Powerhire were recently contacted by a worldwide rotary UPS Company for the provision of Loadbank testing to commission additional MVA of rotary UPS for an expanding manufacturing plant of a leading technology Company.

This Company is a world-class Nasdaq-100 technology company with 45,000 employees in more than 35 countries. As the world leader in secure connectivity solutions for embedded applications, this Company is driving innovation in the secure connected vehicle, end-to-end security & privacy and smart connected solutions markets.

Their Northern UK based factory which manufactures their semiconductors, renowned as the most proficient and reliable on the market, have expanded their site due to the superiority of their product. It would therefore be unthinkable for the manufacturing process to ever incur any loss of power in the event of a power outage or mains failure to the factory which is why they have 6MVA of rotary UPS at the site providing a clean uninterrupted source of power.

Before the equipment went to site Powerhire’s technical team due to carry out the commissioning had previously liaised with the UPS company to establish the exact requirements and had agreed the equipment necessary and the commissioning set up.

On the scheduled date the logistics team delivered a 2.5MVA loadbank, a 20ft containerised switch room , LV cables and a small generator as ancillary power together with fuel tanks and heras fencing for safe containment. Powerhire’s technical team connected the system up as previously discussed and the newly installed 2MVA rotary UPS was successfully commissioned at LV.

On a separately agreed date Powerhire delivered an additional 11kv step down transformer together with HV cables and we appointed a specialist HV engineer who added to and reconfigured the LV set up to HV to commission the full complement of site rotary UPS’s proving effective synchronisation of all units at the desired load.
