OVERVIEW OF WORKS
For just under the past four years, WB Power Services have been working with the National Space Centre to a flexible, bespoke service
contract, providing maintenance services for their incumbent back-up power supply.

The National Space Centre have maintained their professional relationship for 4 years due to WB Power’s ability to offer a customer focused, honest and efficient service. WB Power have utilised their
expertise to keep the site’s incumbent generator in excellent operational condition.

WORKS UNDERTAKEN
WB Power have provided a cost effective, flexible
solution to fulfill the maintenance and service
needs of the back-up power supply for the facility.
The service package contained one major service
per year, completed by a WB Power service
engineer during normal working hours. Further
details include:

  • Pre-service checks
  • Full mechanical checks
  • Safety checks
  • Electrical DC
  • Electrical AC
  • Offline test run
  • Completion checks

On completion of each visit, a detailed service report was issued, which detailed all work carried out and highlighting, if any, recommendations to keep the generator in a safe and reliable condition.

Furthermore, an oil sample was taken at time of the service, which would then be sent away for laboratory analysis. This would further enhance the ability of the engineering team to flag any issues before they occured.
