Utilities: Enhance the resilience of critical infrastructure
Critical Infrastructure Resilience Depends on Targeted Power and Lighting Solutions
The national energy grid is threatened by potential EMPs, cyber attacks, solar storms, and other weather events. Energy infrastructure resilience is critical, so it is essential to have an exceptionally dependable portable, rechargeable AC and DC backup power supply to deliver emergency resources when and where they are needed most.
QuantumCore UPS and BESS
Long Lasting Battery Backup and Energy Storage to Improve Resilience
BlackStarTech uninterruptible power supply (UPS) products provide comprehensive site-wide power during normal operations, while providing your facility with immediate power switchover and reliable coverage in the event of an emergency outage.
The QuantumCore UPS System is completely scalable and utilizes environmentally friendly, long-lasting Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. This creates flexibility for the system to grow with your facility while taking up a much smaller footprint than traditional lead-acid batteries. Additionally, the QuantumCore UPS System features automated preventative battery health and self-diagnostic testing, enabling you to significantly reduce maintenance costs by eliminating costly and resource-intensive battery surveillance.
BlackStarTech’s Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) come in a compact shipping container build and provide customized entire-facility coverage up to 500kW/1000kWh. During an outage, these large-scale systems provide immediate backup power, minimizing downtime and improving overall resilience of critical utilities infrastructure.
Utilizing our QuantumCore UPS and BESS enables your facility to supplement traditional power, cover immediate spikes and drops, and add a new level of resiliency to your switchyards. Achieve resilience with remote monitoring capabilities, greatly reduced maintenance requirements, and a smaller physical and environmental footprint.
