CRITICAL POWER

Mission Critical Power Systems engineered, installed and maintained so you can focus on running your business.

When an outage strikes, your equipment is only as good as the backup plan in place to keep it running. Your most mission-critical equipment needs to stay online to prevent the disruption, expense and additional threats that come with an outage.

How can you ensure this level of uptime, while still focusing on running your business?

Many facilities make common mistakes with their power system backup strategies:

  • Building unnecessary redundancy into the system, causing friction and high costs

  • Oversimplifying the system, leaving the company open to advanced risks

When you work with Concentric, you can avoid these pitfalls and keep your mission-critical equipment running effectively and affordably.

Remember to plan ahead now, because no one thinks they're going to lose power... until they do.

Critical power solutions for your industry

In certain industries, critical power solutions are absolutely essential. You likely fall into this category if your facility is a:

  • Data center

  • Hospital or other medical center

  • Regional utility

  • Financial institution

  • Property management office

In more general terms, critical power solutions are important for:

  • Any company with mission-critical digital systems

  • Any organization using switchgear

The problems Concentric solves for these businesses include the following:

  • Lack of ownership clarity and accountability around backup power

  • Poorly documented critical power system designs

  • Lack of data transparency and clarity on system performance

  • Insufficient ongoing maintenance and upkeep

  • Expensive equipment replacement requirements

  • Haphazard installation of assets

  • Insufficient design skill to implement new switchgear

  • Inability to calculate total cost of ownership for critical power systems

  • Desire to unite all critical power needs under one provider, nationally

With a team of industry experts dedicated to creating and maintaining critical power solutions, Concentric can resolve these issues and more for your business.
