Bache Brothers

Objective / Goals

  • Required back-up systems to ensure cool-room conditions for their wholesale fruit/vegetables
  • Wanted to ensure optimum ripening conditions could be maintained, and their perishable products had a consistent and reliable cool-room environment.

Problem / Issues

  • Maintaining a power supply to ensure quality of their perishable produce
  • Maintaining an optimum health safety environment for the product to prevent spoiling of their produce
  • Maintaining cool-room reliability to ensure they could supply their customers consistently (to support varied ripening timeframes)

Solutions

  • Supplied and installed a 300kVA generator
  • Ensured that the new generator system had capacity for 7-days’ worth of fuel as a cautionary measure
  • Included a remote fuel point for refuelling the bulk fuel tank on the roof
  • Incorporated a Closed Transition Switching Solution that ensures the facility experiences no seen loss of power as it monitors the network, and starts their generator before a power blackout
  • Integrated an additional power source of peak lopping to enable the company to choose when to use mains power, or when it may be more advantageous for them to generate their own power due to high retail charges from their energy provider
    Outcome
  • Reliable fuel facilities to maintain operation of the generator sets for 7 days
  • Reliable power supply for their perishable products, requiring optimum environmental cool-room conditions
  • Increased cost controls over operating costs with longevity of supply, and the ability to transfer to diesel power should market energy rates rise above their budgeted rates

Outcome

  • Reliable fuel facilities to maintain operation of the generator sets for 7 days
  • Reliable power supply for their perishable products, requiring optimum environmental cool-room conditions
  • Increased cost controls over operating costs with a longevity of supply, and the ability to transfer to diesel power should market energy rates rise above their budgeted rates
