of existing installations or technical advice, Burtonwood Generator & Switchgear Services has the experience and professionalism to meet your needs.
Included in our range of switchgear services is our ground-breaking Non-Intrusive Maintenance Procedure (NIMP), an industry leading innovation, in partnership with EA Technology, through which we are able to conduct condition based switchgear maintenance without switching systems off - providing vital cost and operational savings, whilst minimising disruption.
This, coupled with our established procurement and installation practices covering HV and LV switchgear equipment from all major manufacturers including Reyrolle, Hawker Siddeley, Lucy & Co Ltd, Merlin Gerin and Holec HH, to name but a few, ensures our customers could not be in better hands.
