Nightingale hospitals running on GS Yuasa batteries

Published:  22 April, 2020

GS Yuasa is contributing to the fight against Coronavirus by supplying power to the NHS Nightingale hospitals and other key medical projects.

Since the beginning of the outbreak, GS Yuasa have supplied Yuasa-branded uninterruptible power supply (UPS) system batteries to the new NHS Nightingale hospitals, including London, Birmingham Manchester, Bristol, Glasgow and Newcastle, which will treat COVID-19 patients.

Yuasa VRLA (valve regulated lead acid) batteries are used as standby backup power in UPS systems which ensure the power remains on in the event of a mains electricity failure. The batteries are supplied directly to customers who are installing the UPS systems on site.

James Hylton, Managing Director of GS Yuasa Battery Sales UK Ltd, said: “The enormous impact of Coronavirus has been felt by individuals and businesses around the world. We are proud that our batteries have been chosen to back up these key NHS Nightingale hospitals and humbled that because of the quality of our batteries we are able to make a small contribution to the national effort.”

The company has also supplied thousands of Yuasa-branded VRLA batteries for use in critical infrastructure nationwide, including other medical facilities. Most Yuasa batteries supplied for these projects have been produced at GS Yuasa’s UK manufacturing facility in Ebbw Vale, South Wales.
