Here is one example of AVID’s Switch-rooms, where we supplied multiple modular switch-rooms for an overseas gold mine. The switch rooms were manufactured from modified sea containers with three 40′ containers joined to create a large Process Plant room. An 18m long back-to-back Low Voltage Eaton with-drawable modular type tested IEC61439 switchboard was manufactured by Avid and installed into one of the room modules, while a 5-tier HV Eaton board was installed into another module. A separate 20′ container was fitted out with another Low Voltage Motor control center switchboard for the Feed Plant. The rooms were fitted with a UPS providing battery backup to critical systems as well as lighting and power circuits. A VESDA system was also installed throughout. Following integration and testing, the switch room was disassembled ready for transport by sea to West Africa.
