CASE STUDY: Electrical connection for a new manufacturing premise

A move to a new premise meant C & H Howe - component suppliers to the automotive industry – needed a 1MVA electrical connection.


Using a HV point of connection onto the local 11kV network, the Rock Team installed a transformer substation with a Ring Main Unit and Air Circuit Breaker; all housed in a GRP enclosure.

Up against the tight timescale of the manufacturing relocation, the Rock Team managed to complete the substation build to schedule whilst maintaining top quality standards.


Operations director Reece James explains “Due to excellent coordination of all parties, supplies were reinstated ahead of schedule.”

* As a manufacturing specialist with no experience of electrical connections, we provided a clear quotation, drawing and explanation to help the client through each step of the process.

* Created a robust schedule and stuck to it to ensure on-time delivery.
