The Manufacturer recently discussed how manufacturers can protect their power supply. With the uptake of digital technology, the government’s upcoming Industrial Strategy and a strong export demand should all equate to an expanding manufacturing sector in the UK.
The increase in demand, however, will logically add pressure to UK power supply, meaning that having a robust power infrastructure in place has never been so important. Electricity downtime, not only poses risks to lives and services, but the financial costs can be phenomenal. Some statistics show that just one unplanned event can cost in the region of £1.6m. The Manufacturer also states that the UK is reported to be the worst performing economy in Europe in relation to productivity, and therefore, keeping downtime to a minimum should be a critical requirement if the country is to improve upon this.
Power failures in large-scale manufacturing plants can result in disastrous falls in productivity, but can be wholly avoided with the adoption of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) solutions. A UPS provides instantaneous power and a supply for long enough to allow for safe data backup and shutdown, or a smooth transition to backup generators. With 45% of blackouts occurring due to voltage disturbances, a UPS is a vital solution to remedy any power problems.
As suppliers of Riello UPS systems, shentongroup has also launched Power Go: the first true consumer-focussed integrated solution for uninterruptible power, energy storage, energy efficiency and automated energy asset synchronisation and optimisation.
The investment in UPS outweighs the potential loss in bottom line every time, so to secure your organisation’s continuous power, click here to speak to a member of the shentongroup team: The UK’s Leading Technical Experts in Standby Power, Uninterruptible Power Supplies and Combined Heat & Power Systems.
