The US Department of State has awarded Invensys Powerware Corp. (Raleigh, NC), a unit of Invensys plc (London, England), three multiple-award, five-year contracts, worth as much as $125.0 million, to ensure reliable power access at the Department's 270 consulate and embassy posts worldwide. The announcement is a result of US State Department efforts to modernize posts with the latest technology in power systems equipment.

The contracts include the delivery of power security hardware, including uninterruptible power systems (UPS), 50Hz/60Hz generators, generator set overhauls, power transformers, transfer switches and automatic voltage regulators, as well as a complete portfolio of end-to-end services. As part of its end-to-end service package, Powerware will provide project management, engineering, power audits, installation, systems integration, training and on-site maintenance.

“US government installations both at home and abroad depend on uninterrupted access to high-quality power,” stated Scott Dysert, vice president, Powerware Global Services. “By ensuring the highest level of power reliability and availability for their mission-critical applications, our systems will help State Department posts around the world achieve their operational goals.”
