Gulfstream Farnborough Airport

Perfect landing for Farnborough

The background:

Halsall delivered a brand-new facility for Gulfstream Jets, built alongside Farnborough Airport specifically for servicing and repair works on Gulfstream Jets. The world class facility has been created from initial concept to final delivery.

A new LV supply was installed to the building, which was later requested by the client to be upgraded to an HV supply once the full electrical loads were realised as the project developed. New LV panels were installed in the main switch room which fed sub-distribution boards and in turn local distribution boards throughout all areas including “The Customer Tower”- a 3 storey office area includes a stunning visitor platform overlooking the runway.

What we say:

“We installed a number of specialist floor boxes throughout the hanger to provide compressed air, static earth, power and 400 hertz supplies to the aircraft and for servicing works all housed in specialist in ground pop up boxes fed by specialist wall mounted control panels. Within all these areas Halsall Electrical installed lighting, small power, access control, data all run on separate containment networks throughout the building.”
