TOTAL POWER SUPPLIED
This was a fantastic project to be involved with. Despite being a technically and logistically challenging installation, it really showcases our ability to work with major blue-chip clients.
Designed by Sir Robert McAlpine, the American Express European Headquarters are designed to reflect the character of its location.
To ensure that American Express were never left without standby power, our team completed the specially phased upgrading of generator control panels over a 5-week period – delivering the assurance and guarantees required by the customer.
Any failure in power during that time would have severely disrupted Amex’s operations, potentially affecting millions of customers across Europe – hence the need for meticulous planning to deliver the workload without defect.
The Burtonwood Group completed control panel upgrade work to 5 x 800KV generators, including specialist enhancement work to enable them to synchronise together in less than 1 minute.
