25 Feb 2002 – Stafford-based generator manufacturer Broadcrown has won a contract valued at over £1m ($1.43m) to supply its products for the new UK Deutsche Bank data centre in Hayes, Middlesex.

Broadcrown Group has developed and supplied three of its BCP2200B generators to provide stand by power for the new Deutsche Bank development in Middlesex. Powered by a Perkins 16 cylinder engine, each gen-set has an output of 2200 kVA. The generators are enclosed within individual acoustic containers, which are situated externally at the site. A fourth container houses a freestanding master control panel/switchboard.

The contract demands compliance with health and safety regulations within a tight timeframe. With this in mind, these Broadcrown gen-set include a water type fire suppression system and a gas type fire suppression system for the control panel container.

Frank Harrison, Project Manager for Broadcrown said, “The Broadcrown Group was chosen as Deutsche Bank required a system that meets tough technical specifications yet could be delivered within a stringent time frame. Already a well regarded supplier, Deutsche Bank turned to Broadcrown confident that the generator delivered would be on schedule, and high quality.”

The Broadcrown Group, based at Airfield Industrial Estate in Hixon, Stafford has been manufacturing generator sets and providing power solutions for over 20 years. It has installed systems across the world for a host of different requirements from hospitals and leisure centres to supplying generators in villages throughout the developing world.
