Containerised AVR/VO - Plug and Play Solutions

Many businesses that would like to take advantage of installing an AVR or large Voltage Optimiser solution are often prevented from doing by the basic lack of plant room space.

Electrical plant rooms are often quite restricted for space and the original building designers never considered the need to add a large piece of equipment that could be 3m long by 2m high and around 1m deep, so plant rooms rarely have capacity for expansion.

However, most large businesses will likely have some spare space outside, where additional electrical plant can be located, but the questions of security, safety and water ingress tend to end up on the "too difficult to do pile".

Traditionally, customers have considered GRP housings, but temperature control is a challenge and when you get to larger scale projects, GRP doesn't always cut it.

At Watford Control, we have been supplying containerised AVR/VO solutions for many years, and are a major supplier to the SSEN electrical infrastructure upgrades that are taking place throughout the Scottish Highlands.

Typically, we supply either a 20ft or 40ft solution (depending on the power of the AVR), which are modified to provide personnel doors, heating, lighting and extraction.

The units are insulated and fire boarded throughout, with new flooring laid over the standard teak base - all finished off in a C5 paint job that is designed to withstand the rigours of the Highlands 'weather for many, many years.

As part of the design, we provide external glanding chambers and alarm connection panels, to enable our customers to run their power supply and BMS systems direct into the AVR. As all the AVR installation and cabling work is carried out at our Corby factory, there is no impact on the customer's operations to consider and quality control is rigorously maintained on our site.

All this reduces installation time an absolute minimum and keeps disruption to virtually zero - a true Plug and Play solution!
