Where space and costs are a significant factor, continuous power supplies do not necessarily have to be compromised. For Klarity Vision, a Peterborough-based professional business and tax solutions specialist, a permanent generator set was unsuitable. The company turned to shentongroup which now provides its Power Call Generator Rental service, guaranteeing that Klarity Vision receives ‘power within the hour’ in the event of mains power failures.
Mains power supplies are an increasingly less reliable resource for scores of organisations throughout the country. With the lowest levels of National Grid reserve power in recent years, it’s no wonder that more and more businesses whose service levels rely on continuous power supplies are now considering their standby power strategies.
For organisations operating within the finance sector, customer services, and data provision and integrity depend wholly on reliable and continuous power. Providing a large portfolio of clients with book keeping, accounts, audits, tax planning and tax return preparation services, for Klarity Vision, the prospect of brownouts and blackouts equates to a serious compromise of it’s services, especially at peak times of the year, such as the January tax returns period. Therefore, the company turned to shentongroup to secure the most suitable continuous power solution.
However, as well as the obvious high expenditure of investing in a permanent generator set, another significant factor related to the company’s ownership of space around their building premises. This meant that permission to install a permanent standby generator would be very difficult to achieve.
Shenton Group Managing Director, Jody Meek, detailed the options available to Klarity Vision: “The cost of an installed generator set can be relatively high. A realistic budget for a permanently installed automatic generator is £230 per KW. This means that, if the maximum demand on your building is 100KW, then the costs will be around £23,000”. Jody added: “Therefore, considering Klarity Vision’s space limitations and that fact that their business can sustain a short period of time with no power, shentongroup’s Power Call emergency generator rental service was the most logical and viable solution”.
Shaun Crozier of Klarity Vision comments: “We chose Power Call to save the upfront costs of a permanent standby generator”.
Shenton Group’s Jody Meek continued: “The costs of an emergency power supply are significantly lower and a system can usually be up and running within just a few weeks, subject to site survey. Klarity Vision’s power requirement was to provide a consistent 100amp supply to the office, situated on an out of town business park. So once the initial installation of weatherproof plug and socket was positioned on the most accessible part of Klarity Vision’s building, with depots throughout the UK, shentongroup’s Power Call will now ensure that a backup generator will be onsite and operational within the hour. Guaranteed within three hours or your money back, Power Call’s record to date is just 23 minutes”.
Klarity Vision now has the assurance of emergency power generator access 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. As part of its Power Call contract, the company has unlimited access to as many emergency callouts as are needed, for no extra cost.
Klarity Vision’s Shaun Crozier concluded: “…the installation went smoothly. Lack of power would have a big impact on the business, especially during peak periods, such as January”.
