When its parent company, Scottish and Southern Energy, acquired a 50% stake in Scotia Gas Networks, Southern Electric Contracting was the obvious choice to carry out the refurbishing of the company's mechanical and electrical facilities at its headquarters in Horley, West Sussex. However, when it came to the supply and installation of a power support package to support Scotia Gas Network's electrical supply and IT equipment handling the details of company's 5.7 million customers, Southern Electric Contracting turned to Scorpion Power Systems.

Following an in-depth survey Scorpion suggested the installation of a complete power support package. This included two 60kVA UPS to provide 12 minutes back-up power together with two Scorpion Powerhouse DD172 diesel generators synchronised together to provide an N+1 configuration for greater resilience and controlled through a dual mutual control system and remote monitoring unit. The generators and UPS are housed in a weatherproof and acoustics canopy fitted with outlet louvres and ducting. 

The generators are also fitted with a number of special features to ensure that they are always ready for use and meet all current regulations. These include an on set battery charger and jacket heater to aid cold starting as well a steel bund to retain any diesel spillage and fire shutdown kit.
