Natural Power Solutions celebrates 17 years of success with Eaton

Sydney, Australia: Natural Power Solutions (NPS), a leader in independent power quality and lightning protection services celebrates 17 years of success as an Eaton solutions channel partner, another milestone in the two companies’ lengthy history together.

Both NPS and Eaton provide an extensive range of power solutions across transport and infrastructure, utilities, and industry among others. Mark Sewell, Founder and Managing Director of NPS commented, “Eaton’s solutions have helped us to service the electrical, industrial and data communications market, while also providing bundled services for the more traditional IT and OEM market here in Australia.”

For the past seven years, NPS and Eaton has worked with The Perth Mint to design, implement and maintain a power solution to provide extensive battery back-up for the Mint’s security applications. Using two Eaton power supply devices in conjunction with a generator, The Perth Mint is protected in the event of blackouts, power surges or other equipment failure.

“With security such a critical factor at The Perth Mint, having a continuous power supply is absolutely essential,” says Mark Bridger, Facilities Manager at The Perth Mint. “NPS and Eaton have helped to give us the tools we require to ensure the Mint is safe and secure.”

Most recently, NPS has deployed Eaton’s power quality and power distribution solutions in organisations as diverse as pharmaceutical, clean energy, airport security and critical road transport infrastructure.

As the debate around the future of energy in Australia continues, NPS plans to expand its reach in conjunction with Eaton, focusing on boutique market segments, including the fast-growing pharmaceutical and public sector industries.

John Atherton, General Manager, Power Quality Eaton ANZ says, “In light of recent events such as the South Australian Blackout, there’s never been a more important time to discuss the logistics of power quality and supply. We look forward to working closely with NPS over the coming years to help formulate solutions across a variety of industries.”
