Read on to discover why a generator and UPS are so vital for your business — and how we can help you with UPS hire and rental.

Why Do You Need a Generator and a UPS?

Generators and UPS systems are designed to use as a backup when your original power source is interrupted. However, there is a difference between the two. Generators are used as temporary power sources to keep you operational during a power outage. A generator typically requires mechanical energy in the form of fuel such as kerosene, petrol or diesel.

A UPS is powered by a battery. Designed to automatically provide emergency power when the input power source or mains power fails, or there is a power surge, a UPS can be a literal life-saver. By keeping a system running for long enough, a UPS lets you do a proper shutdown or switch to a generator before any damage can be done.

With a complete UPS rental package, you are assured of a reliable power source whatever happens. And, at the end of the rental period, we’ll decommission and remove the equipment from your site and dispose of it in line with industry regulations.

A Full Turnkey Solution

Critical Power Supplies specialises in providing turnkey solutions, which means we have a team of experts on hand so we can take care of virtually every aspect of your UPS system.

For a recent turnkey UPS project management service, our electrical contracting team worked with a certified UPS installer and NICEIC electrical contractor to supply and install a three phase 100kVA battery solution and switchgear for a period of 10 weeks. Our client was thrilled to benefit from a fully integrated, end-to-end uninterruptible power supply that was compact, scalable and highly efficient. At the end of the hire period, we removed the UPS from their premises.

The services we provide will depend on many circumstances, including whether you’re installing a UPS into an existing or new building or updating an old or outdated UPS. For example, we can arrange to decommission and relocate equipment, transport it to your premises, and install and recommission the equipment at its new destination. Likewise, if you need to get rid of old batteries, generators or UPS systems, we’ll take care of the disposal of old equipment in line with environmental recommendations.

Complete UPS Design and Project Management

When you work with CPS, we want to make sure you are getting precisely what you need — so we provide complete UPS design and project management for all critical applications.

We will conduct a site survey to assess factors such as the best location for the UPS, taking into account space restrictions and access for maintenance, where to place switchgear for maximum benefit, and what equipment you will need.

Our experts make recommendations on exhaust fume extractor from the generator if relevant, the best cooling to prolong battery life and maintain maximum efficiency, and the best type of data coms for both the generator and UPS. Then, when your UPS arrives on-site, we’ll take care of commissioning and testing, see that it is installed safely and in accordance with certified standards, and carry out all necessary checks to ensure optimum operation.
