Power Cable Accessories Supplier ETS Helps Restore Power To West End

Leading power cable accessories supplier ETS Cable Components, and cleat manufacturer, Ellis, pulled out all the stops to help restore power back to the West End after a major underground fire.

Thousands of people had to be evacuated and many theatre performances were cancelled when flames started shooting out from an inspection cover in Holborn on Wednesday 1 April.

Over the Easter Bank holiday weekend, there was a major push to restore power as quickly as possible to the central London electricity network. ETS were called to supply Emperor cleats, support brackets and relevant fixings, which would be used to fix the replacement high voltage cables in place. ETS delivered these items within two hours of receiving the call via their emergency weekend phone service.

Cleat manufacturer – Ellis – then agreed to start production at a moment’s notice, despite the Easter shutdown, to provide additional cleats. ETS then made arrangements to have the finished products delivered to the affected area in Central London promptly, despite the logistics involved with various road closures in place. “We pride ourselves on going the extra mile – this is another example of exceptional teamwork,” said Operations Director Kevin Moloney.

ETS have been supplying power cable accessories for more than 25 years across a range of sectors including rail, renewables, industrial and data centres. You can see all of the ETS cable cleats range by clicking here.
