Utilities companies require backup power solutions that deliver ultimate resilience, reliability and performance.

The utility industry is multidimensional, where there is no 'one system fits all' solution

Consisting of three core sectors gas, electricity and water, the utility industry combines traditional technology with smart technology.

These advancements have inherently made equipment more susceptible to poor power supply quality.

The challenges facing the utility market are extensive - from introducing new energy distribution models, improving efficiency and lowering carbon emissions, to introducing new technologies and processes at a consumer level, enabling users to have more control over their consumption.


Even greater pressure has been placed on the utlity sector as it works to support the UK's ambition net zero target.

These demands contribute to a continuously evolving landscape and advancements to the supporting equipment must be made in tandem. Power availability is absolutely key, and in such a broad market, power protection strategies become extremely complex.

Customised UPS systems that are not only suited for harsh environments but that also comply with industry regulation are crucial for supporting the critical infrastructure.

For over two and a half decades, Power Control has supported the evolving industry, delivering uninterruptible power supply solutions that meet strict specifications and standards including WIMES 3.07

With a full range of customisable power protection systems that meet specific IP ratings, Power Control is expertly placed to specify industrial grade backup power solutions that will not only deliver superior power resilience but also support the rest of the electrical framework.

"The water treatment works had incredibly strict specifications from the offset. Power Control won the work based on its ability to deliver a custom built Borri UPS solutions and its commitment to delivering the installation within a tight timeframe and within stringent budgets."
