Power Taken Seriously by PCL

Electrical Review Logo

The UK’s fastest growing Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) specialist, Power Control Ltd (PCL), formerly Borri Ltd has supplied another high efficiency Borri UPS for one of the country’s top eye care retailers. 

Vision Express Ltd has purchased a high efficiency Borri B9000FXS to support its new distribution centre works in Nottingham. The 300kVA unit is now providing resilient power protection for the company’s new lens crafting department. 

It was imperative that the chosen UPS provided 100% reliable power resilience. Any power fluctuations and breaks in power could damage the company’s hi-tech lens equipment and conveyor belt system and result in £1000s of damage. Having purchased a number of Borri UPS units in the past to support various data centres across the country, Vision Express chose the Borri B9000FXS for its proven performance. 

Renowned for not just its power resilience, the transformer based Borri B9000FXS also comes with best in class efficiency, making its running costs significantly lower than other comparable UPS systems on the market. 

PCL also supplied an intelligent internal SNMP card for remote monitoring shutdown. For added peace of mind, all of the Borri three phase UPS systems are provided by PCL with a unique UK three year parts warranty, which can help to dramatically reduce the total cost of ownership when combined with a maintenance contract in the first three years.

Working closely with one of its preferred electrical contractors, STP Solutions, PCL supplied, installed and commissioned the Borri B9000FXS within a matter of weeks. With a very short time frame to work within, precision planning was essential and both PCL and STP Solutions worked tirelessly to ensure the entire project was delivered seamlessly. 

Vision Express’ Senior Systems Engineer, Chris Wardle commented: “The design and manufacturing quality of Borri UPS systems is first class. We have every confidence that our production line equipment will be protected against any spikes or loss in power. We have also been thoroughly impressed with the efficiency of the units and look forward to reaping the rewards of the year on year cost savings.

“It is not just the quality of UPS that has impressed us but also the quality of service from both Borri Ltd (now PCL) and STP Solutions, which has been impeccable. All the engineers responded quickly and were exceptionally conscientious. I would highly recommend both companies to anyone looking for consistently reliable products and service.”

As the UK’s fastest growing UPS specialist, PCL also has an unrivalled maintenance repertoire and is renowned for its flexible contract solutions. Vision Express has been benefiting from PCL’s expansive maintenance services for a number of years and has taken out a three year, tailored gold maintenance contract for its latest UPS unit. 

Mr Wardle said: “We have been using Borri Ltd (PCL) for all our UPS requirements for a number of years and renew our contracts annually. We trust the company implicitly to deliver exactly what we need and at a fair cost. The level of service is exceptional and we have excellent relationships with the Borri (PCL) team, which is vitally important in any long standing relationship.”

Formerly Borri Ltd, PCL rebranded in January 2015 to give the company greater opportunities to offer a wider pool of equipment, technical services and project solutions. This scope also further emphasises PCL’s commitment to delivering tailored power protection solutions for the UK and overseas markets. 

PCL continues to be committed to Borri three phase UPS products and technologies and remains an official UK distributor for the Italian UPS manufacturer. PCL continues to receive direct manufacturing and technical support from Borri Spa whilst maintaining its high level of engineering involvement, which is supported by its all encompassing service and maintenance programmes and high UPS and product spares stock levels. 

PCL is much more than just a UPS supplier – we are a total solutions provider.
