All defense sites have critical power requirements and most will ensure that they are able to run independently from the grid by having their own power generation
Parkinson Spencer Refractories achieved protection from Power Disruptions, a 5% reduction in Energy Costs and extra revenue through GridBeyond with a BESS
The Guaranteed savings was exceeded and Viking Fishing South Africa saved 9% on their Energy bills with Voltage Optimisation
Voltage Optimisation helped this company save almost 20% on their annual energy costs and removed 17.7 tonnes of CO2 emissions yearly.
Powerstar were engaged to replace a large hospital’s existing Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system with a more efficient, intelligent Battery Energy Storage (BESS) alternative.
Powerstar was commissioned to replace the site’s ageing transformer with modern, low-loss replacements, that incorporated voltage optimisation technology to provide more stable voltages across the site.
