Bells Power Delivers Red Carpet Generation

Red Carpet Experience - Leicester Square - FG Wilson Generators

Bells Power - 48 Leicester Square

Bells Power Group are quickly becoming the preferred supplier and installation of turnkey Generator Solutions in London’s West End, following on from successful complex turnkey installations at Park House and Selfridges on Oxford Street. Bells have now delivered a full turnkey generator installation in the heart of London’s Red Carpet Experience at 48 Leicester Square.

The new building, a 95,000 Sq Ft Headquarter Office building combined with 7,000 Sq Ft of Retail space is the biggest development to be carried out in Leicester Square in decades.

Bells had been contracted by Designer Group and Multiplex to provide a turnkey generator solution consisting of 1 off FG Wilson P1500P3 400KV Generators within a plantroom on Basement Level B2.

Due to the building’s location and use noise was a major factor externally and internally, the Generator set was installed within a bespoke close fit enclosure within the plantroom to reduce the noise level within the plantroom to 80 DB(A) with secondary attenuation added to the system to reduce the noise to 60 dB(A) @ 1 m from the building.

A complete fuel system is to be installed to include a 24 hour capacity bulk storage tank in the adjacent room gravity feeding flow and return to the Generator.

A 450mm I/D flue with 55°C touch temperature was installed from the Generator to the roof termination point.

A full PLC system is to be installed complete with outstations and a fibre ring, which will control the operation of the Generators as well as the operation of the main LV ACBs, monitoring of the fuel system and the PMS of the building.

The System was successfully commissioned by the Bells Power Solution team in Q4 2016.
