Installation contract

York-based generator supplier Yorpower Manufacturing has been awarded a turnkey contract for a 1.5MW installation in Manchester.

The scope of supply includes two soundproof and weatherproof containerised generators, a static load bank, 14,000 litre fuel tank and complete control system.

The complete installation is required on the 13th floor of a new office building in Manchester, part of the Spinningfields redevelopment in the city centre.

The award follows the successful supply and installation of two generators for a UK bank in the same development earlier this year.

The project is due for completion in autumn 2008.

Separately, Yorpower is to supply the first phase of generators for Africa’s largest mobile telecommunications company, MTN in Uganda.

The generators are required as part of ongoing development of the telecommunications network in Uganda, associated with MTN’s continental expansion. Phase one will require the supply of 30 generators built to the client’s specification.

The generators are due to be delivered later this year.
