MET Printers was in the process of renovating and designing an existing purpose built printing facility in Vancouver, BC which required an electrical upgrade from 500kVA to 1500kVA. With the existing space restrictions, the client would have had to give up a large portion of the printing floor to install the new 1500kVA unit sub, however once the PST MINISUB solution was introduced by PowerSafe, installation could take place in an existing alcove originally designed to house a 500kVA unit substation. Our product offering was able to offer savings to the client as well as a significant amount of real estate, installation and cabling costs .
