Data Centre Substation GIS Access Platform, Drogheda
At a Glance
The client required us to design and build a cost effective, safe, non-conductive platform to enable access to the substation switchgear.
A non-conductive product was required for health and safety, due to the close proximity of the platform to the switch gear.
In addition, a mobile working platform was required to provide easy access to the switchgear control panels for inspection and maintenance
Our GRP Access Platform provided the perfect working solution to all of the challenges of this project. Due to the high conductivity of the area, the client required a product that was non-conductive but also provided a durable maintenance-free solution.
Due to the non-conductivity of GRP, the platform did not need to be earthed, making it safe for use in the substation. This particular platform was manufactured with an access staircase, safety handrails, and kick plates.
An additional GRP stair viewing and maintenance access platform was made on wheels, so it can easily be moved along the side units for inspection and maintenance.
Relinea’s GRP access platforms are maintenance free which reduces the long-term costs of the system whilst providing peace of mind that the product is fit for purpose for the next 25+years.
