DISTRIBUTION BOARD FOR SAFRIPOL


This is the main distribution board for the Safripol plant that is fed by 6 transformers and the board itself then feeds a total of 24 MCC’s. The original distribution board showed signs of serious aging and the changeover methodology was a complex and dangerous activity.

Hamar Controls was awarded the tender for a new double busbar board. The new, more technologically advance board would replace the existing board. The new board is also fully automated and interlocked to prevent complex changeover procedures.
