Our busbar systems are available for a wide range of situations and the selection of the most appropriate systems will depend on many factors.

"I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and your people for the great service you have offered MPE recently. The production of the Busbars for the high profile order we had was threatening to become a major issue. However, you kept us well informed and the products delivered were of a very high standard, fitting perfectly on our fabricated items. Needless to say, for any future Busbar requirements of MPE, GKW will be our first contact."

"The GKW installation team, supervised by our Site Manager, executed the task of re-routing the existing busbar system to connect to the new rectifiers. The work involved cutting, re-locating and welding the heavy section busbars before finally terminating the system to the rectifiers"
