Wave International was consulted about how to rectify power factor problems resulting from large direct online (DOL) starting electric motors that were causing excessive charges from the utility company.

The project involved the design and procurement of an 11kV capacitor bank that would bring the power factor to around unity. Under the design phase, the control system integrations gave the client remote accessibility and control.

Wave also commissioned the Power Factor Correction (PFC) unit on site to ensure that the product delivered was of a high standard, on budget and correctly documented.
