Back-up Generation Systems
Southern Company subsidiary PowerSecure installed their patented PowerBlock® Generation System at Mount Siani Medical Center in Miami Beach, Florida. The PowerBlock® Generation System provides end-users with reliability, built-in redundancy and flexibility to control their energy usage. PowerSecure and Mount Siani Medical Center partnered to ensure the hospital never loses power in order to provide patients with continuous care. The PowerBlock® system operated flawlessly while Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, ravaged South Florida. During the storm, the generation system successfully supported a load of approximately 4.5 megawatts for some 19 hours, with no interruptions to power or patient care.
