dunlop oil & marine PROJECT PRODUCT PRO2000 LV SWITCHBOARD Main switchboard arranged for front access cabling with Form 4 segregation; Ingress Protection to IP31. Proteus & CEF worked with Dunlop over a 5 year period, replacing a total of 8 switchboards. The switchboards replaced existing 1960’s switchgear and had to be manufactured to accommodate the existing cabling. The switchboard shown is the replacement Main Switchboard. The project was to replace the existing panel and accommodate the existing cables. Due to the value of the board Dunlop invited tenders from other suppliers. However, Proteus Industrial was the only company who could accommodate the cabling, other suppliers had only been interested in supplying standard arrangements. In addition to the existing cabling integral PFC was built in. The switchboard consisted of 2 x 2000A ACB incomers and a 2000A Bus Coupler. A key interlock system was provided to prevent parallel running. Outgoing devices were fitted with metering. STORY 02

innovia films PROJECT CONTRACTOR NEVILLE COX PRODUCT PRO2000 LV SWITCHBOARD In March 2014, Innovia Films announced that they had signed a contract with the Bank of England for Innovia Security to supply Guardian® polymer substrate for the next generation of £5 and £10 bank notes and as a result, they are working to construct an Innovia Security plant on land adjacent to their Wigton, Cumbria BOPP facility. The plant is expected to be completed and operational by 2016 and will result in 70 to 80 new jobs. Proteus Industrial switchgear has supplied Innovia Films since 2010 in an on-going programme of replacing much of their old switchgear with the latest, and in some cases totally bespoke, control equipment. By working closely with Neville Cox, Electrical Engineering Manager - OPP and his electrical team at Innovia, a new order has just been placed by City Electrical Factors (CEF) Carlisle branch, for two purpose built Pro2000 switchboards to distribute 400v power throughout the state of the art Innovia Security facility as part of the programme. Designed and built in the Proteus factory in Telford, Neville was able to see his specification being made during a recent visit. “As a British manufacturer ourselves it is great to be able to talk and actually see our own panel being built” said Neville, “I cannot think of another company left in the UK that could offer this service.” STORY 03

proclad group PROJECT CONTRACTOR D GARDINER ELECTRICAL PRODUCT PRO2000 LV LOAD CENTRE 1600A INCOMER C/W NON TARIFF DMM CLASS 1 & 2 TNS SURGE ARRESTOR FLEXIBLE GLAND PLATE TO SUIT EXISTING INCOMING CABLES Sales Engineers visited Proclad to offer P .F.C. solutions. Whilst there, they made arrangements to meet the factory’s Facility Manager. The team explained to the Facility Manager what Proteus could offer them to improve their company’s electrical installation. The Proclad Facility Manager explained that due to expansion and new machinery, the factory was looking to upgrade its power supply with a new main switchboard, something that Proteus pride themselves on providing. Proteus then carried out a site survey and along with the electrical contractor designed a bespoke board which fitted in nicely with the existing system. For convenience, the implementation of the new system had to take place over the weekend. However, the installation was completed with a day to spare as, to quote the Electrical Contractor, boards designed by Proteus ‘fit like a glove’. STORY 04

drayton manor PROJECT THEME PARK - THOMAS LAND CONTRACTOR BIRCH ELECTRICAL AND DATA PRODUCT PRO2000 LV SWITCHBOARD Proteus Switchgear PRO2000 LV switchboard was designed to tap off from an 11kV ring to supply the vast majority of the Thomas Land’s electrical needs. The timescale for the project was tight from the onset and as quoted by the contractor only Proteus Switchgear offered to meet the challenge. The goods were specified, quoted, designed and supplied within 8 weeks. Keeping the progress of the project on schedule and supporting the contractor along the way with respect to technical support and advice were key to customer satisfaction. Proteus Switchgear were also noted for their excellent cooperation and team work when it came to accommodating a significant mid-project modification to the switchboard involving the upgrading of an outgoing switch fuse from 100A to 250A. With the assistance of Proteus staff the work involved in changeover was completed in less than 1 hour. The contractor claims the high profile of the installation and overall successful completion and handover of the project has also increased the profile of his company and led to further job opportunities for his team with work on this scale.

center parcs PROJECT CONTRACTOR CENTER PARCS M&E PRODUCT ABX BOARD The ABX board is the smallest three phase Industrial board on the market today, and was created from an enquiry that the Nottingham branch had from one of their largest customers – Center Parcs.

The ABX board is available with a solid metal enclosure that is supplied with a side hinged opaque steel construction door, it comes standard with a three phase busbar and a 100A 4P isolator pre-fitted, removable top gland plates and rear knockouts for easier installation, the ABX comes in a range of outgoing ways from 2 - 8 (horizontally).
