UK-based Energetix Group said today its subsidiary Energetix Pnu Power received an order to supply a 10 kiloVolt-amps (kVA) to Spanish-based international infrastructure management company Abertis Infraestructuras, through Pnu Power’s Spanish distributor.
The Energetix Group includes three companies offering what it says are cost-effective products: Pnu Power specializes in compressed-air backup power; Genlec is focused on domestic heat and power; and VPhase is working on home voltage optimization and energy efficiency. The company and its subsidiaries are based near Chester, England.
The new order extends Pnu Power’s product range to cover systems up to 10 kVA with full uninterruptible power supply (UPS) capability, the company said. The order is expected to be used for a trial installation on a Spanish television broadcast system, and could lead to additional sales with Abertis.
“The order further validates our systems as an environmentally friendly and highly reliable alternative to conventional industrial batteries,” said Energetix’s Operations Director Neil Bright, in a news release.
Pnu Power’s backup power technology is already being used in the utility switching, telecommunications, and security sectors, he added.
Abertis—which provides transport and communications infrastructure management in 17 countries across Europe, Africa, and the Americas—picked Pnu Power as an environmentally friendly option for UPS because of its low energy consumption, long installed life, and recyclability, according to the release.
In August, Pnu Power signed a deal to send a compressed-air system to provide backup power to the National Grid’s 275-kiloVolt switchyard in Capenhurst, Cheshire. The trial of Energetix Pnu Power’s system was expected to support relay and circuit breaker switching, which requires high levels of system integrity
