Manufacturing plants and facilities require significant power to function, and business continuity cannot be compromised by power disruptions. These facilities must be resilient against disaster events that affect the grid to remain competitive. Enchanted Rock is a leader in power resiliency as a service, meaning your facility receives a dynamic backup power solution at a uniquely affordable cost.
CLEAN BURNING MICROGRIDS
Traditionally, facilities utilize diesel generators for backup power, which require frequent maintenance and are a financial burden. Alternatively, our natural gas microgrids perform like diesel generators, but they are more reliable, cost-effective, and much cleaner. Natural gas has an underground infrastructure that remains unaffected by weather events and grid disturbances, allowing the microgrid system to provide continuous power for any duration – ranging from days to weeks with no refueling.
ASSET MANAGEMENT SERVICE
Enchanted Rock’s resiliency-as-a-service solution with its dualpurpose micorgrids enable companies to stay powered and communities to be resilient. Manufactures are able to choose a subscription- based service or elect to own the supported asset where Enchanted Rock helps you reduce risk, maintain resiliency and enhance operations 24/7/365. The Enchanted Rock’s offering, delivers resilient backup power, often at half the price of diesel, by financing, operating, and maintaining the systems.This turnkey solution allows manufacturing operators to focus exclusively on providing mission critical services.
MODULAR AND SCALABLE
Enchanted Rock’s dual-purpose microgrid are powered by ultra clean natural gas. The gensets have a compact, patent-pending packaging design that results in a small footprint. The modularity is taken one step further by creating power that centralizes all of the generation onto a daisy-chained MV bus that connects to both A and B sides of the switchgear. This means that single gensets can be taken out of service for maintenance without greatly affecting reliability, which is a major difference from a standard backup power design.
Enchanted Rock’s dual-purpose microgrids have the added benefit of providing additional financial streams, making the assets cost-effective for data center operators. With our fully-managed and sustainable microgrids, Enchanted Rock has reimagined the way companies ensure business continuity in the face of grid failure. Coupled with comprehensive support services, our team of experts designs, installs, operates and maintains purpose-built systems that enable worry-free protection from extended electrical outages.
The manufacturing industry has successfully demonstrated its commitment to environmental initiatives. However, the diesel generator fleet at most manufacturing companies runs counter to these achievements. Diesel fuel emits high levels of carbon, particulate matter, and NOx when compared to a natural gas equivalent. Enchanted Rock’s microgrids have significantly lower emissions than Tier 2 and even Tier 4f diesel generators. For example, Enchanted Rock’s zero-hour emission factor for NOx is 4000 times lower than Tier 2 diesel engines and 400 times cleaner than a Tier 4f diesel engine. The resiliency microgrids have a quick-response nature in grid-synchronous mode that allows them to provide ancillary services to grid operators. Grid operators can then balance intermittent renewables and further the integration of renewable energy sources.
