Bench Test Facility Saves the Day (Dec 2006)
 
No1 Property's rigging division - Spectrum, quite literally saves the day.  Given the large quantity of pre-used and second hand equipment in the network the Bench Test Facility in Wellingborough came in very useful for end of year panics concerning equipment integrations.
 
The Facility, which allows the pre-testing of all types of equipment before going into service, highlighted the pre-failures of 12 equipment items destined for the field.  In real terms, these 12 failures would have resulted in lost integrations and aborted days, both of which were mitigated by the early identification of failing parts.
