Brand new exhibitor CCL Components will be exhibiting a new portable battery system which offers reduced costs with fuel and carbon-free power generation.  

CCL Components will be at the EHS for the first time in 2017.

CCL Components, one of the UK’s largest distributors of renewable energy systems and solutions, has developed a new portable hybrid power system which it believes will enhance the off-grid energy market and provide a myriad of benefits for a wide variety of industries. The company has chosen the EHS to introduce this new technology to the hire sector.

According to CCL, Powerplus is a flexible battery system which can be used alongside, or in place of, existing power generators to deliver major energy savings and reduced carbon emissions. With additional benefits of reduced noise pollution and significantly lower maintenance requirements, it has been estimated to deliver an average of 30-50% cost savings against conventional power generation models.

Recently launched, Powerplus resolves many limitations of conventional power generators, such as wasted energy, high running costs and air pollution, whilst enhancing power reliability and reducing fuel consumption.

Powerplus requires minimal connections, offering true flexibility for end users. Containing its own Power Assist mechanism, the unit can switch between itself and generator power in response to fluctuating power loads to protect the entire system from damage.

With an ability to accept a solar input, Powerplus can be used as a completely fuel-free power generator, depending on load profile.

Powerplus has the potential to enhance the off-grid energy sector by changing the way customers use power .

Glasgow-based CCL Components developed the new power system in response to a growing demand for low carbon and cost-effective power generation options for remote locations and grid-restricted areas. The idea for a commercially available hybrid power system was borne from one of CCL Components’ earlier projects in the military sector. It has invested heavily in research and development of the product, taking data from trials for products in military contexts and applying it to commercial challenges.

Paul Brooks, Operations Director of CCL Components, said: “While various countries increase their focus on reducing carbon emission and increasing their use of renewable energy, there remains a need for reliable power generation in remote locations and off-grid areas.

“We have designed Powerplus to address all of these concerns while also offering flexibility and costs savings for customers. We believe Powerplus will be perfectly suited to a wide variety of industries and situations such as construction sites, events, telecoms, small-scale renewables or remote off-grid locations.

“We truly believe Powerplus has the potential to enhance the off-grid energy sector by changing the way customers use power – essentially saving money and reducing the impact on the environment.”

Powerplus is CCL Components’ first own-developed product and is available in 6kVA, 10kVA, 18kVA and 30kVA models.
