Socomec's smart power – on tour!

Electrical Engineering


New rapid response containerised critical power solution - coming to a location near you.

Socomec UPS has developed a pre-engineered and factory-tested containerised critical power system – the Smart PowerPort – to allow organisations to rapidly respond to unforeseen or urgent requirements for additional critical power. The launch is to be celebrated with a four week tour across nine major European cities.

The system provides future-proofing for mission critical power applications by ramping incremental power capacity – precisely when and where it is needed most.

The energy efficiency - verified by TÜV and Bureau Veritas - and scalability of the Socomec UPS systems within the Smart PowerPort help minimise Power Usage Efficiency (PuE) without high risk capital expenditure. Furthermore, the system is flexible in terms of both sizes and architecture. Supplying from 100 kW to 2.4 MW, the units are completely portable enabling you to build a power support system that can evolve to meet a facility’s changing needs.

Socomec can develop a complete Smart PowerPort turnkey solution for most applications – and the unit is robust enough to be used in both temporary and permanent installations. François Parniere, Market Development Director of Socomec UPS commented, “At Socomec we understand the difficulty that organisations face in planning their critical power needs. The ability to turn on capacity at short notice can be vital when supporting critical facilities and can make the difference between winning and losing a major contract. The Smart PowerPort has been developed with this in mind and provides users with a rapidly deployable and scalable critical power system which can be operational far faster than a conventional bricks and mortar solution. As a market-focused manufacturer with significant R&D capability and a global network of specialist engineers, Socomec is perfectly positioned to deliver new product developments such as the Smart PowerPort - providing the optimum turnkey solution for our customers’ demanding applications. Furthermore, we will work closely with our customers throughout a project – and throughout a product’s lifecycle – to ensure that we deliver the best solution for their precise requirements on an ongoing basis.”

The Smart PowerPort contains Socomec’s highly efficient UPS devices, energy storage, input andoutput distribution panels, fire protection, access control, battery monitoring and a cooling system to ensure system stability and safe power distribution. The units are EN-1047 compliant, dust, fire, water and flood protected, and have thermal insulation of 0.42W/m2K. In addition, the solutions offer 33dB of acoustic insulation as standard. With 20 dB of electromagnetic protection to help overcome any unexpected electrical disturbances, continuous data access and uninterrupted system operation are guaranteed.

Join the Smart Power Tour as the Smart PowerPort travels across Europe - a unique opportunity to take an in-depth look at the unit and its components, as well as to understand how the system could benefit your organisation.

The four-week road-trip starts on 8th March at the Socomec factory in Vicenza, Italy, before moving through Spain and Portugal, and then onto France, the UK and Belgium before concluding in Germany on 2nd April.
