Pop Up Power Supplies® helps to provide a safe and efficient outdoor power supply to Aberdeen University

18 Apr 2017
Case study

Pop Up Power Supplies® were approached by Aberdeen University when they required an outdoor power supply for lawn areas within the campus.

Part of the Old Aberdeen Campus, King’s College is considered the symbolic centre of the ever-expanding university.  Pop Up Power Supplies® offered their range of electrical feeder pillars to provide an effective outdoor power supply, and were installed in the outside lawn areas by The Kings College Chapel and Elphinstone Hall.  The units provide a safe and secure outdoor power supply to marquees used for weddings and corporate events.

George Parker, Director of Pop Up Power Supplies® commented, “Aberdeen University is famous for its beautiful architecture and because of this they didn’t want power units around the campus being a permanent feature.  Our pop up units were recommended as they provide the necessary outdoor power supply for their sporting events, and when they aren’t in use they are simply retracted into the ground by turning a handle.”

The pop up electric sockets are constructed using stainless steel and concrete and have a total weight of 450kg each.  The cover units are made of stainless steel AISI304 and offer substantial protection to the power units when they are fully retracted.
