Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, recently launched a new service in the United States that allows customers to secure the temporary power needed to support their critical load by renting single- or three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems or stand-alone batteries.

The rental program from Vertiv includes certified equipment with same-day deployment, making it ideal for emergent or planned power needs. For example, customers may need power to get back online quickly following a UPS failure and unplanned outage or they may simply need more power to support a short-term load increase for a planned special event.

“Our customers expressed a need for a solution that allows them to use operating expenses for temporary power needs, and we listened,” said Tom Nation, vice president and general manager of Americas services at Vertiv. “They not only want flexible rental contracts on a variety of UPS units they can trust, but more importantly, they want a team of experts to support that equipment. And that’s what we are offering.”

Customers can choose from a broad selection of UPS systems ranging from 8-750 kVA (including batteries) and can rely on factory-trained technicians for equipment startup, along with preventive and emergency maintenance should a need arise. Vertiv also handles shutdown and equipment pick-up.
