Last year when the epic 2011 “Snowtober” storm knocked out power for Vantis Life Insurance and everyone else in Windsor, Connecticut, Vantis was able to set up a temporary call center courtesy of the business next door. Why? Because that neighbor, LIMRA International, had a standby power system. Vantis Life resolved to be prepared with its own emergency power the next time.
Knowing already how reliable the LIMRA system was, Vantis contracted with the same supplier for their system. Tower Generator, of nearby Canton, Connecticut, installed a 500 kW DFEK generator set from Cummins Power Generation along with a new electrical service. The project, which took 27 days from start to finish, was captured by Tower in thousands of photographs that have been assembled in a 3.5-minute time-lapse video.
You can watch the entire installation on the Cummins Power Generation YouTube channel.
