Here are some examples of our previous works: 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

HMRC Washington 

The remit was to upgrade the three standby generator local control panels and the main control panel. The existing system was an old and obsolete Petbow system which control the three 11kv generators which provided emergency power to the HMRC site and also allowed for the generators to operate in parallel with the local grid supply. 
 
CPS remit was to replace all the controls, we proposed a new design utilising the latest technology using ComAp controllers. We manufactured direct replacement panels for the local generator controls ,which enables our technicians to replace each panel and install the new panels and minimise the time that each generator was off line. The process was to leave at least one generator operational at all times. The main control panel was replaced over a weekend to minimize the downtime. The whole replacement works was completed with the new system fully tested and commissioned and handed over to the client within 2 weeks. 

Stagecoach 

The contract was to design and manufacture low voltage main switchboard and 10 way feeder pillar for the new electric bus charging system at the Stagecoach depot in the South of England. 
 
The design was based around our BSEN61439-2 tested arrangements with the feeder pillar designed for installation outside in the bus depot. 

West Suffolk Hospital – Bury St Edmonds 

CPS were the preferred supply to the trust for the new generator & LV system after many years of working with them on an older standby generator system. 
 
The remit was to design and manufacture a standby generator control system that would allow for parallel operation with the grid supply and also to provide local / remote monitoring of the system. 
 
CPS carried out the field wiring terminations and SAT / commissioning for the complete project. 

Northwick Park Hospital, London 

The contract was to design and manufacture a set of generator and mains paralleling control system for 11kv generators as part of the Trusts major infrastructure upgrade works for a secure power supply to the hospital. 
 
The control system was based on the ComAp system which met the high level of complexity required to control the generators, 11kv switchgear and provide via a fibre cable connection data to allow for load management of the hospital loads. 
 
CPS technicians attended site to carry out the field wiring termination on al lour panels plus 11kv switchboards prior to SAT testing and commissioning before handover to the Trust. 

York & District NHS Trust - Bridlington 

CPS were the preferred supply to the trust for the new generator & LV system after many years of working with them on an older standby generator system. 
 
The remit was to design and manufacture a standby generator control system that would allow for parallel operation with the grid supply and also to provide local / remote monitoring of the system. CPS carried out the field wiring terminations and SAT / commissioning for the complete project. 

Envigo Research Centre – Eye Suffolk 

Control and Power Systems Ltd were approached by the client following several control issues and break downs within their three Generator synchronising control system that supported research blocks. CPS Ltd attended site and completed an initial survey of the generator control system at the Envigo Research Centre in Suffolk, after discussions with the client identifying a number of obsolete equipment it was suggested a complete new control & switching suite of panels would be the most cost effective solution providing the site with a secure back-up power supply. 
 
The new control system was designed and manufactured at our Scarborough facility, fully factory tested prior to shipping to site. CPS Ltd technicians attended site to carryout the works which involved providing of a hire generator, removal of the old control and switchgear panels and installation of the new panel suite, before commissioning the new system and training of the onsite engineers. 
 
“I would just like to say how impressed we have been with the work that has been completed. Gary, Paul, and Jack have done a superb job, and have been a pleasure to have on site.”
