Satellite Tracking Station Temporary Generators

Satellite earth station

GRNZ was approached for supply of temporary Diesel Generators for a major 10 month electrical upgrade at New Zealand's largest purpose-built, tier 1 Satellite Earth Station. The supply consisted of two matched, synchronized, low interference Generators with extended run capability, connected to a single common electrical bus in an N+1 configuration. The customer scope also required construction and integration of various alarm outputs to match the existing 1970's management system feeding back to the customers network operations centre.

Keeping the heat on

GRNZ recently supplied 11 weeks of temporary power for a scheduled mains cable upgrade. Compounding the complexity were access, the marsh like conditions and the requirement for a super silent, fully automated load supplimenting system. GRNZ supplied a custom one touch, all weather solution with full remote visibility and control, which not only complied with, but exceeded the Auckland Council's residential noise requirements.

Standby only
