The reconfigurable building

End User: Major International Financial Institution

Location: City of London

Building on an innovative design from the client's consultants, new LV Distribution and UPS's were installed in this large London site with minimal downtime. Several parts of the remaining infrastructure posed unusual challenges in controlling the LV power. A Triple redundant PLC control system (sometimes referred to as Triplex) was installed as part of the project. This control system routed the power around pinch points in the building allowing the supply to be maintained whatever the failure scenario.

The control system is installed on multiple floors and configured in such a way as to provide no single points of failure. The generators, LV distribution and load shedding are all controlled from the new system. Operator control touch screens are provided at multiple locations in the building to allow the FM team total visibility of the critical power distribution in the building.
