Univolt set sail at latest project win

Dietzel-Univolt has supplied a range of cable containment products to contractor, Blues Electrical via Independent Electrical Supplies, Newport, as part of an £11million new build development at HMS Cambria.

The new HMS Cambria building in Cardiff Bay will deliver state-of-the-art training and education facilities as well as accommodation and office suites alongside social and fitness areas for use by the Royal Naval Reserve, Royal Marines Reserve and University Royal Naval Units.

Blues Electrical will carry out a full Electrical installation at the site which is being managed by main contractor, Morgan Sindall. The firm has opted for the Univolt conduit with an LSF (Low Smoke Flame Retardancy) specification, as well as a range of accessories and our latest product offering, the quick fix wire basket.

Steve Davis, National Business Development Manager at Dietzel-Univolt explained: “It’s fantastic to see a leading contractor such as Blues Electrical opt for our conduit in a LSF specification. Awareness surrounding health and safety in terms of products and applications is growing and contractors are keen to explore safe options that they can recommend to their clients, whilst end users are welcoming innovative and robust measures that they will help them meet their wider objectives.”

Blues Electrical are currently installing the Dietzel-Univolt products across the site.

Marc Gunter of Blues Electrical said: “The choice for us in specifying the LSF conduit was a simple one – it’s a quality product that has strong fire resistant properties and the price difference is nominal compared to a standard uPVC conduit. Given the environment in which the product is being installed, this made perfect sense and the specification has been well received by the end user, the MoD.”

Work is set for completion in March next year when the site will be transformed, becoming the new the centre for Maritime Reservists across the region. The project replaces the existing Cambria building at Penarth and is expected to serve the needs of the forces for the next 50 years.

Steve added: “This is an important building that will become a home to our armed forces in South Wales for this coming half century. It’s great to have been chosen as part of the supply chain, seeing our products selected and specified."
