Emergency power protection specialist, Computer Power Protection (CPP), provided standby power for these new facilities as well as its CCTV, computers and communications, CPP has installed an integrated power protection solution from Scorpion Power Systems.

Following a survey of the building it was agreed that supporting a critical power protection network would involve the installation of a Scorpion DV 358 three-phase diesel generator. This has been equipped with the capability to self-test each week and an auto dial-out for remote checking.

Mounted within the AMF (Auto Mains Failure) control panel, Scorpion’s Remote Dial Out enables early detection of any problems. The Remote Dial Out monitors the generator and if a fault occurs automatically contacts up to four different numbers in sequence.

Scorpion has fitted the set with a dual water jacket heater to aid cold starting and a steel bund in accordance with the latest environmental regulations to retain any diesel spillage. The generator is also equipped with bespoke attenuation, inlet and outlet louvers and manufactured exhaust system. A Scorpion supplied pumped fuel system completes the installation. The addition of a Powercare Premier maintenance contract has ensured that the standby power system will always be maintained to the highest level and ready to take over and support the load should an power failure occur.
