Wind generation
Onshore Wind Farms

Supporting the switchgear at the wind farm our DC switch trippers ensure reliable and continuous power. The DC system is the backbone of a high-voltage industrial/utility substation. In the event of a power failure, our battery tripping units are on hand to operate the equipment.

Offshore Wind
Offshore Wind Farms

Industrial chargers are indispensable components in utility substations, safeguarding critical systems and contributing to overall reliability and safety. PB Design have provided DC battery tripping units for many of the leading UK offshore wind farms with systems up to 300A in size.


Industrial chargers contribute to this redundancy by ensuring that backup batteries are always charged and ready. In critical situations, having a fully charged battery can prevent system failures and minimise downtime. Hydro electricity is no exception to ensure safe, reliable power.
