ABN AMRO Clearing approached Kohler Uninterruptible Power with a requirement for a UPS to back-up its network connectivity at its Singapore office in Fraser’s Tower.
“A power failure would be catastrophic to the business. The loss of network connectivity within the office would critically impact the processing of clearing transactions for our clients who include principle trading groups, professional traders, investment firms, and hedge funds” says Taufiq Bin Abdul Ghany, IT Engineer at ABN AMRO Clearing. “It was therefore essential to ensure that our connections were backed up 24/7/365.”
In March 2022, KUP installed a 6kVA Kohler PW1000/ORM UPS into the building to work in conjunction with the existing standby generator. The PW1000/ORM is a single-phase UPS combining high efficiency of up to 96.5% and a power factor of 0.9, to protect effectively against the loss of power and mains disturbances.
Taufig continues “We decided to approach Kohler Uninterruptible Power for our backup power requirements. The sales contact was very helpful in determining which was the right UPS for our requirements. The very reasonable purchase, installation and running costs of the PW1000/ORM UPS, in addition to the excellent service support, were the deciding factor. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend KUP to others.”
