D5 - Air Conditioning
All air conditioning installations to the chalets including ‘stand alone’ portable units require a separate electrical supply which must be requested from the Official Electrical Contractor by the Exhibitor or the Exhibitor’s air conditioning Contractor. The Exhibitor or Exhibitors’ air conditioning Contractor will be responsible for the payment of all charges to provide the required electrical supply. The electrical supplies for air conditioning systems to the chalets will be provided by generators independent of other site supplies and will be subject to restricted running hours (See Regulation C10).
The fitting of ‘stand alone’ air conditioning units utilising power from the chalet domestic ring main system is strictly prohibited. The generated supplies for air conditioning will be operational from 0700 hours to 1900 hours on a daily basis from the 09 July until 15 July 2012 inclusive. The generators will remain running on 15 July 2012 until 2200 hours to enable air conditioning units to be degassed in line with environmental regulations. Those contractors who require a supply prior to the above period for testing purposes should contact the Official Electrical Contractor who will arrange a temporary supply, subject to availability.
The Official Electrical Contractor will not be held responsible for any losses should the exhibitor’s contractor connect any equipment other than air conditioning to the generated supply.
The testing and commissioning of any air conditioning prior to the Go Live date in section C10 is not available from the site generators. A temporary commissioning supply and connection from the permanent network is available at an additional cost for commissioning purposes should it be required. Any exhibitor’s equipment connected to a temporary electrical supply or generator provided by the Organisers or official electrical contractor is done so without risk to the Organisers and its contractors. The exhibitor’s main distribution and subsequent equipment should be selected as such that should any loss of phase, neutral or earth conductors occur, the affect on any of the equipment connected will be negligible. The exhibitor should make provision for their own final check that the correct temporary electrical mains supply has been provided in accordance with their request and confirm that all phasing and voltages are correct prior to energising their own equipment. The official electrical contractor accepts no liability for damaged or faulty equipment connected to the system.
