RMD targets growth with renewed focus on power protection

RMD small


RMD Ltd has announced that it is energetically aiming to double its turnover within three years by capitalising on its profitable power protection specialism.

Formerly known as RMD Power and Cooling, the business has also rebranded and launched a re-designed corporate identity and website to reflect its new strategic direction.

The Alloa-based company plans to drive growth through its core business – the supply, installation and maintenance of power protection systems. While it will continue to offer IT facility solutions it will no longer prioritise the large scale datacentre design and build projects which have been a key focus in recent years.

RMD Power & Cooling awarded NHS framework agreement

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

RMD Power and Cooling has been awarded a Buying Solutions NHS Building and Engineering Maintenance Services framework agreement for UPS and generators for the NHS in England.

Buying Solutions is the national procurement partner for all UK public services and is part of the Efficiency and Reform Group within the Cabinet Office. The framework covers maintenance of UPS and generators in the NHS in the following English regions: South West, London, East Midlands, West Midlands, South Central, South East Coast, North East, North West, and East.

A leading force in the provision of innovative, integrated power and cooling solutions, RMD Power and Cooling has a powerful reputation in the industry. It is also one of only a handful of UK companies that can supply, install and maintain power and cooling solutions.

According to John Smykala, Managing Director of RMD Power and Cooling, a regular health check is a must for any organisation relying on a fully functioning UPS system.

He says: “Regular maintenance is a wise investment that can add years to the life of your UPS and generators, saving you money overall. As winter approaches and the risk of power failure increases, you must be able to trust and rely on your backup power systems to support critical services.”

RMD Power and Cooling wins six figure maintenance contract for Atkins

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

Atkins, the UK’s largest engineering and design consultancy, has awarded RMD Power and Cooling a three year contract to maintain power protection equipment at all of its UK sites.

The project, which is worth over £200k, will standardise the provision of Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) at the company’s 87 UK locations. It is the first time that maintenance of Atkins UPS equipment has been consolidated and RMD won the contract in a competitive tender process after outlining a detailed solution for the large and complex project.

The maintenance programme will begin with a dedicated RMD engineer carrying out a “health check” on every existing UPS. New batteries will be installed on all UPSs over three years old and faulty equipment will be repaired or replaced. The Atkins estate will be completely standardised with APC UPSs.

All of RMD’s engineers are approved to install and service APC equipment and following standardisation, the company will provide ongoing maintenance, guaranteeing a four-hour response service for Atkins’ high priority sites.

John Smykala, RMD’s Managing Director, says: “Atkins required an end to end solution to organise and maintain their UPS systems. The health check will reveal exactly what equipment is being used and the standardisation process will simplify management of this technology. Our warehousing capacity also allows us to hold “hot spares” for Atkins so we can repair and replace UPSs straight away, rather than waiting for delivery from manufacturers.”

Atkins was established in 1938 and offers specialist services in planning, engineering sciences, architecture and project management. The company has a turnover of £1.4 billion and has offices throughout Europe, Asia Pacific, the Americas, the Middle East and India. It is the official engineering design services provider for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Paul Hayes, Project Manager at Atkins, says: “RMD provided a solution that met our needs both in terms of value for money and attention to detail. The company has a strong track record in this area and was a clear winner in the tender process.

“RMD are known for their personal approach and it is important that we have a single point of contact, whatever the problem. I know that if I have a question or problem I can pick up the phone and the person I’m talking to will know my site and know our history.”

RMD is a leading force in the provision of innovative, integrated power and cooling solutions for data centres in the UK and Europe. The company has a powerful reputation in the industry and is one of only a handful of UK companies that can design, supply, install and maintain power and cooling.

Working in the public and private sector, for global brands as well as the SME, RMD’s clients include the NHS, Cairn Energy, Amazon and National Air Traffic Services.
