Storm Ciara 93mph takes down power lines

Sunday 09.34hrs we received a call from a local venue asking if we would be able to attend their venue with a 100kva generator to power up their 38 bedroom venue and catering kitchen. The venue had 200 guests for their wedding breakfast and entertainment thereafter.

Sunday 09.47hrs the venue manager confirmed that there was a 3 x 100amp 380v - 400v supply powering up the venue. The kitchen was mostly gas appliance 4 x Rational ovens and various gas fryers which would all be unusable if the power went down, due to the gas interlock shutting down under a power failure.

Sunday 13.36hrs the phone rang again, the power was still on, the wedding breakfast was almost finished. We stood down our electrical engineer from emergency status to standby.

Our advice to any remote wedding or conference venue is to fit a AMF panel (Automatic Mains Failure) connected to a standby generator.

We can fit an AMF panel and site a standby generator on a 60 month fully maintained rental from as little as £69.00 + VAT per week.
