Energus Storage Case Study


Education Hexagonal Workbenches

Based in Cumbria, ENERGUS is the Northwest flagship centre of the National Skills Academy for Nuclear Energy. Officially opened on June 19th 2009 ENERGUS is a world class centre for the provision of vocational skills excellence, spanning both further and higher education for the nuclear industry. The £20 million project has become a beacon of excellence with the Energy Coast initiative.

Working alongside a leading CNC machine tool manufacturer, Polstore Storage Systems, experienced in the design, supply and installation of education storage solutions, were selected to offer a series of specifically designed hexagonal workstations and workbenches which would assist shop floor vocational training.

Each education hexagonal workbench, 11 in total, was made up of six FAMEPLA drawer cabinets, a hexagonal hard-coated grey laminate worktop and a 6-spoke aluminium gantry, suspending batten luminaires.  The 6-sided centre power tower enabled each station to have a compressed air source and isolated light on/off switch. 5 inch swivel base record vices were fixed to each student position with underside vice plates. The workstation design enabled each bench to create 6 individual student locations.

Now with secure, well ordered storage of tools and spares parts, Energus can focus on their main aim – training and educating young people, reskilling workforce and helping local business grow and prosper.

Emco as a company is always happy to work with like-minded, professional companies such as Polstore and we would have no hesitation in working with them again. At the end of the day customer satisfaction is bottom line.
