For nearly a century, Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) manufacturer, Socomec has been providing innovative emergency power solutions to ensure the performance of critical electrical installations. Recognised for its cutting-edge technologies, the Police force selected Socomec to provide a UPS system for their purpose-built control centre in Hull.
The centre houses departmental offices, a conference suite, training facilities and specialist services. As with all emergency services environments, any UPS system installed would need to provide complete reliability and the highest levels of protection available.
Working alongside Socomec and SES Engineering Services, the site contractor, Secure Power was enlisted to provide a range of battery services. The project required the provision of a suitable DC/battery system to support the UPS installation. Following a detailed analysis of the client’s needs, Secure Power installed over 800 Exide XP12V3000 batteries (weighing approx. 33kg each).
Over a three week period, Secure Power installed a number of DC panels, four open battery stands and the population of 840 x 12 volt batteries, weighing approximately 30 tonnes in total. All cabling and linking works for the battery installation were also undertaken by Secure Power.
The joint initiative proved extremely successful with both Secure Power and Socomec receiving excellent feedback from all parties onsite; including the contractor and the East Riding facility.
Commenting on behalf of SES Engineering Services, Daniel Cattle said: “The working synergy between Secure Power and Socomec was exceptional. They have a great partnership. Secure Power’s team was efficient and professional at all times. Their depth and breadth of knowledge across the entire electrical path is second to none and proved invaluable to the smooth completion of the project.”
As a trusted UPS distribution partner, Secure Power works closely with Socomec to deliver high quality power continuity solutions and is well versed in Socomec’s back up power technologies. The Socomec UPS portfolio is extensive and includes single and three phase UPS solutions for a wide range of applications and Secure Power’s vast industry experience positions it perfectly to deliver these.
