Hospitals must have reliable power, without it patients are at risk. But with blackouts becoming more common (the UK’s spinning reserve is reportedly down to just 1.2%) hospitals need ultra reliable back up gensets. IPU has a range of products and services that helps to improve reliability to safeguard your hospital:


A hospital’s critical systems include:

  • life support systems
  • monitoring systems
  • sprinkler systems

But, the reliability and dependability of their back up power systems depends on:

  • An ability to start after long shutdowns – back up generators tend to sit idle for long periods of time. Unfortunately the batteries used to start them have a limited shelf life. Eventually they lose the ability to hold enough charge to start the engine. IPU improves reliability by removing the need for a battery. IPU’s starting systems can hold enough energy almost indefinitely.
  • Having clean fuel – modern diesel fuel can be expected to stay in a usable condition for 6-12 months. Store it any longer and it begins to suffer from contamination. The 3 main contaminants are: water, microbial growth and solid particulates. This can damage fuel injectors, block fuel filters or cause total engine failure. IPU has a range of products and services that can remove fuel contamination and keep your diesel to EN 590 clean fuel standards.
