    Delayed Payments Still Causing Concern

    Delayed payments continue to be a major cause of concern for businesses providing building services, new industry research has found.

    The overwhelming majority of responders to the Electrical Contractors' Association (ECA) survey indicated that in the final quarter of 2015 they were not always paid within 30 days. These payment terms are widely understood to be good practice in the sector.

    Only 8% of contractors said that all public sector work was paid on time during this period. In the private sector, this figure was even lower with just 6% of respondents saying they had received payment within 30 days.

    The survey also found that eight out of ten building and electrical services firms had increased their turnovers in the period. Specialist areas which enjoyed the most growth included: data communications, audio visual systems, fire and security, systems, and building energy management systems.

    The research was produced in association with Scolmore.

     

    Future Wind Turbines Likely To Be Higher Than The Gherkin

    Wind Turbine GuerkinWind turbines higher than London’s Gherkin are likely to be more common in future, according to a global power engineering specialist company.

    K2 Management consultants believe that new manufacturing techniques will mean turbine heights are likely to soar up to 170 metres in the coming years. This is almost as high as the Eiffel Tower and taller than the BT Tower.

    Over the last decade turbines have grown steadily in height as operators seek stronger wind speeds higher up.

    A MW turbine located in a forest, for instance, with an average wind speed of 6 metres per second will meet 13% more wind speed if the turbine height doubled from 70 to 140 metres, according to wind resource engineers.

    Going higher still to 170 metres is predicted to boost energy yield by 35% on average.

     

    Ellis Clamps Supplied For Hong Kong High Speed Rail Extension

    HK-MTR-Express-Link-TrainManufacturer Ellis has supplied a total of 125,000 cable clamps for the Hong Kong MTR network high speed rail extension.

    The clamps are being used to secure pilot, power, and fibre optic cables throughout all the tunnels in the Hong Kong section of the Express Rail Link (XRL).

    XLR runs from the Shenzhen Hong Kong Boundary - where it connects to the China Mainland - to West Kowloon.

    When fully operational, trains will be able to operate at a maximum speed of 200km per hour. Journey times would be cut by an average of 50%.

    ETS Cable Components are the official suppliers, stockists and distributors of Ellis Patents cable cleats and clamps in the UK. See the extensive range here.

  • ETS Cable Cleats For West Of Shetland Gas Plant Serving Laggan And Tormore Fields

    Cable cleats from leading power cable accessories supplier ETS have been installed at The Shetland Gas Plant which came into operation this week.

    Even though the Laggan and Tormore vast reserves were discovered over 30 years ago, poor weather conditions have meant that up until now only oil was able to be extracted from the area.

    Now Total with its partners have built the production system on the seabed 600m down,140km from land. Gas is taken back to land in one of the world’s longest “tieback” pipe networks to the Shetland plant for treatment. A pipeline carries the gas to the mainland and then into the national gas grid.

    Energy To Two Million Homes

    The Shetland Gas Plant development is said to be the biggest construction project in the UK since the London Olympics in 2012.

    Cleats were specified by Petrofac, the EPC contractor. ETS supplied the cleats through Petrofac’s appointed sub-contractor.

    The new plant is capable of delivering energy to two million homes (about 8% of the UK's gas needs) and will handle each day 500 million standard cubic feet of gas.

    ETS Major Projects Manager, Matt Taylor, said:

    “We were pleased to be chosen as a supply partner for this high profile development at The Shetland Gas Plant. This once again is a reflection of our high quality service that we always strive to deliver.”

    ETS have worked closely with cleat manufacturer Ellis on a number of projects across different sectors. In April last year, the partners helped restore power back to the West End after a major underground fire.

    Cleats supplied for The Shetland Gas Plant development included:

     VRT Vulcan Cable Cleat
    Vulcan Cable Cleats
     Emperor Cleat
    Emperor Stainless Steel Trefoil Cable Cleats

     

    ETS are leading stockists and distributors of LV, MV and HV power cable accessories and electrical equipment for the utilities markers.
