This is quite a geeky post!Today we completed what has probably been the biggest infra-structure project undertaken at Blaithwaite House in the last couple of decades - an upgrade to the site electrical supply. We have been "short" of electricity for a long time and this work will provide us with a new 100KVA supply - plenty for our needs. It all started back in Spring 2010 - we did the groundwork trenches ourselves; ENS laid the cable; Electricity North West supplied & fitted the new transformer & distribution module; EON supplied & fitted the metering and David Young upgraded all the switch gear. After much negotiation and a few false starts four separate groups of contractors arrived on site today & the final pieces of the jig-saw came together without any problems! The pictures below tell the days story.
