CASE STUDY: Backing You Up in an Emergency

CASE STUDY: Backing You Up in an Emergency

On August 8th, 2008, at 4pm, Integrated Power Sources of Virginia received a call from Dominion Power informing us that the back up batteries for their data and telecommunication center had failed. These battery systems back up all data and telecom systems company-wide. IPSofVA immediately dispatched a crew of technicians to the site with a temporary set of batteries. IPSofVA worked through the night to remove the failed batteries and install temporary power, without interrupting the data processing center’s ability to perform. This attention to our customer’s emergency concerns resulted in a significant order and installation for IPSofVA.

CASE STUDY: Thermal Runaway at the US Geological Center

CASE STUDY: Thermal Runaway at the US Geological Center

On July 7th, 2008, Integrated Power Sources of Virginia received a call from the United States Geological Center concerning a set of batteries that were going into thermal runaway. “Thermal runaway” is a term used to describe batteries that have short circuited and are experiencing a substantial increase in battery temperature. If left unchecked, batteries in a thermal runaway WILL cause a fire, and can even explode. Not only does this endanger human life, but also can destroy any sensitive equipment in the area. IPSofVA dispatched a team of technicians including our President and CEO, Steve Schenkelberger. After arriving at the site and dismantling the existing battery to stop the thermal reaction, IPSofVA worked through the night to install a set of back-up batteries. The Geological Center never experienced any interruption in service. This action prevented a hazardous materials incident and resulted in a very strong relationship between IPSofVA and our customer, as well as a significant order for services.
