About

The customer’s outdated legacy HP UPS was no longer viable and as a result began costing the company significant amounts of money to refresh and renew their battery packs coupled with a rapid decline in reliability.

Brief

Critical Power Supplies proposed an Eaton 93PS High Efficiency UPS with extended runtime
which we presented within a comprehensive fixed price turnkey package. As a result the new
system was able to deliver a maintained solution to provide all the features the customer required. It gave the Data Centre added protection in case of failure at any point and allowed batteries to be replaced in years to come without having to switch off the load by utilising the bypass system. The UPS efficiency and reliability coupled with our ability to deliver a turnkey installation and comprehensive project management, allowed us to deliver cost savings through a quick roll-out and integration. Something that traditional procurement methods would not have been able to sustain long-term.

Outcome

The installation was completed in one day, including swift removal of the old system and delivery of the new UPS System. This comprised of new management software which allows easy monitoring and management of the UPS, regardless of the weather or power event. The IT department now have a high efficiency, UPS solution with a 4 hour, 24×7 maintenance contract. The installation is designed to the latest standards in critical power and electrical circuits and the project was delivered on time and within budget. The old UPS solutions were removed and recycled along with the failed legacy, sealed lead acid batteries. When combined with the Eaton award winning virtualisation management software a winning combination was created with higher efficiency, lower energy costs, and peace of mind when having to shutdown virtualised servers if required.
