United Utilities (Haweswater)

Bespoke solutions for business.

This was a significant challenge for our team as the United Utilities crew needed to operate a number of power tools in a confined space. Due to toxic emissions, the use of diesel was out of the question. But what was particularly unique about this brief is that there couldn’t be any risk of water contamination.

Our custom-made solution was to design and install a 15kw Hussh Pod using a lithium ion battery. This was able to power the tools for up to 12 hours each day (all of the entire working shift), discharging to 80%, and ensuring power was drawn only when absolutely essential. Furthermore, because this model is lightweight and designed to be portable, it could be physically transported into the tunnel at the beginning of each shift and then removed to be recharged overnight, thus eliminating any chance of water contamination.
