This new project saw the installation of a PV array meaning all their kit that contains batteries can be kept charged using solar energy. This includes UPS systems, emergency lighting and HyBrids. The facility is insulated and the temperature can be controlled to ensure the battery reliant equipment performs at its optimum levels. The new building will also house our HVAC range and our large stock of cable protection systems including a bespoke cable ramp cleaning system.
Director Jim Creed said that “this new facility was just another step forwards in the evolution of Powerline, coming in our 20th Anniversary year, we are in exciting times”. Tom Gover, head of Cable Ramp at Powerline said he was “delighted with the new systems and facility” and that he felt it “would enhance the quality of the product we hire and deploy”.
With varying minutes of battery run-time, Powerline’s UPS’ offer a relatively long emergency power period, and can be used to protect critical devices. Powerline are continually investing in the latest technology, so as to provide our clients with the very best solution the industry can offer. We are now able to offer remote monitoring solutions for UPS, Hybrid Generator and Generator rentals.
The new facility also provides charging and storage facilities for our emergency lighting. All this is monitored and managed through the new power infrastructure feeding from the solar panels.
Powerline are continually advancing and investing to make sure our clients and events partners are getting reliable and well maintained equipment.
WHY USE A HYBRID GENERATOR?
A Hybrid power generator is a unit containing batteries and an inverter that can produce power at mains voltage. It would generally be connected to a diesel generator that is run for part of the day, with the hybrid supplying the load when the generator is not running.
The most efficient “load profile” for a hybrid power system leading to the largest cost-savings, is an asymmetric load; a fairly large load for a portion of the day, and a smaller load for the remainder of the day.
Essentially the cost savings are made by virtue of the fact that diesel generators are only between 20-30% efficient at converting fuel into electricity (the rest goes to heat, noise, frictional and electrical losses). So if you can double the load on generator, but only run it for half of the time, you have generated the same amount of electricity but you have halved the amount of ‘wasted’ fuel.
The inverter in the hybrid unit is the brain of the system and will monitor loads and
control the generator. The system can also be monitored and controlled remotely via GSM/3G.
