Advanced manufacturing techniques enable us to produce a huge variety of customised busbar systems for major projects. Our team has five decades of experience in busbar design, manufacture, installation and commissioning. We have highly skilled steel, copper and aluminium fabricators with a wealth of experience and knowledge in this specialty.

Our experienced design engineers work directly with customers at the pre-contract stage to achieve the best product and most efficient project outcomes. Invaluable, hands-on experience gained over the years enables GKW to accurately model busbar systems to predict precise performance under all service conditions.

Since GKW are regularly called upon to maintain, install and commission busbar systems, field work is one of our major activities. Integrating the knowledge gained from site work into our designs allows us to offer a complete service to our customers.

Busbar Systems

Our specialist busbar systems are suitable for a range of applications and the selection of the most appropriate systems for a project will depend on many factors. For example, the relationship between operating current and voltage levels will determine what busbar system is required.

Our experienced engineers work with our customers to review in detail their specification requirements to deliver the most effective busbar system for their needs.
