Recovering power while racing against time to keep vital production rolling
Disaster struck in the late hours at a local bakery facility, when its HV transformer malfunctioned, leaving the entire facility without power.
The facility supplies a large amount and variety of different bread in the market place. Every hour of non-production could mean potential loss of profits and a lowered reputation.
The customer’s key objective- to get production back on track ASAP – was our key objective too, and we needed to act quickly to make sure we achieved it.

Produced per hour in bakery plant
On site within 30 minutes and power switched on within 7 hours
The late hour did not affect our response time - our team swung into action right after the electrical contractor servicing the bakery plant called and we arrived on-site within 30 minutes.
We devised a solution after a swift assessment, so we installed one 1250 kVA generator to get power back on site and a subsequent 800 kVA generator as our team deemed additional capacity was required to share the load.
The equipment was also armed with our proprietary remote monitoring (Aggreko Remote Monitoring) tool, allowing us to adapt to changes along the way as the project progresses.
