19.5.2005: Meldung: Active Power Ships Five Megawatts of CleanSource DC Systems

Active Power, Inc., a leading manufacturer of battery-free power quality products, has shipped approximately five megawatts of its CleanSource? DC energy storage systems so far during its second fiscal quarter. Demand for the flywheel energy storage systems that replace batteries in uninterruptible power supply (UPS) installations has been strong throughout 2005, as further evidenced by the three-plus megawatts shipped in the first quarter of the year. In 2005, CleanSource DC products have been shipped to a large energy company in the Midwest, a bank in South Korea, a broadcast facility in Japan, several medical facilities and two U.S. government agencies.

CleanSource? DC flywheel energy storage systems have been commercially available since 1998 and have over 600 years of field-proven reliability and runtime at customer installations around the world. The reliability of the CleanSource DC systems installed to date has been measured at more than 10 times that of valve regulated lead-acid (VRLA) batteries, which have historically been the leading point of failure in UPS installations.

"We believe that the high reliability of CleanSource DC is a primary driver of end-user demand," stated Joe Pinkerton, Chairman and CEO of Active Power, Inc. "Customers now realize that the batteries they purchased in 1999 and 2000 are failing in ever increasing numbers and they want a reliable solution that will last as long as their critical power equipment. CleanSource DC is a good choice relative to batteries in mission critical applications because it is much more reliable, less costly to operate, non-toxic, requires less than 25% of the space and can withstand many thousands of discharge cycles during its operational life."
