A mobile UPS is not a diesel generator

In contrast to the classic emergency power generator that everyone knows, a dynamic UPS with diesel engine has a built-in kinetic flywheel which supplies the connected installations with a continuous and pure voltage. Thanks to this combination of kinetic energy storage with a diesel engine, both very short micro cuts and longer breakdowns can be accommodated fully automatically and without interruption. Because the diesel engine does not run continuously but only starts at longer interruptions, such a dynamic UPS is much more environmentally friendly than an emergency power generator.

Want to now how such a dynamic UPS works?

Why a mobile UPS?

Any company with a UPS installation will sooner or later find itself in a situation where the permanent backup capacity is not sufficient or temporarily unavailable.

Such as

  • Major maintenance works or expansions of your existing fixed UPS installation
  • Downtime or replacement of your existing UPS system
  • Temporary need for more UPS power
  • Installation of a new UPS
  • Disaster recovery
  • Large events

For all these – planned or unforeseen – situations, Luminus Solutions has a fleet of mobile UPS containers ready to be quickly brought on site and fully deployed in your current infrastructure. Our containers temporarily take over the function of your existing system without sacrificing operational reliability. Your critical users remain fully protected against power failures, just as with your fixed (dynamic) UPS.

If required, we can study the full integration of the mobile system into your existing infrastructure and develop the appropriate switching procedures to ensure a seamless changeover.

Do you already have a diesel generator? No problem, our systems can also be used as a ride through system. Connected to your own diesel group, your existing emergency power infrastructure can be transformed into a fully-fledged uninterruptible power supply temporarily and for as long as necessary.

Securing all critical processes

Some companies have processes that are so critical that even the slightest dip or interruption in the power supply can cause major problems or losses. And then a classic emergency power supply does not offer sufficient protection.

After all, starting up an emergency power group in the event of a power failure takes about 10 seconds, which is never fast enough for critical processes as these processes are 100% dependent on pure and continuous power. Think of data centres, operating theatres, intensive care, air traffic control, pharmaceutical or high-tech production processes. The slightest power outage here can cost an enormous amount of money and even human lives.


Uninterruptible power supply ensures data processing and facility reliability when the regular power supply fails, so that datacenters are always up and running.

Air Traffic

A UPS system can prevent potentially catastrophic power outages in air traffic control and ground support systems.

Road infrastructure

Uninterruptible power supply in road and railway tunnels to ensure life safety, lighting and air handling systems in the event of a power outage or unstable grid quality.

Pharmaceutical industry

Clean and stable power to protect sensitive equipment and prevent losses in pharmaceutical manufacturing processes and controls.


Continuous power to ensure safe processing and transport of large amounts of information and data consumed by telecom users worldwide.


Continuous and clean power for mission-critical military operations such as missile defence, radar systems, surveillance and command and control centers.

Health Care

Efficient and uninterrupted power supply for operating rooms, imaging, health information systems, digital sensors, etc. can literally mean the difference between life and death.

High-Tech Manufacturing

Clean and stable power to protect very sensitive processes, to maintain a constant temperature and humidity and to ensure a sterile production environment.


Uninterruptible protection of engines and pump systems in oil, gas and water supply to ensure a non-stop production in a safe environment.
