US backup power provider Ancona Control has selected power-generation and distribution equipment firm Hipower Systems’ generator to ensure uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and backup power for a Michigan-based cable and Internet provider.
Hipower, a Himoinsa Power Systems subsidiary, supplied a 60Hz frequency diesel backup generator to provide power continuity. The company mounted the generator on a 1000-gallon sub-base tank providing more than 60 hours of runtime.
The fuel tank, approved by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, was customised for the harsh conditions and specific codes of Michigan state, with winterisation equipment, external fills, vents and alarms. The generator is part of a complete continuous-power package including DC power through a UPS made by Toshiba.
“In the Midwest, strong storms and power outages are a fact of life nearly year round, and the extreme cold in winter presents a further challenge,” said Hipower systems president Rafael Acosta.
Michigan-based Ancona Controls provides sales and 24/7 service of UPS systems, diesel, natural gas generators and DC power systems for businesses requiring uninterrupted power.
