Installing Customised Meters and Enclosures at Medway Marina
On Thursday, we went to Medway Marina, and set out to replace very outdated meters which were no longer compliant to current regulations. We installed a new Smart Pre-payment system, using EML-TU meters. These were then installed into existing bollards which had housed the older meters.
Andy Noble, our celebrated workshop manager, realised that the existing posts where the meters would need to go did not have enough space to fit the new metal brackets that the meters would be housed in.
Overcoming the issues with Space
Andy drafted up a plan to find a way to fit the meters into the area where it needed to go. Because there were obstacles in the available areas, Andy designed the new brackets with cut outs to accommodate for this. He also customised the metal bracket so it was deeper than the original one, ensuring a better fit.

Savings and a Good Result !
This has resulted in huge savings for the client, as they were replacing many meters. Had they had to purchase new bollards to mount the new meters, it would have cost around £1500 several times over. PJW’s new redesign allowed them to fit the new meters which could now be installed in the areas as originally planned. For the Client, and for us, a great result all around !
