Leading Pharmaceutical Company Selects Active Power to Support New Manufacturing Facility
Space Efficiency and Low Total Cost of Ownership Drive UPS Selection for End User

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 10/10/13 -- Active Power (NASDAQ: ACPW), manufacturer of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and modular infrastructure solutions, announced it has shipped more than three megawatts of total rated UPS capacity to one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. The multiple CleanSource® UPS systems shipped in the third quarter of 2013 and will be deployed to support the end user's new drug manufacturing facility in the eastern U.S.

"Our CleanSource UPS product line is uniquely suited to protect highly digitized manufacturing equipment in harsh environments typical of industrial applications," said Martin Olsen, vice president, Global Sales and Marketing, for Active Power. "Our integrated flywheel UPS can be deployed virtually anywhere and in close proximity to the equipment it is protecting due to its rugged, electromechanical design and small footprint. A battery-free technology, the UPS does not require strict temperature control as opposed to a legacy UPS."

A highly energy efficient system, CleanSource UPS operates at up to 98 percent efficiency at full load and up to 96 percent efficiency at partial load and delivers critical backup power in half the space compared to a legacy UPS. The product can also reduce total cost of ownership by up to 60 percent due in part to its high energy efficiency, lower cooling costs, and reduced maintenance requirements compared to a conventional UPS.
