Guernsey Electricity Keeps Project Schedule On Track

The Project

When Guernsey Electricity turned to BRUSH Switchgear for a solution to their need to test recently manufactured switchgear whilst being locked down due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the adoption of Virtual Factory Acceptance Testing enabled a new Eclipse Switchboard to be comprehensively witness tested without the need for our customers to visit to the factory.

BRUSH Switchgear 

Guernsey Electricity selected BRUSH Switchgear to supply 11kV indoor switchgear under a recently awarded Long-Term Framework Agreement.

As this was the first switchboard to have been manufactured under the agreement, it was imperative that the customer had the opportunity to inspect the switchboards and carry out comprehensive testing prior to the equipment leaving the factory.

Using Microsoft Teams, multiple cameras and a “can do” attitude from both the customer and our Test Department, the switchboard underwent a comprehensive testing process and the first Eclipse units are now being delivered for installation, helping to secure reliable power supply for Guernsey in years to come.
