The iconic Buckingham Fountain in Chicago's Grant Park has recently been turned on ready for the 2013 season, having been upgraded by power systems and analysis company, Quad Plus, working alongside the JEC and the Chicago Park District.

An iconic landmark in Grant Park, Chicago, the Buckingham Fountain has recently been turned on ready for the 2013 season. Seven year old Kayla Kernan helped to turn on the fountain, which is one of the largest in the world and takes inspiration from the Latona Fountain at the Palace of Versailles.

The opening comes following upgrades carried out over the past year by Chicago power systems and analysis company, Quad Plus, which worked in conjunction with the Chicago Park District and JEC in order to upgrade the field controls for the pump motors that are responsible for creating the fountain's water display.

One of the area's leading power systems companies, Quad Plus has helped to upgrade this landmark so that millions of visitors can continue to enjoy the water display. The fountain operates from April until October, with many visitors flocking to the area to watch the water display during the summer months. The water displays are hugely popular, taking place every hour during the season with each show lasting for around 20 minutes. The evening shows have proven particularly popular, as they are accompanied by music and light displays.

A representative from Quad Plus said: "As one of the leading Chicago power systems companies, we are proud to have played an important role in the upgrade of the Buckingham Fountain, which is one of the area's major landmarks. Our expert power systems staff has worked alongside other agencies and authorities in order to ensure that millions of people will get to continue enjoying this magnificent water display for many years to come."

Quad Plus offers a range of power system services, and as one of the major Chicago power systems companies has worked alongside a number of clients in a range of different environments. This includes industrial plants, utility companies, universities and hospitals amongst others.
