Meet The Expert - Jamie Peacock
Hybrid Power Build Supervisor
Tuesday, 25 July 2023
What is your current role, and what are your main responsibilities?
My current role is Hybrid Power Build Supervisor, and my main responsibility is overseeing the ProPower build's production. I teach and train my team members to ensure we are producing the finished product to the highest standards of Prolectric and, most importantly, how our customers expect to receive it.
What does a typical day look like for you?
A typical day for me would start by checking in with my engineering team, making sure each of them is set up and happy with the work that needs to be carried out for that day or the week, depending on the size of the job. I move around the ProPower build factory, assessing each ProPower during the build process and giving help and advice to my team on the best and easiest way to complete tasks.
Working closely with my manager, I organise live commissioning and testing to ensure the ProPower's are working correctly and efficiently so they perform at their best before being delivered to customers. I also work with our Fleet Manager to confirm delivery dates, so I know what needs to be built and tested to meet our delivery deadlines. Working alongside the Site Operations Manager, I help cover servicing and callouts for the ProPower and organise engineers to go out to site or be available when necessary.
What are some of the most exciting projects you have worked on recently?
Working exclusively on the ProPower, I enjoy building these for new customers as it means they are getting onto more worksites across the UK, so more people can see how great they are at saving diesel use and labour costs. I’m looking forward to really getting going with the production of the ProPower 3Phase.
What common misconceptions about your industry would you like to dispel?
The biggest misconception would be how many people cannot believe how much can be saved in rising fuel and material costs by switching to Solar Hybrid Generators from Diesel Powered Generators. Especially since last year when red diesel was no longer permitted for power generation. White diesel has an additional expense of 46.81 pence per litre used, which is shockingly x5 more than before. So why would you not want to reduce fuel, reduce costs and reduce emissions by moving to Solar Hybrid Power?
