Field Power and Lighting for the UK Military

When the UK Military deploys in the field, there is a significant requirement for power and lighting equipment. Systems need to be quick to install, scalable, safe and easy to use, ruggedly constructed, provide power for many different types of user and be re-usable with minimal maintenance.

Flori-67/3P 110 Volt Site Lighting

Since its launch at the start of 2012, Flori-67/3P, Blakley Electrics’ unique plug-in 110V lighting system, has been widely adopted by the UK Construction and Civil Engineering sectors. In the 3 years since introduction, over 265km of lighting strings and associated fittings have been installed, which is equivalent to lighting the entire length of the M25 1½ times!

Tube Train Maintenance Depots

The London Underground Tube network is the oldest mass transit system in the world and carries in excess of 1.25 billion passengers per annum. The system is split into eleven lines and runs for 7 days a week with only a short period each night for track, station and train maintenance. To service and maintain the trains, each line has its own maintenance depot (or depots) where repairs, cleaning and routine maintenance all take place over night.

High Current Switchboards

To complement our range of heavy duty MCB and fuse boards, Blakley Electrics also produces higher current distribution assemblies incorporating outgoing MCCBs or switch fuses.  Although these assemblies are made to order, many basic designs are established, which helps to reduce manufacturing lead times and lessens the burden of design costs.

Reefer Gantry Supply Assembly

Reefers (refrigerated containers) are used to transport perishable goods around the world. When they are in transit by road or ship, power for the integral refrigeration unit is provided by the vehicle or vessel. However, once in port awaiting onward shipment, an external supply has to be provided to power the Reefer.

400A Lift Supply Panel for London Underground with Castell Key Interlocked Changeover Arrangement

As part of the updating of ten Central London Underground Stations, the Blakley project team have been involved in developing a composite Lift Supply Panel, which is designed to be located in existing switch rooms. In additon to meeting a demanding electrical specification and exacting LUL material requirements, the panels have also been designed to be “split” into two sections, as the restricted access makes it impossible for a fully assembled panel to be manoeuvred into position on site.

Trailer Mounted 400A Distribution Assembly for Electrical Utility

When a domestic consumer or a business loses its electricity supply, whether it is due to flooding, vandalism or equipment failure, the loss of power for a prolonged period can have far reaching consequences for all concerned. As part of its emergency response contingency planning, a leading electrical utility has recently invested in trailer mounted distribution equipment to provide consumers with much needed power, quickly, safely and efficiently.

Isolated Supplies with Insulation Monitoring to Supply Vessels

When certain military and mercantile vessels are moored at pontoons or quaysides, an earth free IT supply is provided to power the vessel’s electrical system, enabling the on board generator to be shut down. An insulation monitor (IMD) is required to ensure the integrity of the IT shore supply.

Assemblies for Nuclear Decommissioning

Decommissioning a nuclear power facility is a very complex and lengthy process. In recent years various decommissioning strategies have been developed, which include immediate dismantling, deferred dismantling (which occurs after radioactivity has been allowed to decay under controlled conditions) and entombment, where radioactive contaminants are encased on site in structurally sound material such as concrete. Whichever strategy is adopted, time scales are generally measured in decades and many critical stages are involved.

Assemblies for the Maintenance of offshore Wind Turbines

When a major offshore wind farm operator decided to upgrade the maintenance facilities on an array of 60 turbines installed off the English / Scottish border, they approached the Blakley Electrics Project Team to discuss possible options.

Distribution Assemblies for Tunnelling

On large tunnel projects, Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) have changed tunnelling from a quasi mining activity in to a mobile production line. Once a TBM is up and running (which is no mean feat), it burrows away, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, edging forward metre by metre.
