UNINTERRUPTIBLE POWER SUPPLIES LIMITED - Powerwave 8000DPA Awarded Inclusion On To ECA List For Environmentally Conscious Products

The highly acclaimed, modular PowerWAVE 8000DPA UPS from Uninterruptible Power Supplies Limited (UPSL) has now been included in the Carbon Trust’s Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) approved products list.

The ECA Scheme for Energy Saving Technologies was created to encourage environmentally proactive businesses to invest in plant or machinery which has been designed with energy efficiency in mind, and which has been recognised as such on the Carbon Trust’s Energy Technology Product List (ETPL).

In real terms, this inclusion means businesses investing in the 8000DPA can offset 100% of the cost of the UPS against taxable profits; therefore potentially reducing the organisation’s tax bill by 26% of the equipment cost.

If your business pays corporation tax at the current rate of 26%, every £1,000 spent on qualifying equipment would reduce its tax bill in the year of purchase by £260. Loss-making companies can also receive a substantial tax benefit when purchasing ETL qualifying technologies, with Payable ECAs. Through this scheme the Government will reimburse the organisation the value of the ECA equipment, up to 19% of company’s total loss for that year.

The PowerWAVE 8000DPA already boasts one of the greatest levels of critical load availability, flexibility and energy efficiency in the market.The 8000DPA is able to offer 96.5% true online efficiency, which significantly reduces system running costs and on-site air conditioning costs – and helps ensure the PowerWAVE 8000DPA offers one of the lowest total cost of ownership and smallest carbon footprint in its class.

PowerWAVE 8000DPA key benefits
• Up to 120kVA (100kVA N+1) in a single frame
• Decentralised Parallel Architecture (DPA™) assures exceptional availability and maximum uptime through critical component and circuitry duplication
• ‘Six nines’ (99.9999%) availability
• ‘Hot-Swap’ modularity provides total flexibility ensuring the UPS can be ‘rightsized’ to the critical load at initial installation, reducing initial costs, optimising operating efficiency and reducing the total cost of ownership.
• Quick and simple power upgrade or repair by ‘Hot Swapping’ modules while the UPS is online maximises availability and simplifies system upgrades
• High operating efficiency across a wide load range
• Small footprint – only 0.42m2 at 120kVA (100kVA N+1) delivering a power density of up to 283kW/m2 – allowing substantial and valuable space savings even at the highest power ratings
• Near unity input power factor at partial and full loads (PF>0.99 @ 100% load)
• Low input harmonic distortion (THDi<3%)
• Blade server friendly – provides fully rated output real power between power factors 0.9 leading and 0.8 lagging
• Transformerless technology
• Easy front access for operation and maintenance

ECA Scheme key features
• Open to all businesses that pay UK corporation or income tax, regardless of size, sector or location.
• Provides 100% first-year capital allowances on investments in energy-saving equipment against taxable profits of the period of investment.
• All the products listed on the Energy Technology Product List must meet the energy-saving criteria, published in the Energy Technology Criteria List.
• Only spending on new and unused energy-saving equipment can qualify for ECAs.
• Capital allowances are available for spending “on the provision of” plant and machinery. This can include certain costs arising as a direct result of the installation of qualifying plant and machinery such as; transport of the equipment to the site, and some direct installation costs
