Retrofit solutions


Retrofit packages provide a financially viable high quality alternative to increase the life of your existing switchgear. It is often the preferred option to avoid the heavy investment needed to replace whole switchboards and reduce outage times, crucial in industrial, manufacturing and processing facilities.

This process minimises system disruption whilst enabling the upgrade of the switchgear, associated protection and drawings.

Performance enhancement can be achieved at optimum cost through selective modifications and use of retrofit modules.

As part of our retrofit package, client’s drawings are updated on CAD to the latest standards.
