Newton Derby Takes Off With ?1.15m RAF Win

Newton Derby
: 21 February, 2009  (Company News)
Leeds-based specialist generator manufacturer Newton Derby has been awarded a £1.15m contract to supply two new generators to RAF Coningsby.
The new generators will be used to support the four Typhoon Squadrons based at the Lincolnshire RAF station. Newton Derby will project manage the contract, which involves some of the leading companies in their field, to provide the specialist services required.



RAF Coningsby has ordered two generators delivering 2MW total load, as well as an acoustically attenuated building enclosure, new fuel supply pipe work, daily use fuel tank, and all associated High Voltage (HV) and Low Voltage (LV) switch gear.



The installation also includes a control and synchronisation panel, step-up transformers and protection. As part of the works a new UPS installation to four squadron buildings are to be provided.



Newton Derby’s sister company, Winder Electrical, will provide the step-up transformers, switchgear and installation. Advanced Diesel Engineering Ltd will supply the diesel generators, sychronisation panel and acoustic enclosure, whilst Andel Ltd will complete the buildings work and install the new fuel pipe line, pumping systems and the day tank.



Although Newton Derby has a rich history of supplying the armed forces, this latest contract marks a successful realignment strategy by the management team, as general manager Stephen Wood explains. “Historically Newton Derby has been synonymous with portable generator units for the armed forces, including ac and dc generators for armoured vehicles, Ground power units and unmanned air vehicles.”



“This latest contract win demonstrates that our technical and project management skills now allow us to successfully manage a much wider range of projects, with the feedback from the RAF that we were awarded the contract on the basis of our excellent technical presentation.”

Following the success of this latest win on the back of continued sales growth, Newton Derby is currently tendering for several other contracts in the defence industry.
