SES and 11th Hour in Winter WonderlandSES plan to manufacture more units similar to this one ranging from 800A upwards
UK - SES has just manufactured and delivered its first purpose built 1600A all HDPE Mains Distribution Unit which was ordered by Cardiff based 11th Hour Events for a long term job at the Cardiff Winter Wonderland.

This size MDU, traditionally built from steel, was designed from scratch by SES's Mark Cooper to fulfil the requirements of 11th hour events. Encompassing a 1600A Bus bar chamber, and 6 sets of outgoing powerlock, the design was a challenge even for Marks wealth of design experience. "Steel is a very forgiving and easy to work material, and can simply be bent and welded,but when using HDPE, the thought process into the engineering takes a lot more time".

11th hour wanted to get away from the traditional steel units as they are easy to damage, do not weather very well and are difficult to repair. By choosing the unit that SES manufactured, it also has the added advantage of being completely isolated and had the 11th Hour branding on the external panels that cannot be removed. This unit will be added into the ever growing fleet of power distribution units built by SES that 11th Hour Events have. SES plan to manufacture more units similar to this one ranging from 800A upwards.
