The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Britain hailed Bowers’ service as “impressive” and “excellent” after the team helped to tackle voltage stability issues at the charity’s printing premises in Nigeria.
Bowers’ in-house team of designers designed and manufactured a bespoke 2500kVA transformer for Watch Tower, with the capability to stabilise the incoming voltage via a sophisticated on-load tap changer and boost the power by up to 40%. Steve Abbott, the charity’s UK-based purchasing manager, said he’d been impressed by Bowers’ approach. “Our requirement for an exceptionally large 40% boost capacity, along with some special tap changer control features, called for a special set of functional tests and we were particularly impressed with the team’s willingness to allow our engineers to work alongside Bowers’ engineering staff in performing tests to our satisfaction at the electrical test facility.”
Established in 1947, and managed day to day by the Bowers family, the business sends its products across the world, as well as powering a greener Great Britain with a new ecodesign range that uses the latest in technological advances and materials to offer the greatest savings to date.
Michael Bowers, the managing director of the award-winning company, said: “We’ve prided ourselves on being at the forefront of energy-saving for many years and demand for our products is at an all-time high thanks to an ever-increasing desire to cut carbon emissions. one of our assets is the in-house capability to design and build bespoke solutions for situations just like Watch towers. I’m thrilled that our standards of customer service and attention to detail have been recognised – even when dealing with a client 5,000 miles away.”
