We supplied and installed a new distribution board to a client in Alconbury
Our team investigated constant tripping of electrics on-site in Alconbury. Upon carrying out our investigations, we identified that the site had a common 30mA RCD in mains distribution board which did not comply and was causing intermittent power outage/nuisance tripping when an increase of current passed through the site, i.e. when 3 or 4 pumps were running simultaneously.
We were asked to provide a solution which would resolve the issue for our client and prevent unnecessary disruptions to site.
So this meant that we supplied and installed a compliant distribution board complete with individual 30mA RCD protection and double pole isolation to tank dispensers, control systems and local dispenser lighting. This has rectified the issue and the client is happy to now be running back at full capacity.
