Controllix’s Design Versatility Simplifies Multi Site Installation
A large midwestern utility sent an October quote request to Controllix requiring a total of 76 large (6000 and 9000kvar) metal enclosed capacitor banks at 13.8kv. There were 11 equipment designs to accommodate various substation limitations. All 76 units needed to be on site at 36 different substations by the end of the following April. While most competitors felt the order would be split among suppliers, Controllix received the entire order in November. Controllix began shipping equipment in February, averaging seven complete units per week with a final shipment in April. Completing this order in a very short time frame required the coordinated effort of purchasing, engineering, design, inventory, production and shipping. Controllix continues to provide this utility with a number of large capacitor banks every year.
