ECS offers a comprehensive range of electrical engineering capabilities which is supported by its skilled engineers and accreditation by the NICEIC and ECA.
From complete design and installation projects to periodic inspection and test work, ECS has the resources and expertise to plan, design, manage and commission a wide range of industrial applications.
Supported by CAD designers and experienced project managers, the field engineers are able to coordinate with the civil and mechanical aspects of each project to ensure that progress is efficient and completion deadlines are met.
As members of Construction Line, ECA & the NICEIC, clients can be assured of the highest standards in every aspect of their projects.
We can produce detailed cable schematics, loop diagrams and schedules to accompany all of our installation works.
Offered as part of our tender packages is our in-house CAD drawing office, where we can produce a General Arrangement (GA) of the layout and equipment associated with the design. This enables a full breakdown of the project where we can meet with our client and discuss further design requirements or enhance the current offerings.
We have an in-house steel fabrication department that can fabricate structures and bracketry for additional company support in our design and build role. In addition, our Mechanical teams are available to assist on any mechanical aspects of a project. This makes ECS the company to come to for all your project design requirements.
Site Survey / Inspection & Testing
ECS carry out site surveys when an initial project scope is proposed, our design teams will gather information to produce a detailed CAD drawing or a comprehensive estimate to complete the feasibility of the project. It can determine a precise location, access, best orientation for the site and the location of obstacles that may hinder the project.
Wiring Traces, Cable Schedules, P & ID, & Fault Reports
Wire tracing services can help to make your repair or improvement work faster, safer, and more efficient. Knowing the location of wiring can help you to prevent issues including electrical interference and overloading of circuits. ECS has the tools and expertise to conduct wiring traces quickly and safely.
Cable schedules provide a convenient for those involved in maintenance, installation, etc. to accurately determine things such as cable type, voltage, size and location, core number, and route length. They apply to a number of cable functions including communications, power and control, and instrumentation. ECS creates cable schedules designed for ease of use by electrical installation contractors.
A piping and instrumentation diagram is a useful demonstration of the design of a physical system as well as the equipment it is composed of. A P&ID also illustrates how various systems interconnect, making inspections such as those related to safety hazards and operability faster and more efficient. ECS designs all of its P&ID diagrams in accordance with ISA standards.
High Voltage Surveys
ECS has undertaken the High Voltage Maintenance contract for the Environment Agency for many years. We look after the main incoming 11 KV panel along with the 3.3 KV supply panel to the large water pumps that are rated at over 1,000 KW. These pumps provide critical flood defence to the area and prevent major incidents happening in the county.
Our in house design and CAD drawing department will visit your site to carry out a full survey so that a feasibility can be done for your Project. We can supply all relevant drawings for the project to include design layouts and General Arrangements (GA) Construction drawings and As built drawings that can be included in your O&M Manuals.
NICEIC & ECA Certified Electricians
ECS’s experienced team of electrical engineers are NICEIC and ECA certified. This means you can rest assured that when you call us, you will be visited by a technician who is highly qualified to provide the best possible service. Whether you are a landlord requiring certification for letting purposes, or a business owner in need of fire alarm certification, ECS provides a one-stop shop for all of your electrical certification needs.
Inspection & Testing Reports
Our engineers are available when you need them to provide periodic inspection and testing reports. Using software-based tools, we conduct inspections according to your testing needs and automatically generate an Electrical Installation Condition Report.
New Installation Certificates
If you have recently undergone a new electrical installation, or have introduced additional circuits to an existing installation, ECS can provide the Electrical Installation Certificate (in accordance with Standard BS 7671) you need to prove the safety of the design, construction, and testing of your electrical system.
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
ECS’s portable appliance testing services keep your business in strict compliance with the Health & Safety at Work Act. Regular maintenance, inspection and testing ensure that you and your employees are safe from accidents caused by faulty or poorly-maintained appliances. We offer professional and affordable onsite testing services, after which we provide a PAT electrical safety certificate and appliance register for your health and safety records.
In-Depth Inspections & Condition Reports
Regular inspections and electrical condition reports can help to detect dangerous faults before they lead to damage, injury, or loss of life. ECS will conduct an in-depth inspection of your electrical installation to determine existing or potential hazards, and provide the certification you need to satisfy legal and insurance requirements.
Low Carbon Solutions Surveys
Our energy analysis strategies can help you determine a plan of action to make your business the most energy-efficient it can be. After measuring your level of energy consumption, we offer solutions to help you both improve efficiency and minimize your carbon footprint.
ECS provides a turnkey service to a wide range of clients including water utility companies and the Environment Agency.
With the ability to design, manufacture, install and maintain complete projects including switchgear, motor control centres and installations in potentially explosive atmospheres, ECS can deliver every project on time and on budget.
High and Medium Voltage Maintenance and Replacement
Appropriate upkeep of switch gear and motor isolators is essential for safety critical applications, such as flood defence systems. If ECS identifies a fault during a survey, its engineers are able to offer guidance on whether repairing the original equipment or replacing it with an update is the most efficient solution.
ECS engineers are qualified to install electrical equipment from low voltage 230V and 400V isolators to high voltage systems up to 11KV. Experience includes a long term maintenance contract with Environmental Agency looking after main incoming 11KV panels along with 3.3KV supply panels for large water pumps rated over 1,000KV.
