Secure Power provides quality generator solutions from reputable world leading manufacturers, such as JCB, Scania, Volvo, MTU, Cummins and many others.
Whilst UPS are essential for conditioning incoming power to protect sensitive electrical equipment, in the event of a utility mains failure a UPS is only designed to provide short-term emergency power, usually just enough time to orchestrate a graceful system shutdown. However, many key industries (such as banking, healthcare and data centres) rely on 24/7 operation, meaning a graceful shutdown in the event of power disruptions is not an option. So, what happens in the event of a prolonged power outage? – This is where Standby Generators come in.
If designed correctly, and installed alongside a suitable UPS solution, a standby generator can offer indefinite emergency backup power should your grid electricity supply fail. When mains power fails, the UPS batteries will instantly take over and “bridge the gap” whilst the generator starts up and reaches synchronisation. Once up to speed, the generator will take over and the UPS will return to “normal” mode. The UPS will then continue to condition the fluctuations in voltage/frequency that can occur whilst running on generator power, to ensure sensitive critical equipment remains protected.
There are many factors to consider when designing the optimum standby generator package for your business. From the physical sizing of the generator and integration with existing electrical infrastructure, to ongoing preventive maintenance and fuel management. Secure Power offer a full turn-key generator solution, from initial design consultation to annual proactive maintenance and support packages.

A generator is an excellent choice to accompany your UPS, as it provides extended power runtime for critical building application such as IT systems. UPS are typically used for providing clean power to electronic equipment and prolonging their lifespan. In the event of a blackout, UPS only provide power for a short period of time. For this reason, a generator is a perfect companion to a UPS, as it is able to provide power for a long duration.
Secure Power only supplies generators that are quality approved and tested here in the UK. This ensures that all of our generators are of the highest quality as they meet full international warranty, are CE-compliant, and it even exceeds European Standards on one metre sound attenuation.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is a local government body responsible for coordinating transport services throughout Greater Manchester. This means that the organisation needs to be protected from any possible power cuts or disturbances because without power TfGM wouldn’t be able to control transportation which would lead to chaos.
That’s why TfGM chose Secure Power for their emergency power solution, as they needed an expert’s advice and someone to deliver the project on time. This means that Secure Power needed to provide enough backup power for three days which consisted of fitting new UPS, changing batteries on existing UPS, and installing a generator on TfGM roof.
