Rechargeable SBL nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries provide eight hours of power to support for critical systems.
Oil exploration sites the world over are known for their inhospitable environment and the operation on the island of Kashagan in the Caspian Sea is no exception. Borri SpA, a specialist in the design and manufacture of power electronic equipment, was contracted to install 26 UPS systems and specified Saft rechargeable Ni-Cd battery systems for power storage.
The aim was to guarantee operation of critical systems including gas treatment and sulphur plants, telecommunications and satellite systems and consumption in the main building.
With applications including power backup, engine starting and bulk energy storage, Saft’s SBL Ni-Cd batteries offer peace of mind thanks to low maintenance requirements and a long service life of three to 100 hours. The range has been designed with thick electrode plates for applications where the battery is required to provide relatively low current but for a long period.
