AF Switchgear was selected to supply the complete Power Distribution Unit for No 20. Fenchurch Street (also known as the Walkie Talkie Building) in the City of London.
The Walkie Talkie building was designed by the Uruguayan architect, Rafael Viñoly. Canary Wharf Management and Land Securities set up a joint venture to construct the £200m building, which is 525ft tall and consists of 38 floors plus a high-level Sky Garden.
AF Switchgear’s contract was to supply and install 13no.Package Substations, 51no. Switchboards and a complete Energy Management System.
A substation helps to regulate high voltages, reducing them so that power can be easily and efficiently distributed to home and businesses.
A Power Distribution Unit (PDU) helps to control the electrical power in data centres by providing standard electrical outlets.
