In an effort to mitigate the effects of interrupted power and ensure business sustainability, Rand-Air has added efficient energy storage systems to its hire fleet, delivering a clean energy hybrid solution to customers.

“Reinforcing our commitment to providing customers with clean rental solutions, we recently added the new ZenergiZe ZBC 250-500 kVA battery energy storage system to our hire fleet,” says Rand-Air sales and marketing manager Byrone Thorne. He explains that whilst the ZenergiZe cannot replace grid power completely, this highly efficient modular energy storage unit offers a clean, reliable and efficient short-term solution where grid power is intermittent.

The system can be used in combination with a generator and can also manage energy generated from intermittent renewable energy sources, offering a hybrid power solution for a range of industries. Moreover, micro-grids can be created to provide energy to residential, commercial, industrial or public service applications.

Thorne explains that operators can reduce fuel bills by alternating between the ZenergiZe and a generator. He also recommends using the more efficient ZenergiZe when demand is high and then switching to a generator when demand is low.

Designed with sustainability in mind, Rand-Air says its innovative storage system offers a cleaner energy solution for a range of industrial and retail applications across diverse segments – from food processing and data centres to the entertainment and tertiary education sectors.

With lower carbon emissions and reduced noise levels, the low maintenance system is particularly suitable for noise-sensitive environments such as events, film-making and shopping centres. 

The unit features a compact design with high-density lithium-ion batteries which are capable of providing over 12 hours of power. The batteries are said to be lighter in weight compared to other technologies and the ZenergiZe is also 70% more compact in contrast to traditional alternatives. This facilitates easy transportation and installation of the system.

The unit incorporates a number of connectivity features and benefits including a smart start-and-stop function, an energy management system with battery management communication, a remote monitoring system, a Bluetooth mobile application as well as a parking mode.                                                                      

“Our comprehensive rental fleet includes mobile oil-free and oil-injected air compressors, diesel- and electric-powered screw air compressors, from 30 kVA to 1 000 kVA diesel generators, lighting plants and pumps, with steam boilers coming soon,” concludes Thorne.
