Reliable power supply and back-up are critical in the Utilities sector. Utilities such as Oil & Gas, Water and Power all play crucial roles in everyday society. A failure to perform can have disastrous consequences. Therefore, decision-makers in the Utilities sector must be able to source a battery or system that will outperform expectations, especially in today’s technology-driven society.
Battery Power Supply And Back-up For Utilities
Reliable power supply and back-up are critical in the Utilities sector. Utilities such as Oil & Gas, Water and Power all play crucial roles in everyday society. A failure to perform can have disastrous consequences. Therefore, decision- makers in the Utilities sector must be able to source a battery or system that will outperform expectations, especially in today’s technology-driven society. Selecting the right type of battery technology is a large component of any battery-powered project; whether it’s for an Oil or Gas Wellhead, SCADA systems, Telemetry systems, Penstocks Water Monitoring or a Standby UPS system for back-up power in a power station.

Our Process And Expertise
A large part of our commitment to excellence is to always work collaboratively with you. Our team strives to provide valuable technical advice when scoping projects for new clients as well as an ongoing basis. During initial consultations, we will discuss the following details to determine which type of battery technology is best suited for your speciﬁc project requirements.
- Expected battery operating temperatures
- Design life
- Weight constraints
- Conﬁguration requirements (monobloc, front terminals, combo cell, etc.)
- Installation parameters
- Features and beneﬁts of different battery technologies
- System design
At Valen, we can also help you with system designs if required. Our experts will look at speciﬁc objectives and advise on which components will be most effective at getting the job done. To ensure the integrity of a system design and that everything works effectively together, Valen supplies the required batteries as well as any supporting equipment, including:
- Solar Panels and Batteries

Meeting commissioning deadline is, of course, a considerable concern for anyone working on a battery energy project. So, you can plan your projects with conﬁdence. Valen permanently keeps stock on hand of commonly used battery sizes and conﬁgurations, so they are readily available when you need them most. We also have stringent systems and processes in place to ensure we can always meet delivery timelines we’ve agreed to for your project deadline.
Once we’ve helped you decide on the correct batteries for your project, we will provide best practice recommendations for the installation phase.
Our Installation and Operation (I&O) manuals make it easy for your technicians to install our batteries correctly. Additionally, we will always be available to answer any installation questions your technicians may have.
Servicing And Maintenance
Maintaining battery life is key to ensuring your battery system serviceability is never compromised. We can assist with ongoing servicing, maintenance and testing to ensure your batteries always operate within warranty conditions.
We can also provide advice on how to extend the life of a battery beyond the warranty to ensure you get the best possible ROI.
Not only does our team assist with the maintenance side of the battery systems, we offer a complete training package to upskill your team and a range of quick and easy battery maintenance tools, such as:
- Battery Load Testers
- Battery Impedance Testers
- Battery Torque Wrenches
As our level of service to you extends beyond ﬁnal installation, we can further assist with recycling end-of-life batteries. In keeping with our ISO 14001:2015 Environment certiﬁcation, we can also help with how to best recycle old or existing batteries if you are replacing a current system with our products.
