Cost and availability of electronic products are impacting project deadlines

“Our best-in-class products are at the cutting edge of medium-voltage design and innovation, providing switching, protection, and automation solutions with reliability, safety, and value built-in as standard.
Could you tell us about the unique features of your medium-voltage secondary switchgear?
Lucy Electric is a leader in secondary power distribution solutions with over 100 years of industry experience. Specializing in high-performance medium voltage switchgear for utility, industrial, and commercial applications, we enable the safe and reliable distribution of energy to homes and businesses worldwide.
We also offer unique bespoke engineering, comprehensive warranties, and dedicated after-sales support, meaning that customers get what they need throughout the product lifecycle.
How do you assess whether secondary switchgear for overhead products and package substations is required?
Globally, how energy is generated, distributed, and consumed is changing rapidly. We are entering a new era, driven by rapid infrastructure change, decarbonization of networks, and increasing digitalization. Whatever the challenge, we can help customers find the right solution for their distribution needs.
We can offer a wide range of options that can meet the needs of your network at its different stages of development. Our ring main units (RMUs) are available automation-ready with integrated remote terminal units (RTUs). Designed to be quick and easy to install, they support the right physical infrastructure and the next steps in the automation of your network. The range operates across various networks, including a 36 kV option that has one of the smallest footprints on the market. The variety and flexibility of the range mean we can develop a solution to suit your asset investment plans.
We provide flexible, end-to-end solutions from the initial specification, engineering, build, and contract/project management, through delivery to the site. We provide expert guidance on the engineering and application of an extensive range of products to suit all applications. Our approach is to work collaboratively with our customers and to provide choice, flexibility, and compliance with the latest market standards. Our package substation solutions are available in standard and compact options, and we offer a wide range of options, including third-party, transformer-mounted LV equipment.
In your goods and services, how do you approach efficient network management?


How might low-voltage monitoring aid in the efficient transition to net-zero energy?
Our leading low-voltage monitoring systems can maximise the value of your network data by turning the vast quantities of information available into actionable decisions. Using continuous remote monitoring, you can spot current problems as well as identify at-risk circuits, helping you address faults before they occur while monitoring power quality, losses, and theft. We support data management and analytics. Our secure data centre can manage and
protect data to give you peace of mind.
From identifying system imbalances to understanding the level of losses on parts of the network to monitoring the impact of low-carbon technologies on power quality, we can help make your data more meaningful. Our user-friendly display presents data in clear, simple, and easy-to-read screens, allowing operators to make quicker decisions based on business- and safety-critical information.

Could you elaborate on Lucy’s commitment to sustainability?
As part of the Lucy Group, we recently launched our “People, Planet, Progress” vision on how we work to enable systemic change by engineering intelligent solutions and how we aim to operate as a sustainable business. At Lucy Electric, we are advocates of a meaningful transition to a sustainable future, and we are committed to contributing positively to the needs of society, the environment, and the economy in all locations we are present.
Our People goals ensure healthy lives, promote well-being for all at all ages, ensure inclusive and equitable quality education, and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Our planet’s goals ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all and include urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. Similarly, our future goals will promote sustained inclusive economic growth, build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation.
