Let us design your “Optional Standby” power system! We’ve designed and installed backup power systems from 20KW single phase to 600KW three phase.
Not sure what your needs are? We can work with your utility provider to determine exactly what your KW demand is. Only need a portion of your facility protected? We can provide the necessary demand study using our Fluke 1730 Energy Logger, no guessing, no over sizing.
We’ll design the system you want to meet your current and future needs.
We’re not a manufacture’s sales agent. We work closely with several major generator manufacturer’s representatives. This allows us to offer you multiple cost options, and with future service contracts through these manufactures representatives you always have access to the best trained technicians and service bulletins.
Does your facility require an NFPA “legally required” or “Emergency backup” listing? Sanborn Electric has extensive experience working with and installing 2 hour fire rated wiring methods such as type “MI” (Mineral Insulated) cabling, or the knowledge to help you meet this requirement through building material types.
Did you notice there were three different names used to describe backup power? Proper identification of your needs will determine the end cost of your system.
As with all of our projects, we can provide the necessary turnkey services you require or work with vendors you may already rely on.See an example
We designed and installed a system using both diesel and natural gas generators interconnected with multiple automatic transfer switches.
Each power buss had its own individual Kohler 30KW generator, when cross connected automatically with an adjoining power buss generator, each generator could power the specific buss, both busses together, or the adjoining buss only.
Multiple fuel systems provided an additional level of survivability, the entire system was networked using the Kohler Monitor Three System, any trouble condition anywhere in the system would notify personnel immediately via their security system interconnect giving them the opportunity to check on the trouble status via the web based software program.
Haas Group International, a worldwide chemical storage provider with a local facility containing over 100,000 square feet of warehouse space, installed some 200 tons of air conditioning to maintain stringent customer environmental requirements. Their number one concern, backup power for sustained loss of utility power. Solution, Sanborn Electric designed and installed a system comprising of a 2000A Bypass Isolation Automatic transfer switch with a 350KW diesel generator set, problem solved! Haas has continued to employ our services ever since from routine electrical maintenance to wiring a 10,000 square foot CL1 DIV1 storage facility.
Any electrician can install a backup generator. Only a few have the expertise to design a cost effective system to meet your unique needs. Sanborn Electric is ready to discuss your needs today.
