The Electrical Shop oversees the electrical systems associated with end devices (ie: lighting, recepticles), motor control systems, fire alarms, and central fire monitoring.
For example, London Hydro provides service to the 3 electrical sub-stations on campus. Once on campus, our electricians control electrical distribution between the 55 sub-stations and each of the building terminals. In the event of a partial outage, our staff can re-routed power between the sub-stations.
Facilities Management’s electricians maintain Western's fire/smoke alarms, including repair and replacement.
There are 10 Electricians on our team.
