CENTIEL Launches Rapid Deployment, Containerised UPS Hire Service

Thu 23 May 2024

CENTIEL has announced it now offers short and long-term UPS rentals for data centres needing instant power protection during refurbishment, as well as for hospitals and other facilities requiring immediate, temporary uninterruptible power supply.

“We offer flexible, rapid deployment of our industry-leading UPS solutions from our standalone and modular ranges from 10kW to 1.5MW. We also have containerised modular UPS solutions for larger projects between 50kW and 1.5MW,” said Andrew Skelton, Operations Director at CENTIEL.

Skelton said CENTIEL’s containerised solutions hire includes electrical installation, integral lighting, fire detection and suppression, cooling, batteries and 24/7/365 support with guaranteed site attendance. Skelton said this is suitable as a full ‘plug and play’ emergency option or for facilities needing to back up their existing UPS while refurbishment or other works take place.

CENTIEL’s UPS hire solution can be arranged to suit specific needs at short notice.  Subject to availability, the company currently has two 600kW and one 300kW containerised, flexible UPS solutions ready to deploy within 48 hours, with extra fleet being added.  The containers can be delivered onto suitably rated hard standing areas to suit disaster recovery situations or planned shutdowns.

“The UPS arrive fully tested with batteries already charged. We simply deliver the bespoke containerised UPS solution into position, install the top row of batteries and connect the AC input and output cabling via Powerlock connections so the system is typically up and running within six hours of delivery,” said Skelton.

Routine maintenance is covered by the hire charge for extended hire periods and CENTIEL said its UPS can remain on site for as long as the facility needs critical power protection.  CENTIEL added hiring a UPS may be a tax-efficient way to solve an organisation’s short-term power protection problems as a purchase comes out of Capital Expenditure (CAPEX) whilst a rental can be set against Operational Expenditure (OPEX).

“Our fast deployment UPS, including our containerised solutions, are ready to go.  They are an ideal temporary solution for data centres, hospitals or other facilities needing to provide critical power at short notice or for an economical option to support more planned projects,” added Skelton.
