Contingency Power

Understanding your contingency power connection needs

IDE has over 25 years' experience in designing power distribution solutions. With direct access to our skilled engineers, we can help you understand and specify solutions for generator connection.

Highest reliability components and switchgear

You need to know that, when it's needed, the contingency power can be relied upon. We use the highest quality switchgear in all our products, giving you confidence.

Site survey and installation

We provide site surveys to advise on positioning and power connection and switching requirements, and can also install if required.

Long term partnership

We innovate to suit the needs of our customers and can create bespoke products and services to match your capital and operational budgets.

This solution is used to make connection from your facility to the back-up power supply and supporting contingency power solution. Our single-core HO7RN-F cables can be terminated with lugs or powerlocks and are rubber flex, which makes it easier for engineers to move around site, without causing disruption to business operations. Available to purchase or hire and can be turned around quickly to support your project.
