Sectors who rely upon continuous power and simply cannot afford to have a power outage include Healthcare, Military, Telecoms and Finance. Fortunately, there is a solution for all of them and that is an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
A UPS system will support your equipment until your generator takes over, or the mains supply is restored, meaning no drop in power and no harm done.
Throughout our 38 years of trading, Shenton Group has installed uninterruptible power systems for a variety of clients working across an array of industries. The one common denominator is that they are looking for expertise in continuous power.
What is an Uninterruptible Power Supply?
An uninterruptible power supply provides instantaneous backup power during a loss of power supply. Computers or equipment can then be shut down safely, or switched over to power supplied by a generator.
Protecting Power Supplies in the Healthcare Industry
Operating theatres and essential hospital equipment require the support of a UPS to ensure there is no drop in power in the event of mains power failure.
Without the protection that a UPS provides, lifesaving operations would be put in jeopardy, scheduled scans of patients would be brought to a halt and treatment of sick patients delayed. Power solutions for healthcare facilities must also adhere to strict and specific regulations, which is especially important for operating theatres and hospital scanning equipment.

Business Continuity in the Finance Sector
All financial organisations require continuous power to ensure that all business systems remain operational in the event of a mains power failure. The financial sector is reliant on huge levels of computing power to trade, react to the markets and to provide customers with access to their personal information and banking details around the clock.
Finance is a sensitive sector with an emphasis on minimal downtime as even the smallest technical hitch can disrupt thousands of daily customers and any damage to hardware could potentially result in data loss. Financial companies need to keep data secure as a priority. Any power issues could potentially lead to a loss of business as doubts may creep in around a financial institutions ability safeguard personal data.
At Shenton Group, we support financial clients such as the Bank of Cyprus UK, with an uninterruptible power supply to ensure they can continue to function at all times ensuring their security, lighting, communications, customer services and data integrity are all protected.
Eliminating Risk in Telecoms
While backup power is essential for the world of telecoms, it is an industry that also requires clean and reliable power. UPS systems not only ensure around-the-clock power, but they also protect expensive equipment from any fluctuations that can cause outages and damage equipment. A UPS system will reduce risk levels and loss of income and ensure you can provide a reliable service 24/7.
Over the decades, we have helped numerous telecoms companies of varying sizes, and have experience in the construction of a large scale continuous power projects.
Safeguarding the Military from Power Outages
The military often operates out of remote locations where a continuous power supply can be difficult to secure. It would be unthinkable for the military to be without power for their communications and facilities, as this could have massive consequences for national security.
We pride ourselves in ensuring MOD have a secure and consistent power supply. Since an original back-up power installation off the coast of Portsmouth, our trained engineers have maintained their 22 UPS systems, some of which sit in a remote location only accessible by boat.
For the military or any government facility, there is never a time when a power outage is acceptable, which is why a reliable UPS system is pivotal.
Other Sectors That Need Continuous Power
Aside from the four sectors, we have outlined, UPS systems can be essential for other sectors where uninterrupted power is required.
Power is vital in the world of security, meaning that CCTV, access control, alarms and motion sensors remain up and running to protect premises throughout the UK.
A prison, for example, is a prime example where power is paramount in the interest of security to ensure automated doors, key control systems and the like remain watertight for the safety of both inmates and prison staff.
Sports Stadiums and Event Venues
Major sporting events, leisure complexes, cinemas and festivals all use vast amounts of power for equipment and lighting, without this, there could be huge financial losses to cover. A resilient power solution is crucial to cover everything from lighting, broadcasting equipment, CCTV and everything in between. Having a reliable contingency power solution will ensure the show goes on without a hitch.
