UPS solutions protect Greenfield Foods from production downtime and losses

The project

Greenfield Foods UPS installation and commission

The background

Greenfield Foods are the leading supplier of eggs in Ireland. They grade, pack and distribute approximately five million eggs per week nationwide. As well as supplying the major retailers with their own branded products, they also pack their own brands including Greenfield, Ballyfree, Omegga, Big & Jumbo, and Innisfree.

Greenfield Foods required back-up power for egg sorting and grading equipment, and for their server room.

The solution

Continu offered a 60kVA MGE Galaxy 5000 UPS as well as a MGE Galaxy 3000 UPS and APC SmartUPS 750 to support the load in various parts of the business. Greenfield recognised the critical importance of protecting the power as failures could cost the company substantial sums in factory downtime.

The results

The installed UPS’s are helping to protect the company from financial loss as a result of production downtime. Greenfield opted for the Bronze Support Plan, which provides them with peace of mind and an economical solution for their three UPS’s.

“We have been using Continu for the past three years. All work has been carried out quickly and to a high standard. We first used them when we had a problem with our UPS; they immediately came to site and got us up and running. They now manage the service of the three UPS systems we have on site. I would have no problem recommending Continu to other companies.” Daniel Smyth, Greenfield Foods
