One of our largest System 50 switchboards was supplied to ABB as part of the Pen y Cymoedd Wind Energy Project. The switchboard was installed on a floor standing support frame as the incoming and outgoing cable access was from below.

Charnvel additionaly supplied the switchboard for the connection from the wind farm, to the new National Grid substation at Rhigos.

All aspects of the LVAC supply were covered by Charnvel; design, manufacture, testing, installation and comissioning.
