PRIMARY AND EMERGENCY POWER BACKUP FOR MANUFACTURING
Main power can be lost due to downed lines, substation malfunctions, inclement weather, planned/unplanned blackouts, or in extreme cases a grid-wide failure.
Power outages at a factory can cause;
- Loss of productivity
- Damage to equipment and goods
- Delays in shipment and schedules
- Loss of business
- Financial loss
In modern manufacturing plants, most emergency power systems have been and are still based on diesel generators, although smaller buildings may use a gasoline engine driven generator or a gas turbine. Existing backup power systems contribute to high pollution levels and are up to 8X more expensive to operate on an hourly basis than the UPI 1000NG.
The UPI 1000NG is the solution that can reliably generate one megawatt of power on demand to keep a factory operational during any interruption of power. Its small footprint and lightweight design allow it to be stored in any space or easily moved when and where it is most needed. Daisy-chain UPI 1000NG generators to produce any power need up to 33 megawatts.
The UPI 1000NG runs cleanly and economically on natural gas. It meets EPA and CARB regulations while providing power at less than $0.10 per kilowatt-hour.
The cost of the UPI 1000NG is 30% to 50% less than competing power generators.

<65 dBA with option for <55dBA.
Uses any gaseous fuel – natural gas, propane, methane, butane, CNG, LNG, methenol, ethanol, etc.
for more robust, efficient operation than air cooling – operates at full power in the highest ambient temperatures.
Economical To Own and Operate
Cost significantly lower than any competing power generating systems including fuel, capex and maintenance.
