Thames Barrier Supplementary Power Systems

09 November 2010

Anord Controls Systems Ltd has just completed the manufacturing and delivery to site of a Low Voltage Diesel Rotary Uninterruptable Power Supply (DRUPS) Distribution switchboard to the Thames Barrier site.

The design of this high integrity switchboard was technically challenging as it included five different busbar systems. Once installed, this switchboard will facilate the installation of a reserve power supply system which will provide supplementary power to enable critical systems, including the operation of the barriers flood defence systems, to be maintained in the event of a temporary failure of the mains power supply.
