NMC Power System Solutions for Hospitals

Hospitals have grown from single building units to multiple campuses within the past several decades. When you’re considering generators for your medical center, larger campuses require more than one generation system. As the healthcare industry grows, you may face the challenge to provide a source of electrical power backed up with reliable emergency and standby power systems.

As such, it’s imperative to ensure an uninterrupted flow, especially during unexpected outages that can come in many forms — think natural disasters, weather-related events, crisis, widespread blackouts and equipment failure. While it’s easier to plan for scheduled outages, unexpected happenings may be trickier to handle.

Why You Need NMC’s Backup Power at Your Hospital

The essential electrical systems of hospitals often include different branches to transfer constant power to critical areas of priority. For example, three separate branches exist: life safety, critical and equipment. The essential electrical system, also known as the EES, had two sources of power. One is the public utility source, and the other must be on site, which is a generator.

When you invest in a standby power generation system from NMC, you receive reliable backup power that will help keep people alive. Cat® generators ensure critical life support power and operate at peak efficiencies. Uninterruptible power supply systems, automatic transfer switches and switchgear support Cat systems to make them more reliable. NMC equipment also meet EU and U.S. EPA emission standards, and installations must comply with NFPA 110 and NFPA 70.

When lives are on the line, you can’t worry about whether your hospital will stay running. It’s essential to have a trustworthy backup power source that will provide additional energy in emergencies and meet your requirements for high levels of uptime. Healthcare operations such as data analytics, patient information and life-sustaining machines all need continual vitality.

How NMC Generators Can Benefit Data Centers

Data centers provide and ensure customers with 99.99% uptime availability, but you can’t afford to lose power when an unplanned outage occurs. You must protect information, safeguard online transactions and store critical content along with dozens of other services. However, if you’re unable to restore power, it can affect many people’s personal lives.

For you to maintain your networks and systems, it’s vital to invest in data center power system solutions from NMC. In a world that never stops, you must maintain uptime and have 24/7 backup that can continue running your operation at peak performance levels. Redundancy is essential in the data center industry, as it ensures your connections never go down. In an information-based economy, you can install data center backup power to generate hours of energy until the utility supply is back.

Why Choose NMC’s Power Solutions for Data Centers?

At NMC, we offer continuous standby and temporary power to keep your systems secure. Cat® generators for data centers are the most efficient in the industry and meet EU and U.S. EPA emission standards. Our equipment has automatic transfer switches and switchgear tailored to fit your requirements. Cat power systems will help your company continue to grow and provide accessible service and support to people across the globe — even when the grid goes down.

You can benefit from our generation units thanks to their reliability and availability. With backup power system solutions set in place, you won’t have to worry about losing critical information. Generators keep your business’s power supply at constant levels and compensate for power fluctuations. As a result, they protect all electrical components and systems.

NMC Utility Power Generation

Utility power generation is a necessity for operations such as utility companies, municipalities, manufacturers, power producers and industrial operators. Each generates electricity to meet demands of their consumers while seeking cost-effective and reliable utility power generation. For your company to serve various industries, natural gas generators can be your solution for long-lasting and efficient energy.

Why Do You Need Utility Power Solutions?

At NMC, we realize utility grid power demands often occur in the morning and late afternoon. When people arrive home, everyone switches on a few lights, begins to make food or puts on the TV. With people performing the same behaviors, upsurges in power usage transpire for a short period.

If you’re searching for utility power solutions for spikes in energy or daily operations, electric utilities can operate gas engine generators to meet base or peak loads. Gas engine generators are most often used to handle peak loads and generator power plants provide power to small areas or an entire city.

Power plants usually have multiple 2-6 MW generators as a source of power to cover their primary electric grid. Distinctive solutions operate from 100 to 3000 hours each year. For smaller energy sources, you should use diesel fuel generators. However, natural gas fuels higher hours of applications and extended peak durations.

Choose NMC as Your Utility Power Solutions Provider

NMC offers Cat® switchgear, which operates multiple generators and corresponds with the primary grid. Our generators can meet your local needs during peak times, or you can also sell the power in open markets to make a profit. Whether you need a stationary or temporary diesel generator, NMC provides you cost-effective, reliable power.

As an affordable power source for your customers, Cat generation systems meet your increases in demand when you require non-stop running. We’re your on-going source for service and support, and our trained experts can give you consultation on design, installation and maintenance of power plant designs
