CGI and its allies have one of the largest independent Mechanical Engineering teams in the UK. The department is comprised of the Mechanical Design and Stress Analysis Groups consisting of over 100 engineers.

The team provides solutions from full ‘turnkey’ projects to individual component design and analysis. CGI has a proven track record in delivering these services to many blue chip clients such as SSE.

The team operates in a quality assured environment, with state of the art engineering & tools. The supporting Stress Analysis team consists of multi‐disciplined engineering specialists, forming one of the largest stress and structural analysis facilities in the UK. Providing support to the Nuclear, Mechanical and Aerospace sectors, our teams and deliver a comprehensive analysis service including: static & dynamic analysis, fatigue & damage tolerance, finite element analysis, multi body dynamics, composite analysis and pipe stressing.

Power Engineering

CGI and our allies have experience of Design Engineering, Installation and Commissioning of both primary and secondary electrical systems including switchgear, circuit breakers, transformers and protection. Particular capabilities include: In‐house design and engineering / CAD team working on new build and interface engineering projects;

Switchgear and control panel design, procurement and build; Installation and testing capabilities, with a proven track record of new build, integration of new and existing switchgear, protection refurbishments, SF6 handling and testing, fully structured and phased site‐work packages, TP141 commissioning engineers;
Post‐installation services including full commissioning of transformers and substation protection, site demobilisation, service and support.

Site services cover the Installation and Commissioning of transformers, switchgear and protection relay panels for transmission and distribution power systems up to 400kV including gas insulated and open terminal equipment.

Commissioning of Multifunctional IED Relays is carried out utilising the latest computer controlled 3 phase test sets to digitally generate high accuracy test signals.

We can provide engineers who are National Grid competent personnel, capabilities include:

  • Project Management
  • Interface circuit design
  • layout/Space management Design
  • Site Management
  • CDM Application
  • Risk Assessments and Method Statements
  • Installation & Commissioning of substation primary equipment
  • ‘Light current’ wiring modification and installation work
  • Installation, glanding, and termination of multi‐core/pair cable.

Most recently CGI and our allies have branched out into the Panel Build market working for clients such as Scottish Power and National Grid. Our staff are fully trained and equipped to meet the rigorous site safety standards expected.

Our, Control, Electrical and Instrumentation team is centred on a formidable team of dedicated engineers, designers and draughtsmen. This provides our clients with a flexible outsourced solution, capable of delivering complex, challenging, high and low voltage design projects.

The group provides initial concepts, through to production of drawings and documentation, to commissioning and testing.

Control, Electrical and Instrumentation

The Control, Electrical and Instrumentation team includes the provision of designs for Building Services (power, lighting and heating), Motor Control Centres, Switch Rooms, and Process Control including microprocessor systems (PLC).

This includes front end design, detail design, manufacture, optioneering and plant layouts in both Mechanical and Control, Electrical and Instrumentation disciplines, as well as design support during plant installation and commissioning.
