A full turnkey backup power solution comprising 2 X AJ770 Scania Powered DC16 078 canopied sets, bunded bulk fuel tanks, delivery, installation and commissioning.

When Scania GB announced plans for a new main office in Milton Keynes they contacted their long standing partner AJ Power to provide the emergency power solution.

The UK Customer Support Centre at Milton Keynes, occupies almost eight acres with the main building providing 6,200sqm over three storeys. After reviewing their requirements, the Project Team at AJ Power, recommended they would supply two AJ770 diesel gensets powered by a Scania DC16 78 engine. The specification included; auto start panel, coolant heater, alternator anti condensation heater, bunded base fuel tank, fire valve and an automatic fuel transfer system.

As the contractors and consultants for the project the AJ Power Project Team attended a site meeting to finalise the generator specification and establish the installation requirements on site. As part of the installation it was agreed that AJ Power would supply, deliver and position the two gensets along with two 850 Litre bunded bulk tanks, fill points, double skinned fuel pipework complete with leak detection system.

After the completion of the installation AJ Power engineers visited the new site to test and commission the generating sets with InSight4000 controllers and provide training on general operation of the system. Using the InSight4000 controllers internal PLC, AJ Power were able to program bespoke fuel transfer logic which monitors the fuel level in the gensets day tank, if the generating set reaches a low level the bulk tank will be called to pump fuel into the day tank.

Each AJ Power generating sets operates in conjunction with a fully automated customer changeover panel to provide backup power to two separate LV switchboards. Each generating set is backup to one side of the switchboard, if a mains fails on either side the corresponding generating set will be called to start. A bus tie breaker can also be incorporated to route power between each switchboard to ensure full backup.

AJ Power would like to congratulate Scania GB on the opening of their fantastic new Milton Keynes head office.
