OUR PROJECT PROCESS
Our in-house project management department works with you to identify, install and test the best solution for you.
When designing a power generation solution, it is vital to consider the specifications and requirements of the generator to make sure it will be able to meet your needs now and in the future. The generator’s specifications will include information such as the maximum power output, fuel type, and noise level. The obvious requirement of any generator is to be able to power your equipment or premises reliably, and cope with the day-to-day power demand as well as predicted peak volumes. Noise level parameters are also an important consideration, especially if you will be using the generator in an area where noise pollution is a concern. By taking all of these factors into account, you can be sure to commission a generator that meets your needs and expectations.
Our in-house project management department works with you to identify, install and test the best solution for you.
Our in-house design department works with you to identify, install and test the best solution for you. They will consider all possible elements of your power requirements – including civil work, transformers, control and switch gear, AMF and synchronous controls, generator and UPS, acoustic and complete fuel solutions.
Our design work includes all drawings, specifications and other documentation. Our professional team will always make sure that everything we recommend satisfies your objectives; complies with all relevant standards, specifications and regulations; and is economical to procure, deliver, install, and maintain. We use AUTOCAD to provide drawings, method statements and risk assessments for your approval.
In the most cost-effective way, we will install and fully project manage your new power solution to the exacting controls and standards required using our accredited ISO system. All designs are reviewed and signed off according to our ISO9001 procedures and all component suppliers and sub-contractors have to pass our rigorous ISO 9001\14001 assessment.
Once external electrical items are installed and site equipment is tested and approved, we will undertake generator commissioning and do a final handover on site. This includes a full mains failure and black-start test to make sure everything meets your needs.
Our specialist team of regionally based Service Sales Engineers will design the generator maintenance agreement that suits the specific needs of your business, offering reliability, efficiency and value for money. We’re proud to be the UK’s largest distributor of Kohler-SDMO generators. Find out more about why you should buy a generator maintenance contract.
When selecting the right diesel generator for your business, facility or operation, the application is one key factor which will greatly influence your choice. Whether you’re looking to back-up a facility with a standby power solution or want to power a facility in a hard-to-reach location which has no access to mains, WB Power can help
A power solution can be quite expensive and must be constructed to adequately serve the needs of the business. It must also be chosen depending on the location in which it will be used. Bringing in dependable advisors with experience installing and planning for generators is the first crucial choice that can be made before moving forward with generator evaluation. The MEP engineer, structural engineer, architect, general contractor, and landlord/leasing representatives must be involved in this project from the beginning in order to guide the design planning phase, provide best practise recommendations, and aid in the collection of trustworthy quotes based on the intended project scope.
Once the WBPS design team has been assembled, we will assess the proposed structure and how its features will affect the design, including any costs associated with the use of a generator for backup power. How the generator works with the building’s functionality will depend on factors. For example, the physical size of the building: single story, high rise, the geographical location, dimensions, and the engineering systems that must be supported to suit business objectives.
To appropriately size a generator, it is necessary to first assess the HVAC system, lighting, electrical distribution, pumps, and other aspects of the structure. The new generator should be placed either within in a plant room or outside of the structure in an appropriate enclosure, depending on the type of building.
Following the evaluation of the building and its surrounding facilities, the design team will then conduct a thorough sizing exercise to determine the generator size needed to suit the needs of the business, both in terms of dimensions and load capability, and kVA rating. The MEP engineering team, along with a building representative and building engineers, should analyse the current MEP systems to determine which base-building systems, in addition to the business-specific engineering systems, will need a generator backup. In determining the final generator size to satisfy the end user’s requirements for either prime, continuous or standby power, it may be necessary to take into account factors such as rooftop units for the building’s HVAC systems, water heaters, lighting, networking equipment, and uninterruptible power systems (UPS).
Picking the fuel source for the backup generator is a crucial stage in the generator selection process. Geographical location, readily available fuel sources, cost, and expected generator size will all have an impact on this choice. Natural gas is typically more cost-effective for smaller generators, whereas diesel is frequently better suited for bigger generator systems. Natural gas can be fed to your generator through utility gas pipelines, making it a cheaper, more effective, and frequently accessible fossil fuel in and around big cities.
We are proud to be the Europe’s number one Kohler distributor, and offer a vast selection of high-performance Kohler generators, ranging from around 10kVA, all the way through to 4500kVA. These engines offer outstanding power in a clean, modular design and are ideal for a wide variety of applications and sectors.FIND OUT MORE
