An uninterruptible power supply that is well maintained and operated within a managed environment can expect to have a working life of 10 years or longer. For a generator this can increase to 15-20 years.
For some organisations that Synchronised Power works with the opportunity can arise to re-use a decommission UPS system or generating set on another part of a site or another location. Our power engineers can provide a complete decommissioning, installation and re-commission service and work with our specialist logistics team to safely move the kit to the new location.
Some relocations are relatively straightforward and require a site survey and general project management. Others due to site limitations and transport arrangements may require the UPS system or generator to be stripped down into component assemblies with transformer removal being a classic example to reduce transportation weights.
We provide a health check inspection for UPS and generators that require refurbishment before re-use at a new location. Synchronised Power carries out the assessment on-site and if the quotation is accepted the kit can be refurbished on-site or moved to a convenient workshop for the service work to be carried out.
As a guide, UPS systems approaching 8 years of service may require a full refurbishment including changing capacitors and fans in addition to battery sets. For generators refurbishment decisions can be based on the overall hours the generator set has run. Sometimes it is possible to refurbish both UPS and generators and sell them in the second-user market (as second-hand systems) for less critical loads and/or remote areas.
The principle consumable item in an uninterruptible power supply, standby power or emergency lighting system is the batteries. These are typically Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) type.
Synchronised Power can arrange for the safe removal and disposal of UPS systems and their batteries. Our power engineers fully disconnected the systems and isolate them prior to being moved to a licensed recycling centre who will strip down the units and batteries into the component parts and recycle those materials that can be reclaimed.
Specialist battery companies who can strip down the batteries into their separate components of plastic cases, metal plates and acidic electrolyte, for recycling in compliance with WEEE and RoHS and any other local or national waste management regulations and the guidelines from the Environmental Agency.
Waste transfer notes and Disposal Certificates are provided by the recycling centre of client files.
One of the principle reasons for awarding contracts to Synchronised Power is experience in helping companies improve their energy efficiency through system upgrades. To provide a comprehensive service to our clients we have the necessary procedures and personnel in place to safely remove and dispose of other building systems including lighting, heating and ventilation air conditioners and electrical and network wiring.
Synchronised Power offers a trade-in service for some electrical systems including uninterruptible power supplies where the taken system can be used for hire or the second-user market place. A discount can be arranged for the new system and its replacement. Rebates can also be made available for battery recycling as the recycling centre will provide a sum for the waste materials which can be passed on.
