Because Safe Water Isn't Optional
The Power of Clean Water
Most citizens in North America take clean water for granted, but in the event of a power outage, nothing is certain. Many major municipalities rely on cleaning or treatment systems to render their drinking water safe, and these systems are powered by electricity.
Standby generators are the necessary solution to ensure drinking water continues to flow—and waste is able to be processed—in communities that experience a power outage. Cities from New York to Houston have discovered the health and safety issues of having water and sewer systems go down. In many locations, backup generators are now mandated for water and waste treatment plants, but tight budgets are making acquisition difficult.
As municipalities in the U.S. and Canada continue to enhance their emergency response systems with backup generators for water treatment facilities, HIPOWER SYSTEMS is working to ensure they have affordable access to the most reliable, efficient generators available.
Water Treatment Backup Power Generators for Load Distribution
Water treatment backup power generators can function permanently or intermittently in a facility. Either way, it isn't merely a sitting asset that's only used as part of an emergency response system. This is because a generator can be used to offset the power supply needed to continue operations through peak shaving.
During the peak season of summer, especially the hours of mid-afternoon, having two generators to aid in load distribution can increase the overall power efficiency of a facility. One generator can be run all day to cover the needs of a pumping station while another generator handles the balance of the plant's load. In short, generators can be used to lower a facility's energy consumption aside from providing backup power during natural disasters.
Additionally, as part of an effective emergency response system, old backup power generators should be replaced or upgraded for new and more energy-efficient models. Any generator found to be underpowered or undersized will likewise do a poor job in producing electricity during power outages or grid failures. This may be due to a number of reasons such as the equipment having reached the end of its lifetime because of mechanical and electrical stresses, or the operational requirements of a water treatment facility has changed beyond its output capacity. Nevertheless, backup power generator maintenance is just as important when it comes to emergency and disaster response planning.
Here at HIPOWER SYSTEMS, we provide state-of-the-art Water treatment backup power generators in cases of power loss and disrupted water services. Our team of highly skilled engineers and trained technicians can evaluate the electrical infrastructure of different water treatment facilities to provide systematic, energy-efficient, and cost-effective power generation solutions.
Because safe and clean water is a basic necessity, consistent operations must never be compromised. Contact us today for inquiries or technical information regarding our backup power generators. You may reach us through any of the contact details provided on our website.
