We know that creating your own path is important to your personal growth and development.
At Dale Power Solutions we know that creating your own path is important to your personal growth and development. We therefore expose our apprentices to a rotational program where you get to see where your strengths lie and how we can help you to improve whilst contributing to the company.
In today’s world, the generators, power storage and maintenance programmes you put in place can make or break your business, and that of your clients too. Regardless of whether the origin is a short or long interruption, a voltage dip, a transient or other voltage disturbance, power interruptions can cause power outages, with serious consequences. Interruption duration is also important, as is the frequency of power quality issues and the impact they have on your company’s ability to operate effectively. In fact, it’s estimated that power quality problems across industry and commerce cost the EU approximately 10 billion per annum, while expenditure on preventive measures would cost less than 5% of this. Any malfunction or wear and tear to your UPS, diesel generator or power source components reduces your power availability, and therefore, regular checks can help to identify any faults and prevent any potential issues, while also allowing us to provide recommendations on new products and services that can expand your capabilities no end.
From maintenance, OFTEC Inspection Solutions and support with the Accelerated Loss of Mains Change Programme (ALoMCP) through to remote monitoring, grid resilience, fuel management and site surveys, we offer clients a range of power services to help them meet their business requirements – regardless of whether they operate within the healthcare, utilities, telecommunications or data driven industries.

OFTEC Inspection Solutions
OFTEC (Oil Firing Technical Association) is the industry body that governs the assessment and certification of fuel storage and associated pipework. Fully up-to-date with the legislation surrounding fuel storage and the management and maintenance of systems, our qualified engineers can carry out your OFTEC Inspection, reducing the risks and associated penalties, should you fail to comply.
From tank inspections and bund inspections through to fuel line pressure tests and fire protection, here at Dale Power Solutions, we can do it all. We can offer scheduled inspections, issue compliance reports which recommend actions to get your site in line with current legislation, and offer advice on generators and UPS. Regular inspections and planned maintenance can greatly impact your power site and prevent catastrophic events. We can also provide costings for any works required, and together, create and deliver a solution that you can depend on.
The Accelerated Loss of Mains Change Programme (ALoMCP) is an industry-wide project run by the National Grid and Network Operators (DNOs). It’s main goal is to update Loss of Mains (LoM) protection for renewable electricity generators such as wind turbines, hydro schemes and solar photovoltaics, to reduce the risks of needless tripping and loss of energy supply. Previously, these generators have been fitted with RoCoF or Vector Shift (VS) relays, which trip in response to transmission faults, or in RoCoF’s case, when sensing rates of frequency change as low as 0.125 Hzs-1. Because this can lead to Low Frequency Demand Disconnection and unnecessary loss of demand, the ALoMCP aims to supply operators with new relays and systems under the new G99 rules, and offers the following grants:
- Up to £1,500 where protection function/relay deactivation and/or protection settings change is required.
- Up to £4,000 where a protection relay replacement is required.
These payments operate on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis, and the funding is also time-sensitive. We therefore recommend acting fast, because the initial cost vs. funding claim could potentially work out as being FREE. From surveying your site to supplying and installing the correct products, we can help you with the full service solution, getting your generators up to code in no time at all.
Installation & Commissioning
From the configuration of your equipment before its dispatched through to onsite installation and optimisation, we provide our clients with an extensive installation and commissioning service for diesel generators, UPS and gas turbines. Our service engineers can work alone on your project, or alongside your plant engineering staff to enable that all-important knowledge transfer – whichever you prefer. With safety at the forefront, all of our works are commissioned on time and with minimal disruption to your site and business.
Our process is comprehensive, yet essential. We’ll conduct a complete site assessment including access, space and floor loadings. We’ll then organise delivery and placement of your power system, arranging special lifting and carnage if required. We can take care of all the electrical and mechanical work too, but we don’t just leave it there.
During the commissioning stage, our engineers will test the complete power protection systems operation to ensure that your system is correctly tuned to provide you with maximum efficiency of your plants’ operation. Our service engineers will work in accordance with factory issued commissioning procedures and written method statements.
No matter where your site is situated, our team is on hand 24/7 ready to commission your generator as per your requirements.
Remote monitoring is designed to ensure your site’s critical load is protected by dedicated, trained personnel, even when your facility is unmanned. A fast and reliable maintenance service is the best solution to maintain high system availability for the entire life cycle, and here at Dale Power Solutions, we can monitor multiple systems, alarms, fault signals and fuel systems allowing us to act fast should we need to.
Our remote monitoring process starts with your UPS being fitted with an SNMP (Simple Network Management Portal) card, which, when installed, communicates to the hosts UPS, extracting information from the UPS that allows it to be remotely monitored. Our servers will always monitor your UPS and record all essential data and specified alarms. Any alarm that is produced is immediately evaluated within our system which then transmits an alarm notification to your designated company contact via email. Our service team is notified and will analyse the data, and if required a service engineer will be dispatched to take care of any faults.
We provide a 24/7 nationwide remote monitoring service – keeping your power in safe hands.
Your diesel engine needs pure, clean diesel fuel for efficient and dependable running. The tolerances and high fuel injection pressures of today’s diesel fuel systems mean they are very sensitive to any fuel quality problems or contamination. Fuel contaminants can spell real trouble for engines, generators and pumps, and therefore it’s imperative that you have a fuel management process in place to prevent this in the first place.
At Dale Power Solutions, we can offer:
- Sampling & Testing: To access fuel cleanliness and fuel quality, we can provide the necessary equipment to carry out tests and send the results off to be analysed.
- Fuel Treatment: From filtering your fuel stock to adding fuel additives, we’ll work with you to identify the best possible solution for your fuel treatment.
- Fuel Storage & Handling: From tank cleaning and testing through to repair and replacement, we can offer guidance on how to reduce the risk of contamination through fuel storage and handling best practices.
- Fuel Maintenance: To ensure that your fuel remains in prime condition all year round we provide fuel polishing systems which provide cycled polishing and easy access statistics on your fuel.
Site surveys are essential for ensuring that the installation, upgrading and maintenance of your power solutions goes as smoothly as possible. All of our site surveys are carried out by specially trained critical power specialists with much experience working on generator installation, operation and maintenance, and typically last 2 hours at most. Our site surveys include:
- Assessment of the load size and electrical profile of your site.
- Analysis of any known power quality issues, and what’s causing them.
- Review of the physical location and environmental considerations.
- Planning of the delivery route and logistics.
- Discussion of generator supply and storage.
- Discussion of ongoing maintenance and technical support requirements.
- Creation of a general program of works and preferred installation time frame.
- Consideration of any existing UPS, generator and battery installation for trade-in and recycling.
- Discussion of additional works, such as load bank testing and temporary power supplies.
