Hager energy monitoring solution installed in Essex school

Phase one of the major refurbishment involved the removal of old switchgear and installation of a Hager 800A rated panelboard with meters fitted to all outgoing circuits at the school, which took just two weeks during the holidays to minimise disruption.

Phase two of the installation proved even more complex, with the incoming cable entering through the ceiling. To avoid bending and stressing the cable and affecting its termination into the board, Hager has provided an engineered solution with the incomer repositioned at the top of the panelboard.

The detailed metering goes beyond the requirements of Part L and is part of the school’s policy to record and manage its energy consumption over the long term. Providing protection and monitoring for half of the school, the 800A rated board allows for possible future expansion of the electrical load. Plans include a new IT suite and extending the air conditioning to more rooms.
