Kapitol Group were looking for a low carbon solution to power on-site tower cranes, amenities and switchboards on their Microsoft data centre construction site in Victoria. They were struggling to find a reliable source of temporary power that also aligned with the company’s sustainability vision and values.
Blue Diamond Machinery supplied Kapitol Group with two AMPD Enertainer BESS to replace diesel as the primary source of temporary power on-site.
Either supplementing or completely replacing large diesel generators, the Enertainer provides a clean, consistent source of power with less diesel fumes, noise and CO2 emissions. It is specially designed to handle the surging load demands of construction equipment like tower cranes, delivering a reliable power source without the risk of generator underloading or glazing. The unit only calls on a small backup generator to charge the battery intermittently, allowing Kaptiol Group to meet their efficiency and carbon reduction targets.
AMPD’s Enertainer unit provided Kapitol Group with a reliable, low emission power source for 3 of their on-site tower cranes. The Enertainer’s lithium-ion battery technology ensured a constant power source, minimising the risk of downtime due to generator maintenance, while lowering on-site noise and CO2 emissions.
Opting to use BESS like the Enertainer also aligns with Kapitol Group’s key vision and values around sustainability.
