Star Live Technical Director, Roger Barrett contacted SES Entertainment Services requiring a large amount of power distribution units and cabling for three large semi-permanent contracts that the firm had been awarded.
“Due to the technical requirements and location of the brief at hand distribution was designed around a fixed brief, something that us here at SES are more than used to,” SES Entertainment Services Group Director, Gordon Cooper explained. “The first stage of the project was to have design drawings approved by Star Live to ensure that each of the units would fit into each location – with some of the units housed under the main structure, they had to be exact.”
Once the drawings were approved, SES commenced manufacture of over 50 bespoke units and over 100 supply cables, which were shipped shortly after order confirmation and run into position, awaiting the delivery of the distribution units.
Each of the three sites were supplied with a 630A freestanding steel intake unit, which were fitted with P3 connectors’ newly-designed angled Powerlock. Alongside these units were a stainless steel framed Powerlock SES PowerPro 5 distribution unit with a range of outgoing sockets, including an internally mounted 2KVA 110V transformer, which was incorporated into the design.
With a selection of other final distribution units to complete each package, SES designed, fabricated, wired, tested and inspected the whole order in four weeks from approval. “Roger and his team were extremely impressed with the quality and timescale SES completed the project and would have no hesitation in using SES on any other projects in the future,” Cooper concluded.
