Providing a battery-based power source for off-peak/night-time energy and lighting requirements in compound offices, canteen and IT servers.
For green-field compounds there are generally long lead-in times for connection to the grid and strict planning rules regarding suitable forms of renewable energy e.g. wind turbines. This means that in many circumstances generators are the only available option to provide a sufficient power source for compound and site office energy, security and lighting requirements. Current environmental concerns with this power source include:
Faced with increasing client requirements for considerate use of energy and the fact that fuel costs are a major component of our cost of doing business, the Roadbridge Plant Department came up with an in-house developed solution.
We converted an existing 20ft steel container – installing a 60kVA generator, 5000W invertor and a bank of batteries.
During normal day-time operations, the bank of batteries is re-charged by the normal running of the generator, through the 5000W power inverter.
