Slaters on-site

Early start for some of our Sheffield team this morning removing Genie SF6 circuit breakers from a city centre office #substation.

We purchase modern reusable #transformers and #switchgear with safe and professional equipment decommissioning and removal all part of the service.

For an assessment of your redundant electrical plant and removal options, for example due to site closure, changing power requirements or equipment upgrades, please contact Martin McGuirk:

More fantastic customer support from our Site Services & Contracting division responding to an urgent call out to a foundry in South Yorkshire early this morning.

Our team of highly experienced SAPs are based at our Sheffield office and offer a wide range of services to owners and operators of #transformer and #switchgear substations, switchrooms, private electrical networks and associated power generation & distribution equipment.

We are saddened to see the devastating flooding in South Yorkshire and surrounding areas, particularly #Sheffield, #Doncaster & #Rotherham.

Our Sheffield and Newcastle teams stand ready to assist businesses who are concerned about damage to their HV power distribution equipment and networks.

This picture is from one of several emergency call outs our Sheffield site services team took overnight to isolate (where safe) HV networks to make site safe – in some cases remotely.

Dispatched this month

Our latest #containerised #substation dispatched (appropriately!) to a port this afternoon where it will support temporary site supplies for a major #infrastructure upgrade project.

With EU Regulation 2019/1783 dated 1 October 2019 (amending the original Ecodesign transformer regulation 548/2014), confirming that #refurbished transformers can continue to be supplied and installed, they remain an extremely popular (and cost, resource & lead time effective) choice for our customers.

Visit to Schneider Electric

Seven of our Sales Engineers and Site Services Engineers (SAPs) enjoyed a visit to Schneider Electric in Leeds yesterday to familiarise themselves with the new RN2d ring main unit. The RN2d will supersede the RN2c which is being withdrawn from manufacture later this year.

With four decades of experience, dating back to the original Yorkshire Switchgear units, we are experts in the #Ringmaster range and we know that it is important to invest time to keep our product knowledge up to date – a further 8 staff members will attend a second session next week.

We offer the following products and services across the entire Ringmaster range (RN, RE, CN, CE, SN, SE, MU):

  • Large stock of brand new and refurbished units available on short lead times (regularly dispatched same day!)
  • Installation, extensions, upgrades etc
  • Testing, maintenance, repair & refurbishment
  • Spare parts
  • On site switching
  • Hire fleet of three complete Ringmaster switchboards (two frame mounted, one containerised)
