- Increased Expectations- 'Yes we can!'
Recent research has confirmed increased expectations of the quality of electricity distribution to consumers - both commercial and domestic. They are the expectations of government, regulatory authorities and all those reliant on power.
In the UK, and in many other countries across the world, the principle is that electricity should be reliably supplied at all times and to all locations.
Appropriate infrastructure of a high quality needs to be in place, its ongoing operation constantly monitored, and maintenance and refurbishment undertaken on a structured and comprehensive basis.
Where truly unforeseeable situations result in supply interruptions, robust contingency plans should be activated rapidly to restore normal operation.
Alongside expectations of service are expectations of cost - including cost-effective provision of new circuits, and maintenance of those already in place.
Commoditisation of cable and most widely-used accessories help to reduce costs, but there remain many circumstances where this approach cannot be fully utilised.
To assist network operators in meeting these expectations in the UK and overseas, ecs offers a unique, fully-integrated supply and install service at 33kV to 400kV, from project concept to final testing and handover, with subsequent maintenance and repairs. The product range covers both XLPE and fluid-filled systems, on and off-shore.
The individual elements of the service can be selected to suit each situation. They include circuit design and product specification, project planning and management, civil works and site services, supply of cable, joints and associated items, cable pulling and cleating, jointing and testing. Highly experienced and fully accredited ecs personnel undertake the work, using free-issued items where required.
Case studies showing a variety of projects undertaken can be seen by clicking here. They include fault location and repairs in very demanding circumstances.
Expectations of fully-efficient network operations are increasing all the time, and that situation seems set to continue. ecs has developed its comprehensive service to assist distribution managers in meeting those expectations rapidly, expertly, and cost-effectively.
