Planned Power Outage for 17/11/22
Following on from our last announcement we will be without power next Thursday (17th November) as our new UPS system is scheduled for installation. If you need to contact us on the day please be aware our phones may be down for some/most of the day but we will have limited access to email and video calls. We thank you in advance for your understanding.
Once installed, the backup battery system will give us 5 hours of running time with our facility running at 100% (i.e. all chambers and systems running at 100% simultaneously) and an extra level of protection from any grid instability in terms of spikes. We will also have dedicated backup generators for each of our chambers installed in the coming weeks but this work will not affect our office or normal lines of customer communication.
Prices for 2023
Our main chamber day rates and standard outgassing charges have not changed since 2017 and 2018 respectively but for 2023 we will be adding a 10% increase to both the chamber day rate and outgassing charges. Please be aware that we will honour currently quoted work at the old rate, but new quotes for the end of 2022 and going into the new year will be at this new rate.
For our solar simulators which can be a much longer lead time it has been a challenge to keep up with the material price changes, particularly for key components. In 2023 we will be conducting an overhaul of our solar simulator range in terms of pricing and models available, so if you would like a quote for a system please be aware there may be some delay while this is done.
As always, we are hugely appreciative of our customers both new and old and are thankful for your understanding.
