November sees us for the first time at the The Energy Management EMEX show at London’s Excel (11-12 November). On our stand B50 we will be exhibiting the latest digital voltage stabilisers and power factor correction systems from our partner Ortea SpA.
The UK is going through a period of unprecedented change in terms of energy management. Now that we are in the winter period, there are fairly regular news updates on the potential for power cuts. Mostly due to the National Grid using some of its balancing measures to ensure the lights stay on. We do have ageing electrical infrastructure in the UK but a good renewables base from which to draw power. Over the next few years energy storage at grid and distributed levels will become more prevalent and eventually we will become more reliant on nuclear power as new Chinese built power stations come on line.
The Ortea products are more concerned with power protection and energy saving when the mains supply is present. In the UK large-scale energy users can be charged by the District Network Operators (DNOs)/supply companies for Reactive Power. This is a form of power that is required just to keep certain loads energized and is drawn from the grid. Power factor correction systems can be installed to reduce/remove this charge and the Ortea systems are some of the most technically advanced, competitive and reliable available within Europe.
Whilst uninterruptible power supplies are always considered as a first choice power protection device, they are sometimes not as robust for industrial and harsh electrical environments as voltage stabilisers. Ortea is a world leader in voltage stabilization products with systems running from 1kVA to 3MW and larger. In the UK we find applications in the industrial and medical fields where a UPS system simply is too complex or cannot provide the level of mains power protection required. Ortea also supplies their voltage stabilisers as voltage optimisers and we are now one of the UK’s leading voltage optimisers mainainers within the retail sector.
At EcoPowerSupplies we provide a complete range of power protection products. Being part of an NICEIC electrical contracting group gives us a great advantage when it comes to power stabilization and energy saving projects.
