Trinity Provides Backup Power for Coordinated Electrical Upgrades

Project timelines can be challenging at the best of times. But for projects where multiple large stakeholders have to coordinate their operations, keeping things on schedule can be especially difficult.

Trinity Power offers flexible rental solutions for situations where schedules are likely to change, and a recent project put that flexibility to the test.


The Client: An International Multi-Trade Service Provider

For nearly 100 years, the client, a family-owned, multi-trade service provider has invested in its employees, its clients and its communities.

The result is a thriving international company with over 5,000 employees and 25 offices across North America and Bermuda.

This client provides construction, facilities management and technical expertise for its customers with a commitment to delivering the highest quality solutions.


The Challenge: High Voltage Electrical Upgrades on a Shifting Schedule

Our client was conducting an electrical upgrade at a minimum security institution on Vancouver Island. With phase two nearing completion, they were replacing several high-voltage transformers and primary and secondary conductors, as well as electrical distribution throughout the facility — an undertaking that required multiple shutdowns.

Because each shutdown had to be coordinated with BC Hydro, the project’s schedule was subject to frequent changes. And because the institution was located on an island, the availability of nearby generators and distribution equipment was limited.


Our Approach: Our Power Broker Model Offers a Flexible Solution

Thanks to our extensive network of temporary power vendors, and our own sizeable inventory, we were able to source the equipment the client required, delivering it when it was needed despite fluctuating timelines.

We provided:


The Result: Reliable, Worry-Free Temporary Power

With the Trinity team handling the sourcing and delivery of the temporary power equipment, our client was able to focus on managing the many other aspects of this complex project, knowing they would have power when and where they needed it.
