Nickel-zinc battery solutions provider, ZincFive, and Stored Energy Systems (SENS), the leader in battery charging solutions for industrial gensets, have announced a new generator starter solution featuring ZincFive’s sustainable nickel-zinc batteries.
Generators are essential for mission-critical backup applications, but the vast majority of backup generators run on fossil fuels, particularly diesel. In order to reduce their carbon footprint, facilities such as data centres are increasingly looking towards alternative fuels to power their backup generators, with batteries one of a number of solutions.
SENS has partnered with ZincFive to offer an innovative plug-and-play generator starter solution as a drop-in replacement option for existing field installations and new OEM generators. ZincFive said that their safe and power-dense nickel-zinc battery offers unparalleled power delivery, a smaller footprint, higher reliability, lower cost, and significant sustainability advantages compared to other battery chemistries.
“We could not be more excited about this partnership with ZincFive,” said Olen Scott, Chief Revenue Officer for SENS. “SENS has been supplying battery chargers to the generator market for over 50 years, and we have not seen a battery that comes close to ZincFive’s in terms of the amount of starting power in such a small, lightweight, green, and robust package. ZincFive’s battery is fully recyclable, made wholly from non-toxic materials, and has a much lower carbon footprint than existing technologies, further supporting our customers in their own ESG initiatives. It comes as no surprise that the response from our customer community to a greener, entirely maintenance-free engine starting module that is backed up by a full 10-year replacement warranty has been extraordinary.”
“As we continue our rapid expansion into various high-power applications – such as data centre UPS – engine starting is a natural fit for the defining attributes of our battery,” said ZincFive Co-founder and CEO Tim Hysell. “SENS is a trusted leader in this segment and has been a great partner throughout the product development and testing phases of our collaboration. We have no doubt that this partnership will make nickel-zinc the preferred battery technology for generator starting.”
