Hong Kong Service Team Step into Action

Hong Kong is in the middle of an infrastructure boom with the population set to reach 7.78 million by 2025. From rail and road projects to new skyscrapers in the city, Ampcontrol’s Hong Kong based service team have been on hand to support these critical developments and keep things moving amid travel restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Contracted by Siemens to support their customer Chu Kong Transhipment & Logistics Co Ltd, the Ampcontrol service team recently retested and commissioned a Siemens NXPLUS C and GIS Switchgear within the new CKS phase 2A office building in Tuen Mun, Hong Kong.

The scope of this onsite service visit included a visual inspection of the 11kV GIS panels, IDMT test and functional test for 7SR protection relay, 10kV Megger Insulation Test, as well as a range of mechanical tests and checks to ensure safe and reliable operation of the switchboard.

With Ampcontrol’s service team based in country, our agile team has supported a number of projects and customers since international travel restrictions were imposed. Learn more about our range of capabilities across South East Asia here.

Hong Kong Team Perform Maintenance Works in Central-Wan Chai Bypass Tunnel

Ampcontrol’s Hong Kong team were contacted by equipment supplier FILTRONtec to assist with installation and maintenance works on their ultra-modern and efficient Air Purification System (APS) in the Central-Wan Chai Bypass Tunnel on Hong Kong Island.

The FILTRONtec APS is the first high tech system of its kind to be used in a road tunnel in Hong Kong and is the backbone of the ventilation system that provides fresh air to help maintain good air quality for commuters while discharging vitiated air via exhaust points throughout the tunnel.

The scope of these onsite works by Ampcontrol included the installation and maintenance of eight APS systems in the 3.7km long tunnel. The APS can treat up to 1500 m3/s of road tunnel exhaust air and can remove about 80% of the respirable suspended particulates including nitrogen dioxide (NO2), nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen oxide (NOx).

Ampcontrol has agile service teams based in country across South-East Asia, enabling prompt maintenance support where and when it is needed.
