Innovation award for Powerstar MAX



Dr Alex Mardapittas receives the innovation award from Nick Clegg and Jon Culshaw
Powerstar MAX , the innovative new voltage optimisation solution from the UK’s leading manufacturer of energy saving solutions EMS, has won the Innovation of the Year award at the Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards.

Powerstar MAX, which is specifically designed for sites with high levels of voltage fluctuation and volatility, won the prestigious award ahead of entries from fellow finalists Q8 Oils and Premier Farnell.

In addition to the energy savings, carbon reduction, phase balancing, harmonic filtration and transient protection offered by EMS’s standard Powerstar system, the Powerstar MAX offers electronic-dynamic optimisation to ensure the optimum voltage is always supplied to a site.

Additional features include, the capability to change the voltage remotely at any time, constant voltage output - regardless of the incoming voltage - no moving parts, which means no maintenance costs, protection against voltage spikes, independent three phase control - to provide voltage phase balancing - and an intelligent interface to track product and site performance in real time.

Manufactured in the UK, all the components for the system are sourced in the UK. Powerstar MAX is also the only voltage optimisation system in the world to be granted a patent on its design.

The new technology does not supersede the original Powerstar system but offers an alternative solution to businesses whose site characteristics are unsuited to fixed voltage optimisation.

Powerstar MAX can help companies save up to 26.1% on electricity consumption, as the dynamic new solution features advanced technology to automatically adjust voltage output and maintain it at the optimum level. This makes Powerstar MAX ideal for sites with critical equipment, such as hospitals or data centres, and sites which suffer from an unstable supply.

In such cases businesses can achieve up to 50% more savings through the electronic Powerstar MAX system than any standard fixed voltage optimisation solution.

With worsening power quality issues nationwide and the average power supplied by the National Grid exceeding the recommended operating voltages - for much of the plant, as well as machinery and equipment used - the launch of Powerstar MAX is particularly relevant in the UK as it optimises the voltage in line with the characteristics and loading of each specific site through electronic-dynamic variable reduction.

EMS is the UK’s most experienced manufacturer of voltage optimisation systems, having already successfully installed solutions for Whitbread, Asda, the NHS, Transport for London, Holiday Inn and Mothercare, amongst others.

Alex Mardapittas, managing director at EMS commented, “As a Yorkshire based company, we are delighted to have won the Innovation Award at the Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards. Powerstar MAX represents the next generation of voltage optimisation systems. Not only does it provide companies with a quick, easy to install solution for reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions, but our acclaimed, project led approach ensures that the optimum solution is always installed for every customer.”
