Power Solutions: major follow-up order for Panama brewery

june 12th 2017: The Power Solutions division of Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology has in the past delivered a new MV/LV distribution to the beer brewery Baru in Panama.

A new containerised 1,000 kVA emergency power generator was also installed. As the customer was very satisfied with the quality and flexibility of Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology’s implementation of these projects, they called on us again this year:

Baru urgently needed an expansion of its existing distribution for a new production line that was being installed. We were commissioned to supply a custom-built containerised substation containing a medium-voltage distribution system and 1,000 kVA step-down transformer. In addition, Piet Brouwer Electrotechnology will deliver a class 4A low-voltage distributor that will be placed nearby in the factory. The brief called for the whole system to be delivered as a turnkey solution. Although the order was only received in early April, the entire system needs to be operational by 1 September 2017, which is quite a challenge! The container housing has now been completed and everything will soon be shipped off to Panama.
