Containerised Substations

Containerised substations inside the Bowers factory

Bowers supplies containerised substations, utilising either new or refurbished modified containers, with HV & LV switchgear and transformer fitted integrally.

Containers are offered as standard or bespoke packages to suit the client’s requirements. Containerised substations are perfect for customers who need portability and flexibility when it comes to using their substations. They are suitable for temporary supply or if supply is needed in different areas of the site.

The containers are fully equipped and assembled prior to delivery, allowing for minimal site and civil works.

Our typical containerised substations package compromises of an ISO 20 or 40-foot new or refurbished shipping container modified to the Bowers Package Substation specification.

Wall mounted distribution board for lighting and general supplies.
Overhead fluorescent strip lights complete with light switch.
Access door at switchboard end with push bolt release.
Mesh fence at front end of sub-station with mesh door access.
Mesh fence with door access segregating HV & LV sides.
Provision for cable access for 11kV cable.
Provision for cable access out of container for LV panel.
Internal earth bar and danger signs, “electricity at work” poster.

Additional options include but not restricted to:

  • 30V DC wall-mounted tripping unit
  • Thermostatic wall-mounted heaters
  • Air conditioning

  • Extracting cooler fans at the front and rear of the container, complete with speed control, thermostat, and gravity shutters
  • External flood light with ‘walk up’ sensor
