Fashion Retailer Chooses YorPower
4th January 2018
In early 2017 multinational fashion retailer, BooHoo, commenced build on their new, state of the ar,t distribution centre in Preston, Lancashire. Through a competitive tender process the contractor responsible for the mechanical and electrical part of the project appointed YorPower to supply and install a backup power system. The YorPower projects team, headed by Jim Riley, are due to start installation of a 2,500kVA, Cummins powered, genset designed specifically to support the distribution centre in the event of a power outage. Jim Riley stated, “This is an exciting project for us and demonstrates our capability in the large projects sector, from design concept through to installation, site works, testing and commissioning and aftercare.”
The retailer operates a huge warehouse supplying customers in the USA and Australia as well as the UK, working round the clock. Clearly, with such a massive operation, being exposed to possible power cuts was not an option for the company so investing in a state of the art generator to ensure that they were always running was a simple decision.
YorPower were able to demonstrate the capability to supply and install large scale generator projects, on time and within budget. The project is due for completion in Q1 2018.
