Infrastructure

Powering the backbone of our communities


A robust and resilient infrastructure is essential for a nation’s economic growth, prosperity and development. The essential services we rely on every day – transportation, power, water and sewage, communications, education and governance. UPS systems provide critical, behind the scenes support, to all these functions ensuring they run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Government and defence must function without interruption to ensure a stable society and a military in a permanent state of readiness.

Universities carrying out cutting edge research, often in conjunction with industry or governments, need to be protected from fluctuating power quality or complete power loss to ensure irreplaceable data and research is not compromised.

Broadcasters may have a duty to governments to ensure they are able to transmit during times of crisis in the interest of public safety. This requires robust electrical networks and resilient critical power support systems to ensure the cameras keep rolling.

Adding value to your business
KINOLT understands the importance of maintaining a resilient infrastructure. It’s why we invest in our people, their training and equipment; enabling them to do their job to the highest standards and most efficient way. Avoiding power failure is always our priority.

KINOLT KS® advantages

Modularity_in_Design_icon

Scalable multi-systems

The KINOLT KS® is a resilient and robust dynamic UPS, which can be provided as a single unit or as a parallel redundant system.

Multiple KINOLT units support one of Europe’s largest super computers as it processes metrological data to arrive at global numerical weather predictions (along with other data) which is used by European governments and strategic partners.

Reduce CapEx by splitting loads

Working closely with our clients, KINOLT identifies the most critical functions and loads in each application. Thanks to the KINOLT KS® technology, we can split electrical loads so that the critical elements are isolated from the effects of power outages; whilst non-critical loads may experience short interruptions.

Taking airports as an example; the air traffic control centre, runway lighting and instrument landing systems would naturally be treated as critical loads whilst ventilation and pumping station equipment would be treated as non-critical. This reduces the initial CapEx investment required.

KINOLT systems are supporting key airport hubs around the globe.

Power Conditioning

The KINOLT KS® has an integrated dynamic filter; in conditioning mode, the synchronous alternator combined with the uniquely designed choke coil interfaces with the mains supply filtering out any spikes and transients to the critical load.

One of the world’s largest global media operators relies on 5 MVA of KINOLT equipment to ensure clean power is delivered to its communication centre for both pre-recorded and live broadcasting worldwide

Peak-Shaving

Reducing grid-based energy use at peak times is called peak shaving. Peak shaving can realise financial benefits for an organisation when it coincides with peak demand and therefore peak prices in the wholesale market. Lowering energy usage at peak times can enable you to stay within your contracted maximum demand limit and can allow you to optimise network/tariff costs.

The KINOLT KS® units discharge and recharge kinetic, rather than battery sourced, energy ensuring the savings made are not offset by the increased OpEx associated with shortened battery life.

Voltage_Systems_icon

Medium Voltage KINOLT KS®

When operating multiple systems in parallel a limitation comes from the increasing currents. This can easily be overcome by increasing voltage to 3, 6, 13, or 22 kV, for example.

MV systems are the perfect solution when large distribution distances must be covered. Installation space and costs can be saved by replacing large amounts of low voltage cabling by a medium voltage distribution system.

Subject to your site infrastructure and load requirements, the KINOLT KS® can be designed as a low or medium voltage system.
