Commander SK drives from Control Techniques have been used to control two twin fan sets within the smoke extraction system in the atrium of the Titanic Belfast centre.

Titanic Belfast was built to continue the story and legacy of the Titanic, to celebrate Belfast’s shipbuilding feats and to commemorate the ship’s maiden voyage and loss of life.

GS Stothers Mechanical and Electrical Engineering was asked by contractor Harvey Group to supply a system that could control the fan sets, with the requirement that the system should be 100 per cent reliable. There was also a tight deadline to be met.

GS Sothers selected 37kW Commander SK drives from Control Techniques — as recommended by Motion Control Systems — to control the fan sets, which were positioned in the fifth- and sixth-floor areas near the top of the atrium in the Titanic building.
