Paddington Green Custody Suite, in West Central London, is to become 'greener' with the installation of a Powerstar voltage optimisation system.

The installation will be part of the second contract awarded by the Metropolitan Police to Rotherham-based EMSc (UK) Ltd which will see voltage optimisation systems fitted into an additional 13 police stations across the UK's capital. Installation of the first Powerstar system commenced in October 2010.

Powerstar will enable the police stations to run more cost-effectively by reducing the amount of energy used, also cutting the level of carbon emissions emitted.

Powerstar designer and managing director of EMSc (UK) Dr Alex Mardapittas commented, "Whether you are running a custody suite like the Metropolitan Police or something less sensitive in the manufacturing or retail sector, you still need the electrical supply to plant and equipment to be secure. By delivering only the voltage that is actually needed and through smoothing out the harmonic distortions that's exactly what Powerstar delivers.

Voltage optimisation is a cost efficient way to control a building's incoming voltage in order to maximise energy savings. Powerstar is the most efficient voltage optimisation system in the world. It can save up to 26.1% of total electricity consumption and related CO2 emissions, all without compromising the supply to electrical equipment.
