The National Grid power outage last week caused all kinds of problems for commuters, businesses and even hospitals. During the worst blackout seen in the UK in over a decade, extensive travel disruption was caused on our railways and roads and at our airports with around one million homes left without power too.
Rather than being caught out in a power outage, there are some steps that can be taken to ensure you remain operational even on the rare occasions when there is a power cut.
An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) provides emergency backup power instantaneously when the main power source fails or if the voltage drops to an insufficient level or surges and causes an outage.
UPS allows electrical equipment to keep running for a short time, or so that it can be shut down properly by providing additional runtime for up to 15 minutes or longer depending on battery size, in which time a standby power source, such as a generator, can take over.
Even the very best power generators need regular maintenance to guarantee peak performance. Generators need to be serviced by trained engineers to ensure they are serviced correctly. However, between services visits, there are 5 checks you can do onsite to ensure the smooth running of your generator.
As you may have noticed Shenton Group has taken a step back from the big exhibition shows this year. Data Centre World was one that we would often appear at as well as AdBio. But after running some of our own successful events such as the Future M&E event we decided to take a break from the big outfits and put on some of our own exhibitions and attend some more intimate events.
Have you ever wondered how in the event of mains failure Uninterruptible Power Supplies and Standby Generators reinstate power? Read more »
For this project we needed to place two generators in one acoustic plant room enclosure for a Data Centre in Reigate. This was no problem whatsoever for our installation team at shentongroup led by Terry Catlin (Project Manager), we are used to providing whatever our clients ask for.
Official BPA-audited figures had last year’s attendance at an impressive 19,926. Read more »

We at shentongroup install Generators for any industry no matter how complex the project is.
In June we reported on the first six Generators of ten rolling off the production line for this prestigious project. We are now proud to announce that all 10 are now safely on site and await commissioning. These Generators have been installed at a Yorkshire Distribution Centre for a major UK Retailer.
Each of the 10 Generators are capable of producing 550kVA and weigh 5 Tonnes. The delivery and siting of them was carefully managed by our highly skilled Projects and Engineering teams using 5 Articulated Lorries. The sets were split into 2 sites for LV1 and LV2 switch rooms. There will be more to report on this project once it has been commissioned.
We at shentongroup will take on any type of project, large or small. This project involved installing a Generator in a large studio and apartment block in London.
shentongroup has successfully completed a Generator project for a major retail development in South Wales on time and within budget.
We at shentongroup have been involved in many projects for student accommodation blocks so when our client asked us to look after this project we knew we could draw upon years of experience to complete it to a very high standard.
This project consisted of the supply of a new 680kVA, 3 phase, 50 Htz Standby Generator for a major tower development in London. Read more »
