Unreliable mains power supplies and electrical power losses can have serious consequences for many industries. Production lines may have to perform a complex and costly restart; expensive products may be ruined; valuable production time lost; process equipment damaged; and safety issues may arise.
ABB in Indonesia with the support of its local distributor PT Kalinda Abadi Sukses, has successfully installed UPS solutions based on the PowerLine DPA 20–80 kVA system, that will guarantee continuous power availability to operation-critical infrastructure. The UPS is installed at four different locations of PT South Pacific Viscose (SPV) facility to help overcome their power supply issues.
SPV is part of Lenzing, a leading global manufacturer of viscose staple fibers and sodium sulfate, essential ingredients in fashion, home textiles, sports and outdoor wear, protection wear, cosmetic and hygiene products, and high-tech applications. The PT South Pacific Viscose (SPV) facility in Purwakarta, West Java, works hand in hand with Indonesia’s textile producers. Over 40 years in business, SPV's high-quality viscose fibers have contributed to Indonesia’s position as a leading global source of premium textiles.
Sigit Indrayana, Corporate Affairs Manager of SPV said “Each fiber we produce is made of cellulose, a natural component of our renewable source material wood. Improving power reliability is an important way to preserve this resource, improving productivity, reducing waste and making growth more efficient and sustainable.”
For instantaneous protection of production processes, an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) was the logical solution. “Reliable, continuous power is essential for critical operations and can be key to capitalizing on growth opportunities,” says Rajeni Ray, UPS Sales Manager for Power Protection at ABB Electrification iIndonesia. “A robust, high-performance UPS with lithium-ion battery helps ensure facilities have the 24/7 power supply they need. ABB’s PowerLine DPA UPS is performing well and ensuring SPV’s production can run continuously without the worry of any power losses.”
PowerLine DPA is an online double conversion UPS and makes the advantages of ABB’s unique modular UPS architecture available for locations where unreliable power supplies can be rough on electronic equipment and process controls. PowerLine DPA is based on ABB’s Decentralized Parallel Architecture (DPA) that ensures the very best UPS design in terms of availability, flexibility, cost, and ease of use. The PowerLine DPA is designed to have a design life of 20 years.
