With just-in-time stock management systems and high value chilled and frozen stock, there is very little margin for error when it comes to continuous power across the supermarket sector. A leading German supermarket chain understands this only too well and for one of its large distribution centres, it enlisted shentongroup to provide a Standby Generator solution to guarantee 24/7 business continuity in the face of mains power failure.

20180501_095118As well as security, lighting and air-con demands, the distribution centre houses hundreds of power-critical chillers and freezer units, all of which must be sustained in the event of any power outage. A short temporary downtime would result in thousands of pounds of frozen produce going to waste, causing problems that would ripple up and down the company’s supply chain. Therefore, shentongroup provided a very capable 3 mVA Standby Generator solution that performs well in the LV (Low Voltage) range.
