Bells have secured the supply and installation contract for the supply of the life safety generator at the iconic BBC Worldwide HQ, the generator set is to be installed for the first part of the entire site redevelopment for the new Headquarter Building being carried out by Lend Lease with M&E services by T. Clarke.

A F G Wilson P800P 800KVA Generator with an oversized 1500KVA alternator is to be installed within a bespoke 75 dB(A) @ 1 Mtr acoustic enclosure, a dedicated remote bulk storage/transfer system is to be installed local to the enclosure to provide 12 hours running at full load.

The configuration of pairing the oversized alternator with the generator has been designed so that the conditions of TB210 sprinkler locked rotor can be taken by the generator was maintaining all other life safety plant, whilst ensuring that the generator rating is nearer that of normal running load ensuring that the generator is not running in normal running conditions at low load preventing the generator life cycle from being reduced.

This solution further provided the project with a more cost effective route as the generator set size was kept to a minimum and it further ensured that the generator solution spatially fit with the allocated zone.
