Alliance Will Develop Environmentally Friendly UPS

VYCON has announced a strategic alliance with MGE UPS Systems to provide an environmentally friendly, clean energy alternative to traditional Uninterruptible Power Supply systems. Initially, the offering will include MGE’s Comet and Galaxy PW models which will be integrated with Vycon’s VDC system. This unit is a flywheel-based energy storage system that provides a dc voltage source for critical power applications.

The VDC, which can be seamlessly paralleled for higher power requirements, can completely eliminate the need for batteries in traditional UPS applications by providing sufficient ride-through for short duration power outages or until a standby engine-generator can come online.

"This alliance represents an important opportunity for both companies," said Tony Aoun, President and CEO of Vycon. "MGE is a market leader in the UPS industry and working with them will allow us to bring highly reliable green technology to a greater number of companies around the world. As MGE customers are requesting higher reliability and environmentally beneficial systems, MGE will now be able to provide customers with a solution for both concerns through our VDC system"

Herve Tardy, VP Marketing of MGE UPS Systems North America added, "We were very impressed by the Vycon VDC flywheel system and are looking forward to working together to offer our customers a reliable, maintenance free system without the environmental and cost implications of batteries."
