Why a Correct UPS or Generator Installation is Important

A professional installation carried out by an expert engineer can ensure your backup systems run at peak performance for years to come. 

It is vital for a generator and UPS system to be properly installed to ensure a long working life. UPS systems, (usually over 3kVA), and generators, (typically over 10kVA), require an installation by a qualified electrician in full compliance with all statutory regulations.

All electrical installations meet strict National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC) criteria.

In-House Team of Qualified Electrical Engineers

Regardless of your project size, Specialist Power Systems will bring our knowledge and experience to every installation to make sure your critical power backup system performs the way it was designed to.

Our engineers will ensure all installations are completed correctly, carry out essential final checks, and commission the system so it’s working optimally from day one.

We follow a professional approach to every install. Our project managers and engineers work together to manage every aspect of your installation project. From the initial design, right the way through to final electrical testing and commissioning.

Free UPS & Generator Site Surveys

Essential for any successful UPS and generator installation, every new project begins with a free site survey so we can get a detailed understanding of you and your business.

To make sure you get the correct UPS system or generator we will send one of our qualified experts to your premises and carry out a comprehensive survey. From this survey we can assess your requirements to make sure we provide you with the right power protection solution for your business and budget.

Our site surveys are always followed up with a comprehensive quotation, detailing all aspects of the proposed solution, enabling the implementation of your essential business continuity plan.

Full UPS & Generator Design Service

At the design stage we take into consideration many factors including:

  • Current and future proofed power requirements
  • Logistics
  • Space Planning
  • Environmental requirements
  • Life-cycle cost of ownership
  • Efficiency planning
  • Carbon footprint analysis

We Work With All The Best Manufacturers

We look at where the UPS should be positioned to maximise space and what sort of access is required for future maintenance and take this into consideration for all design and install recommendations.

We pay particular attention to the environment that the UPS or generator will be sited to ensure this will not impact negatively on the performance or the expected life-cycle of your systems.

The system design will be specified from a wide choice of major manufacturers that we work closely with from APC, Eaton, Socomec, Riello, Vertiv and SDMO / Kohler.

Full Electrical and Mechanical Installation

Once the design is agreed, we will then carry out a full electrical and mechanical install of the UPS and/or generator using our own team of qualified in-house engineers.

Installations can be carried out during working hours or arranged outside of office hours to minimise disruption to your business. Every installation is supported by detailed method statements and risk assessments to ensure everything complies to all current industry standards.

Our team will plan everything from initial installation works to final switch on and commission to ensure there is minimum impact on your business.

Complete Testing and Commissioning

A comprehensive and thorough testing and commissioning of a UPS system or standby generator is crucial to make sure all installations are working as planned.

We provide on-site training for key personnel to ensure that the systems we install and handover can easily be monitored by your maintenance / IT team.

  • Start-up of all installed equipment
  • Demonstration of all functions
  • Certified electrical testing
  • Sign off all equipment with customer handover
  • In-depth customer training
  • Warranty validation

Most manufacturers mandate that all installations are fully tested and commissioned by a certified engineer to validate the warranty.


Installation With Minimal Disruption to Your Business

Our professional team will work closely with you, ensuring your UPS and/or generator installation is commissioned safely, on time and with minimal disruption to your business.

We will work closely with you to transfer your critical equipment to your new critical power protection system at a time that has the least impact to your business. Final switchover can be arranged to accommodate your final commissioning at any time of day or night to suit.

As Approved Service Partners with all the manufacturers we work with, our expert engineers will ensure all installations are completed to manufacturer guidelines. We carry out essential final checks, and power up the system so it is on-line and ready to protect your business.
