SSuite Office Software Unplugged...


Many people who visit our website and use our free software applications don't realize that we develop our software after hours and in our spare time. We have normal day jobs just like everybody else...

My brother and I work as Electrical Maintenance Contractors. To be more specific, we do new installations and maintenance of heavy mechanical engineering machinery and equipment.


Below is just a short description on one of our projects that we were contracted to do...


In the beginning...

We have just completed the first phase of a construction project in the local industrial area where we live.

Below are the cranes we finished wiring and are hoisting in place at a new engineering workshop.

We still have a long way to go... we have just finished working on four cranes, the other two are not visible in the above shots. We are now waiting for the floor and roof to be finished, there after we need to install and wire all the cables and distribution points inside the workshop.


To follow our whole progress on this massive project, have a look at the below installments that I've created.


Part 2

Below you will see the next stage in the construction of the engineering building we are currently working on.

The roof is up and they are now filling up the floor with concrete and creating the cable trenches...




I will keep you posted as we proceed to install the main cable and switching gear for the electrical distribution.


Part 3

Below you will see the next stage in the construction of the engineering building we are currently working on.

Now that the floor has been done and finished, we were allowed to start installing the workshop bay lights. This must have been the most uncomfortable and scary work I've done in a long time... check this out!   Nearly 40 feet of pure death waiting for me at the bottom...



It took us exactly 5 days to wire and install 60 high-bay lights into the two workshop bays, but we finally finished and all the lights were switched on to make sure it all worked.

Part 4

Below you will see the next stage in the construction of the engineering building we are currently working on.

All the cables have been delivered and we are currently busy installing them. There are thin cables and then there are some major ones waiting for use to be dragged into place thru-out the engineering workshop. The really thick cables will be left for last, as they are the main incoming power cables.



Today we have dragged into place 500 meters of 16mm² cable and installed five 80A welding plugs, 450 meters of 2.5mm²  cable with seven  ordinary 220V plugs.


Many more cable dragging and installation awaits us next week.


Part 5

Below you will see the next stage in the construction of the engineering building we are currently working on.

We have finally finished dragging in all the main cables and have also completed the wiring of the two main distribution boards in the engineering workshops. Below you will see the two main boards including the primary change-over switch for the diesel generator.{we suffer from severe rolling black-outs}.


  


Finaly, The End of the Project...

Below are the final screenshots of the engineering building we were contracted to electrify and wire some time ago. We have finally finished this building with the last two outside flood-lights being installed and connected.


   

   


The first image, starting from the top-left, is me wiring up the engineering shop's backup-generator. Our country's national electricity infrastructure is on the verge of collapse, which means we suffer from a lot of brown-outs. The second image is my father wiring the main office's air-conditioners. The third image is the outside flood-lights that we just installed and connected.

The last image is me wiring the Day-Night light switch for the outside flood lights. We have finally finished the engineering shop. For those who are wondering who took the photos... that would be my brother Marius{ also holding and cracking the whip as we work }.
