EvoEnergy’s HV & LV infrastructure service exists to install, update and maintain industrial electrical distribution systems. We have developed an expertise in this area, working on large-scale projects around the United Kingdom. The businesses we work with have seen increased productivity and efficiency as a result of our work, helping them to maximise their resources and keep costs low.
What is HV & LV infrastructure?
HV and LV stand for high voltage and low voltage. HV/LV infrastructure refers to the systems that are concerned with transforming an electrical current from one to the other, altering the voltage as it reaches different areas and components.
In the case of a house or smaller building, the National Grid does much of the work that is needed to keep your electricity supply appropriate for your needs. Larger, industrial facilities have very different requirements. They often need to have their own HV/LV infrastructure in place to keep their electrical supply as efficient as possible.
EvoEnergy’s HV & LV service
EvoEnergy has the expertise and capacity to manage every aspect of HV and LV infrastructure, including installation, updates to existing infrastructure and management in the future. We can tailor our service to your requirements to make sure that your business gets exactly what you need from us.
Modernisation of existing electrical infrastructure
One of the most important parts of our service is our ability to modernise existing electrical infrastructure. Your site may have HV/LV systems in place already but they may not be operating at peak efficiency. If your systems are a few years or decades old, you may want to consider modernisation.
By modernising your infrastructure, EvoEnergy will increase your system’s capacity to provide the electricity that your site needs. This leads to the benefits we’ve mentioned already: increased productivity and efficiency.
Transformer & switchgear installation
Another important aspect of our HV and LV infrastructure service is the installation of a modern transformer and switchgear, along with the connections that integrate them with the wider site. These installations make the HV and LV system viable, doing the hard work of changing the voltage and getting electricity to the right places.
Total project management
EvoEnergy’s commitment to total project management means that we can be the single point of contact for this service. We will manage all of the different elements that go into infrastructure installations and updates, ensuring that the work is carried out with minimal disruption to your day to day activities.
What are the commercial benefits of infrastructure changes?
If your facility has been around for a while, it’s likely that its infrastructure is unsuited to its current uses. If the facility has only ever been used by one business, that business’s requirements will still have changed over time, which means that the old systems might not be able to power the site as effectively as possible.
Even if your requirements haven’t changed all that much, older infrastructure will have lost efficiency through natural wear and tear. Updating or replacing it is a natural part of its lifecycle.
Carrying out these changes will result in your business working on a site that is fully prepared to deal with your most up to date processes and needs. The commercial benefits from your increased capacity to run the machinery you want to run at the levels you need it to operate. If your machinery is running more efficiently, you will see greater productivity compared to previous timeframes and get more value from the electricity you use.
