UPS power solution for West Midlands Police, Birmingham
Published on 03 Apr 2021

Energy Power Projects were recently chosen to supply and install a UPS solution for the West Midlands Police server room to provide continuity in the event of mains failure or power loss.

Working with Steane Ltd, a mechanical and Electrical Building Services company, EPP played a key role in the electrical refurbishment of the building in Birmingham.

The following generator was chosen: 

  • Aksa Perkins powered 60kVA 3 phase generator, super silent canopy, Deep Sea DSE6020 control panel & 3-way fuel valves.

The following generator products were also chosen: 

  • Custom built 4” generator exhaust flu extension to Atmosphere.
  • ATI250 250A 3 phase Auto Load Transfer Panel.
  • 100A Manual Transfer Switch to allow temporary generator supply for planned preventative maintenance downtime.
  • UK made 1000L bunded fuel tank with hydrostatic fuel gauge and hydraulic feed & return hoses.
  • 40kVA double online conversion UPS system with 7-minute full-load battery pack.
  • External wrap-around bypass panel.

EPP were able to remove the old generator and the fuel tank which was no longer commissioned to support the power that the police building required. Once the old generator was removed, our team were able to deliver the new tank and related products to site and supported to place it in the plant room.

Steane Ltd were then able to complete the electrical installation and the EPP technical team attended site to install the exhaust system, as well as commissioning, testing and signing off the generator and UPS system.

The customer was delighted with our service, commenting:

‘Energy Power Projects were easy to deal with from start to finish, with excellent communication and good response times to our queries. They helped us specify the correct equipment and supplied and commissioned as requested, even going over and above the normal when there was a small problem with one of the units’.
