Case Study Plocks Farm D-Line
Picow Engineering Group have worked as the preferred EC&I contractor for Golden Acres Pet Food Partners for over 15 years.
The D Line Project constituted the first major development on site for several years, with a new innovative production line, energy centre, odour abatement and water treatment plant, constructed in order to increase the production of dry extruded pet food from 1,500 tonnes to 2,500 tonnes.
CLIENT: Golden Acres
PROJECT: Plocks Farm D- Line
VALUE: £ 2,000,000
SCOPE: Design & Build EC & I Installation
Our role in this project was to lead and deliver the full electrical design and EC&I fit out, which included HV/LV distribution, sub main distribution, power cabling, control cabling, fibre optic and cat 6 data networks, instrumentation, earthing, lightning protection, general power, internal and external lighting including energy efficient automatic control systems to unmanned areas.
This project proved very demanding in terms of programme and labour resource requirements, with 40 skilled Picow engineers and operatives working on site to achieve the complex and rigid phased commissioning timescales. Our site engineers and supervisors worked very closely with Golden Acres and their project suppliers in order to accomplish this.
This projects success was down to the site management and installation teams ability to react under short notice to additional scope and change.
