Lionheart on Track to be King of Power

By John Fanning

When a major hospital and trauma center in Alaska began experiencing intermittent failure on more than one of their Automatic Transfer Switches (ATS) feeding critical load, real concern quickly spread through their facility staff. Alaska has been known to experience some harsh weather and extreme temperatures. They also, on average, experience 12,000 earthquakes each year, including about six that come in a magnitude of 6 and 7. At magnitudes like that, even well-constructed buildings can experience partial collapse and be shifted off their foundation. Needless to say, Alaska is a place where every critical facility has to have emergency power ready to go at every moment of every day.

Plenty of parts are ready for projects, throughout the Chicagoland area
