APC offers foundation power solution - Kleynhans

Continental General Manager for Africa at the American Power Conversion (APC), Mr Carl Kleynhans, has said that the company provides foundation power solution systems through its introduction of Symmetra line up of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).

Speaking on the recent purchase of Symmetra UPS by the Nigerian Aviation Handling Company (NAHCO) Plc, Mr. Kleynhans said that the power company, which is undergoing acquisition processes by Paris-based Schneider Electronics, builds a system to accommodate any kind of power disruptions.

According to him, in a site report made available to our correspondent, “Symmetra is a single unit composed of modular components, providing the foundation of building and scaling near-continuous availability power systems with a flexible range of power capacity.”

He also said that it is available as a tower rack-mount with scalable sizing to meet a growing company’s needs.

The Manager further explained that the scalability of power and runtime offered by this product protects any investment and allows one to meet the power needs at all times.

It would be recalled that NAHCO recently announced the usage of APC power protection products ranging from the backup-UPS 650, Smart 1.5KVA to the Symmetry LX power array and have been consistent users for over fifteen (15) years.

It was gathered that NAHCO made its purchase of APC power solutions from Saap Technology Nigeria Ltd.

Meanwhile, APC, a leading provider of a global and end-to-end solutions provider for real-time infrastructure is in the process of being acquired by an European leader in electrical distribution, industrial control and automation projects, Schneider Electric SA of Paris, to the tune of $6.1 billion.

Disclosing this at the weekend, the two companies said they have executed a definitive merger agreement under which Schneider Electric will acquire all outstanding shares of APC for $31.00 per share in cash which aggregated transaction value is placed at $6.1 billion.

Currently, APC has offices in more than 160 nations worldwide as well as in Nigeria.
