Click to enlarge and view slideshow

Project Overview:

The University of Tasmania is undertaking research on Rock Lobsters and as such require no power interruptions to their research laboratory power.  There could potentially be months' worth of research destroyed should there be loss of power for extended periods.
Contact only had a small window of eight hours to complete the total installation which posed some logistical challengers.

Project Scope:

Contact Electrical tendered to install a 900 KVA Olympian generator.  This unit was chosen based on the solid reputation Olympian has in the market and also the fact that Contact could service and maintain this unit.


The generator was successfully installed in the time frame and was signed off by the facilities engineer once all the relevant tests were completed.   This reliable Generator now provides confidence to the staff at the facility that all their important work is protected against power outages.
