ISS Ltd are proud to announce a successful tender and contract award for a multi million pound refurbishment of the Electrical Distribution network infrastructure at HJ Heinz in Kitt Green, Wigan.
ISS have worked with Heinz for a number of years providing critical Switchgear Maintenance and support services for the entire HV & LV Network. The contract award follows on from a lengthy review of the existing HV Installation & LV Installation systems, identification of plant to be replaced or upgraded, and the development of a detailed proposal, submitted to Heinz late in 2010.
The project will be delivered over 2 years, with a staged programme of substation replacement works, totalling 14 substations. This will involve substation de-commissioning and removal, followed by installation and commissioning of replacement HV & LV Switchgear, provision of HV and LV retrofit solutions, and the replacement of the entire HV cable distribution system. A complete SCADA system will be installed and commissioned to tie the system together. ISS will manufacture and supply our own Omega Switchgear range of LV Distribution Switchboards, and will install and commission Siemens Simoprime 11kV Switchgear for the HV equipment.
This is a significant achievement for ISS after putting in a lot of hard work, together with the project team at the Heinz Kitt Green site, to submit a viable and competitive proposal for approval from the HJ Heinz Board of Directors in the United States.
Managing Director Chris Lomax stated “we are delighted with the decision to be awarded the contract by Heinz. This demonstrates the strength of the Heinz and ISS relationship, built over years of successfully working together. It also further highlights the quality of the Power Engineering Services that ISS can offer our customers”.
