EME Power Systems Fast Response for Major Food Manufacture


A major food manufacturer in the Midlands that employs over 700 people across its manufacturing and office facility found its self without power recently.

After waiting over one hour with no production or output from the facility for its existing high voltage maintenance supplier to respond, they decided enough was enough and sought the assistance of another high voltage specialist.

The maintenance manager called EME Power Systems at around 09.00am and asked for assistance. We sent an engineer straight away and were on site by 10.00am and after a short consultation began fault finding and sectionalising the system.

The cause of the fault was quickly found to be incorrect protection settings on a relay protected circuit breaker and when this was demonstrated to a director of the business they told us that “this had happened a few other times before but the previous company had simply restored power and not checked or altered any of the settings.“

All power was restored by 11.30am that same morning and the factory was back producing food.

The client was left with a satisfied taste in their mouth by the swift and efficient actions of EME Power Systems and its on call engineers. The maintenance manager was quoted as saying “Thank you so much for the fantastic service.”

As our engineer left site there was still no sign of the customer’s contracted HV service provider.

EME Power Systems Managing Director, Robert Horn had this to say:

Yet another example of EME Power Systems being called in to bridge the gap when a competitor fails to measure up. If you have a site that is critical and want to have confidence that you will receive the very highest level of care, attention and emergency support then you need the protection and assurance that an EME Power Systems HV service agreement affords.
