As industry specialists in Power Factor Correction upgrades our equipment can provide significant savings. However, it is often neglected and its effectiveness can diminish over time as the capacitors degrade. Switchboard loading can change and harmonics can be introduced that can harm the capacitors and even raise the danger of fire.
We are able to provide Power factor surveys and harmonic studies to determine the suitability of your existing Power Factor Correction (PFC) equipment or we can provide you with new purpose built equipment designed for your installation.
We have carried out a number of Power Factor Correction (PFC) upgrades and replacement sections where we have designed a section to match the existing busbar system and seamlessly replaced a redundant section including Busbars, Isolator, Controller, contactors, fuses, capacitors, indication, detuning reactors, and thermal management.
Where harmonic problems are suspected we can carry out full harmonic surveys and retrofit detuning reactors where required.

We were looking to replace current protection units for our existing switchgear which is now fifteen years old. We managed to contact Richard Hardy who was most helpful and visited our site along with Wayne Yeomans. Between them they sourced the units and arranged fitting to our switchgear. All work was carried out in a very professional manner also with good backup after work was completed.
