PCR-R (E-House)
  • Powell has been in the business of integrated electrical enclosure solutions for more than five decades. The solutions offered for the Canadian market required a few modifications in order to optimize the design for the environmental conditions. The Powell PCR-R™ is a rigid frame construction with peaked roof. The true value of this enclosure is our expertise of packaging all of your distribution substation equipment into an integrated and fully functional package delivered complete and ready to install and commission. Advanced preparation allows for a quick turn from delivery to energization.

  • ​The Powell PCR-R™ (eHouse) is, for many applications, the sensible alternative to building on-site. It is more cost effective and significantly reduce construction and installation hassles. Our Power Control Rooms can ship by land, air, or sea and are designed for quick installation on a prepared foundation. The PCR-R arrives tested, complete, and ready to install.

  • ​Powell buildings are designed and built to withstand the most challenging environments. The PCR-R™ (eHouse) consists of a structural steel frame enclosed with pre-insulated metal panels for the walls and roof. All structural aspects of the building are custom engineered to accommodate any and all electrical equipment integrated into the PCR-R (eHouse).

  • ​Integration and the ability to package all the necessary elements into a single working system is the goal and no one can accomplish this like Powell. All Powell manufactured elements along with third-party elements are considered in the design, fabrication, assembly, test, and delivery of your PCR®.

    Consider that it not just the power distribution system that involved. A solid Power Control Room solution may involve safety, structural, environment, control systems, communications, heating and cooling, lighting, building services, personnel entry and egress, interconnection, plumbing, cable entry and exit, future expansion, shipping splits, finish, corrosion control, code compliance, redundancy, shipping preparation, permitting, shipment, delivery, and off loading. These items are not new to Powell experience but can cause jobsite delays if not handled properly. Make sure your project does not face delays and let Powell be your partner.

  • ​When an Integrated Packaged Solution is involved, Powell Project Management demonstrates its value.
