We were very pleased to be asked to be the power contractor for Hijacked 2015. Our system design included a synchronised pair of 100kVA sets with a distribution system for the main stage and several other smaller systems. Some of the cable routes were challenging, even threading cables through trees to reach one of the bars. The site lighting consisted of over 400 metres of festoon and six tower lights.
We also supplied a small (13kVA) generator with an extended run tank for the build and get out period. This was used to power the site office and to provide power for the set building team. The advantage of the extended run tank is that it reduces fuel management costs when generators are used for longer periods.
Alongside Power Management services, we were pleased to act as plant brokers – organising the delivery and operation of a 9m telehandler and a steel portacabin for use as a site office. At dB production services, we try to go the extra mile to make a show happen – so when the site manager lost the portacabin key, our on-site team responded with a new lock in just a few hours!
