CONTRACT NEWS THE RIGHT TRACK POWER OF SCOTLAND Evolt has been selected by the Energy Saving Trust (EST) as one of the companies to provide EV charging solutions on a new Scotland-wide framework agreement. The new framework includes the right to tender, be selected, or quote for the installation of rapid, commercial and domestic charging units on the mainland and in the Highlands and Islands. The announcement follows a full tender and is effective immediately to an initial expiry date of December 2018. Having established itself as a significant player on the Scottish EV charge point supplier market over the past five years, Evolt has supplied in excess of 1,100 charging points to 24 local councils and many private businesses in Scotland. Included in the 1,100 Evolt charge points installed in Scotland are 85 of the Evolt Rapid chargers. Each unit can efficiently charge two EVs to 80 per cent of their battery life within 30 minutes through a 50kW DC and 43kW AC outlet. ABB has used Ellis’ innovative Cable Guide Clamp to install HV cables in the Kensal Green section of National Grid’s Crossrail Connection Scheme in London. Designed to feed, and then restrain, large diameter cables along routes that feature significant numbers of twists and turns, Ellis’ Cable Guide Clamp was used by ABB on SGT1 and SGT2 transformer end cable sealing support structures. Ellis’ Cable Guide Clamp works in two stages. Firstly, cables are guided by it into their final location, while trumpeted entry and exit points ensure the cable is not damaged when fed through particularly sharp angled turns. Once the cable is laid correctly, the top half of the guide is removed, a fixing piece installed directly onto the cable and the top half resecured, thus turning it into a fully functioning HV cable clamp. Crossrail is a new railway for London and the South East. Aimed at improving journey times across London, easing congestion and improving connections, it features 42km of new tunnels and will deliver a 10 per cent increase to London’s rail capacity when it opens in 2019. TENANTS IN TWEED Berwickshire Housing Association (BHA) has installed smoke and heat alarm systems from Aico to keep tenants safe in their homes. BHA has 1,800 homes in Berwickshire and Berwick-upon-Tweed, from single flats and family homes to bungalows adapted for disabled people and sheltered housing for older people. Aico’s new mains powered multi-sensor fire alarm, Ei2110e, will be installed throughout all of these properties over the coming years. In addition to the multi-sensors, BHA will be installing Ei450 alarm controllers to allow tenants to test and silence alarms on the system, plus locate the trigger alarm, all from a safe, accessible location. Aico’s fire/CO alarm interface, Ei414, will also be installed. The installation work has already begun, starting in BHA’s empty properties, with the aim of bringing them up to the more stringent LD2 category of fire protection. To meet this, multi-sensors will be installed in the main living area and will be replacing optical and ionisation alarms on exit routes. This will be rolled out to all BHA’s housing stock over time.
