Altana AG choose SPS for their new APC UPS System

Altana AG

Altana AG

SPS were chosen by Altana to design and install a new 3 phase modular UPS system. The system needed careful consideration due to limited floor space and zero tolerance for any downtime.

We specified and installed an APC 30KVA VT System (SUVTR30KH4B5S) to maximize floor space and to replace the existing “ad-hoc” rack UPS systems. The new consolidated system increased power availability whilst decreasing the overall footprint of the UPS, freeing up valuable rack space.

Moreover, we installed new three-phase power distribution throughout the IT suite to consolidate and simplify the mission critical power. UPS power was distributed within the racks using “zero U” APC PDU’s to enable simple migration from legacy UPS to new APC Solution.

It’s That Time of Year Again!!

The mornings are darker and the nights are drawing in. Amongst other things, it’s time to start thinking about the external lighting around your facility.

Some things to consider: –

• Do all the lights work?
• Are they energy efficient?
• Are they being controlled properly? e.g. “on” in daylight hours
• Is the lighting adequate?

If you answered “No” to any of the above you could benefit from our “Free” lighting & energy survey. We aim to maximise efficiency and minimise waste. We can advise on alternative lamps and fittings so that you can benefit from: –

• Energy savings – Higher efficiency lamps and fittings
• Prolonged life expectancy of lamps & equipment
• Properly managed controls and settings
• Reduced maintenance costs – fewer re-lamping visits

We hope our “FREE” survey will be of interest, however in the meantime should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us, we hope you will consider us as a viable option for future contracts and work.
