Ensuring continuity of medical power

In June 2020, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave a speech announcing some plans for the nation’s recovery from lockdown and the COVID-19 pandemic. This recovery plan included the availability of funds for the NHS, part of which would support the building of new hospitals. These new buildings would allow healthcare providers to ensure reliable medical power supply from the outset.

Laying the groundwork for rail electrification

Network Rail recently laid out its preliminary plans to decarbonise the rail network, which involved finding alternatives to diesel trains and electrifying more than 7,000 miles of track by 2050. The addition of more electric trains to tracks, alongside greater electrification, will add a new need for robust electrical infrastructure to support the network in a clean and safe way. Here, Steve Hughes, Managing Director of REO UK, explains&nbs...

Sailing on a sea of electricity

We’re taught that electricity and water don’t mix. The truth is they mix very well - far too well, in fact. Electricity travels through water far more efficiently than it can through air, so it’s not hard to imagine the problems that water can cause when it gets into electronics. Here, Steve Hughes, Managing Director of REO UK, covers the challenges modern electronics face on the high seas.
