Containerised UPS solution delivers site specific power solution

April 03, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Riello UPS has launched a new containerised solution, called PowerBox, which provides critical systems with a site specific power solution. The system can be deployed and installed wherever and whenever needed, with minimal impact on a plant room.

Each PowerBox contains all of the necessary switchgear and distribution panels to deliver uninterruptible power from a combination power solution. This can include: a Riello UPS, flywheel energy storage system, battery packs and suitably rated generator.

PowerBox provides a robust, highly resilient power solution with zero downtime and is easily installed with components within a ‘stand-alone’ 20-foot or 40-foot container.

General Manager of Riello UPS, Robin Koffler said: “One of the main reasons the PowerBox solution was created was so that you no longer need dedicated space in your data centre facility or plant room for UPS. This allows for more of the building to be used for critical IT infrastructure. This is especially useful on brownfield sites where space may be limited.”

“Containerised power solutions meet Riello’s stringent requirements for eco-friendly power protection systems as their high operating efficiency saves energy and reduces operating costs.”

Containerised power solutions are available for short-term hire to allow clients to perform their own onsite tests prior to purchase or provide clean, resilient power for a specific event or project.

Riello PowerBox is a resilient power solution for modular data centers requiring a scalable power system; city data centre sites requiring additional power; public events requiring reliable additional short-term power as well as military and remote communications installations.
