Case Study: The Search Engine Company

The Client

A major global internet search engine company occupying a prestigious multi-floored building in Central London .

The Challenge

The Client possessed an aging 200kva UPS that had reached end of life. Whilst it was still in operation, spare part support was becoming a challenge and a replacement system was deemed essential to the ongoing operation of the business. The external battery was located on a racking system which was also design life expired. To ensure that the client’s critical load would remain protected, the supply and installation of a replacement system with two new external battery cabinets was required. Advanced Solutions UPS Ltd were contracted to provide a total solution package.

Works were carried out during out of hours with heavy restrictions on both off-loading/loading and movement of men and materials in and around the building. Works were carried out within a 12 hour time window with the load supported without interruption on a bypass supply. Two teams of engineers working early and late shifts ensured a constant project progression. Removal of the old UPS required that it be stripped down for removal from its location due to the 1500kg total weight exceeding the floor loading and the goods lifts.

The Solution

Advanced solutions UPS Ltd remained in good communication with the client leading up to the works and remained flexible to the demands presented due to the location’s restrictions. Our specialist site survey team ensured that our installation team were fully briefed on the challenges they would face on-site allowing them to compete the works safely and efficiently to the clients requirements.

The Outcome

The removal of old equipment and installation of new, complete with full electrical testing and commissioning was completed within the client designated timescale. The client was left confident in the knowledge that Advanced Solutions UPS Ltd had delivered a professional, flexible service and a new, reliable & energy efficient UPS capable of critical power protection for many years to come.
