Mugen Euro motorsport experts enlisted the services of E.P.E.S to carry out the installation of the HV equipment for a new power supply when it relocated its research and development centre at the end of 2013. Bowers Electricals supplied the equipment and as both are part of the Bowers Group of Companies we have worked seamlessly on many projects together before.
Hiro Toyoda, Mugen Euro’s vice president, said the expansion of the business had led to the need for a significantly larger, better-equipped facility. “Moving to the new premises was a huge industrial challenge for us but it has also been an opportunity to take advantage of the latest available technologies by installing the most up-to-date dynamometers and control equipment, as well as markedly improving the facilities for our staff and visitors,” he said.
E.P.E.S installed two bespoke 1500kVA Bowers BEST range transformers for Mugen Euro, as well as overhauling the company’s current 1600kVA unit and building and installing three LV distribution boards and new HV switchgear for the whole site.
The eight-week project saw the EPES/Bowers team take care of every element, from connecting the local electricity provider to the site boundary, to digging trenches and carrying out all civil engineering works.
“Our experienced engineers provide a full turnkey offering and in this case provided Mugen Euro with manufacturing, overhauling, refurbishment, installation, testing and commissioning services,” added Michael. “Having all of these elements managed by one team meant that Mr Toyoda and his colleagues could concentrate on their fascinating projects with the confidence that their new site was being professionally managed.”
