What is Reactive Response?

At Pleavin Power, we understand that needing an emergency power supply can be a harrowing experience, one that needs to be met with a reactive response. What is a reactive response? A reactive response is exactly as it reads. A unique offering developed, built, and operated by our experts at Pleavin Power Limited.

We pride ourselves on being available 24/7 to our clients in the Critical Power, Standby Power & Prime Power Sectors. Reactive for us means “Ready when you are”, ensuring we are always ready and operating around the clock. Our experienced and committed Technical Engineers provide exceptional emergency call-out services.

Our dedicated emergency power supply service was developed to support the critical power industry in case of power outages or other emergencies, providing an uninterruptible power supply source. 

Furthermore, our team at Pleavin Power has access to a number of purposely built and stocked 7.5-ton and 44-ton vehicles with a wealth of essential equipment to deliver in our client’s darkest hours. Including equipment such as electric motors, backup-powered generators, and transfer switches, among many others.

Our vehicles provide our staff with the equipment, resources, and spare parts that enable a ‘first-time fix’ in emergency situations. Moreover, the vehicles also carry some very special equipment that provides further reinforcement. At Pleavin Power, our expert team always ensures to go beyond their response capabilities.

Special Equipment:

  • Dedicated Network Connection Devices 
  • Copper Bus-Bar Bending Equipment

Should a situation occur in which our reactive response team deems a repair unachievable, we will call upon our own in-house dedicated 66-ton per Meter Lorry Loader Fassi Crane. This is to deliver, position, and install emergency power from our own in-house stocks and a nationwide network of power partners. 

We can supply, install, and commission anything from 10Kva to Multi MVA in the event of a critical power emergency. As a result, our reactive response vehicles and team members will have all the equipment and power requirements they need to get you back online in the fastest and safest way possible.

Should the need for a critical power supply be in need, this will be passed on to our incident commanders. Our incident commanders will feed information back to our 24/7 customer support centre, which will keep you informed of the response, resources, and remedy of the action.

The incident commander will oversee the fault, support, and management of the incident until power is restored or emergency equipment is commissioned.

Recovery Plans

As well as offering our ‘industry-first’ service, we can also provide dedicated disaster recovery plans. This is a plan that is developed off the back of an intrusive site survey where a member of our team will design and implement control measures for emergency situations such as transformer failure or a cable fault. The disaster recovery plan will detail things such as:

  • Connection Points 
  • Isolation Points 
  • Equipment Locations 
  • Operating Environment
  • Load Profiles 
  • Fluid Sampling Results
  • Previous Service History 
  • Manufacturer Recommendations

Once the site survey is completed, we may also recommend the installation of dedicated connection points that can speed up the process in an emergency situation by providing a way of connecting a mobile generator directly to your site’s low-voltage or high-voltage network.

Reactive Response, Incident Management & Disaster recovery plans are available to any business or network operator that relies on a continuous portable power station to remain operational this includes industries such as Hospitals, Data-Centres, Peaking-Plants, Combined Heat and Power, Production Facilities, Manufacturing Facilities, Rail and anywhere that loss of power can cause disruption.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any further questions about our emergency power supply service? If you browse this section, you might be able to find the answer to your question.

Should you experience a power outage, you will likely require an emergency power supply. If you do not know how to power your critical power supplies, we suggest that you follow one of two options. You can either purchase an engine-powered backup generator. These can utilise petrol, diesel, or propane. Making for a suitable emergency power system that will ensure your electricity will remain operational.

Alternatively, you can opt for an inverter that will ensure your power is restored via vehicle battery charge or a deep-cycle battery you have purchased for the inverter.

Should you experience a power outage, resulting in you losing your source of electricity, you will see your emergency power supply start automatically as a fail-safe. Meaning you are not lost of power for long. This means your place of work can be operational a lot sooner.

How does an emergency power supply work? Ultimately, when you experience a power failure, your emergency power system will automatically switch to a battery system for backup power and will run uninterrupted electrical power to your supply system. This will ensure the seamless operation of the devices you require power for.

People often mistake standby power with an emergency power supply, to understand what is the difference between an emergency power supply and standby power, it is determined by how quickly each system will be booted up. For instance, an emergency power supply will kick in roughly 10 seconds after a power outage.

Ensuring the emergency backup generator will provide an uninterruptible power supply as soon as possible. This will make sure that your power loss is kept to a minimum.

Whereas the power system of a standby generator can take roughly up to a minute after the outage occurs. In essence, emergency backup power systems are designed to work entirely independently. Meaning that they will feature their own specific conduits and panels.

In short, yes, a generator for emergencies is crucial as it’s your lifeline during power outages, ensuring all of your vital appliances stay on. There are other methods that you can use for generating power in emergencies, but generators will provide you with peace of mind, especially during severe weather or unforeseen events, ensuring you have the necessary electricity to meet basic needs.
