Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals – Switchgear Upgrade

In this case study Premium Power were tasked with project managing a switchgear upgrade including liaison with supplier companies. The project needed to be completed within a tight timeframe.

The Challenge

The entire project was to be completed within a tight time frame to ensure that on site works were commenced and completed within the facility shut-down period.

How we Helped

We were retained by the Client to provide a full EPCM package that would solve the issues observed. Premium Power developed a tender package and issued it to three pre-approved switchgear manufacturers. The competitive tendering process ensured that the project costs were minimised for the client. On award of the project to the winning switchgear manufacturer, we project managed the entire process during a very short facility shut-down period. We successfully managed the construction process, completed commissioning and successfully handed back the facility to the client on time and on-budget.

“We diagnosed the issues, designed the solution, project managed the construction, commissioned the systems and successfully handed back the system to a happy client in time for operations to resume at the facility. The tight timeframe for conducting these works meant that we had to have a hands on approach to ensure that the schedule was met.”
Andrew Hogan, Senior Electrical Engineer

The Result

Premium Power ensured that the switchgear was upgraded to resolve the issues on site. Having diagnosed the issues, offered the solutions to mitigate against the problems and project managed the upgrade within the time frame required, our client was satisfied that the issues were addressed in a timely and expert manner. By taking on the project to manage we could offer our client a smooth and hassle free upgrade.
