DTG tees off at St Andrews

We recently installed and commissioned a generator set for The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (R&A) at its new equipment testing centre at Kingsbarns Golf Links near St Andrews.

The FG Wilson P88-3 silent generator with a 125A auto-changeover panel was re-painted to match the surroundings at the development which has been designed in an energy efficient, environmentally sensitive manner. The building incorporates a range of features, such as air source heat pumps, and uses sustainable materials, including an extensive sedum roof that will allow it to sit comfortably in its setting at Kingsbarns.

Utilising the latest technology, the 22,750 sq. ft centre will provide a world-class testing and research facility that will consolidate The R&A’s Equipment Standards department, which is currently spread across three locations. It represents a major investment for The R&A that will enhance its ability to monitor and apply the ‘equipment rules’ on behalf of its 152 affiliated organisations around the world.

Brian Muirie, Sales Director at DTG, said: “We’re delighted to have been involved in the development of this world-class facility. As a trusted partner to some of the UK’s major infrastructure projects, it’s great to be selected again and again for such incredible high profile developments.”
