Business Need

Amcor has experienced extensive damage to a printing plant valued at $5 million through the affects of irregular power supply and generalised surges. These conditions created not only damage but production downtime, which was expensive in real time.

How NPS Helped

NPS installed parallel redundant 3-phase 80kVA UPS systems to provide constant power supply battery backup in case of power failure. Also a maintenance bypass switch and a surge diverter were fitted to the incoming mains of the UPS for overall lightning/surge protection. The redundancy of the UPS systems enabled optimum security.


Amcor can now operate the production with the knowledge that downtime is considerably reduced. The UPS and surge diverter are maintained under a preventative maintenance contract. Less downtime equals increased profit and improved safety.
