NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Bay St. Louis, MS, is NASA’s primary site for rocket propulsion testing. It is also home to the Applied Research and Technology Project Office (ARTPO), which supplies project management to support NASA’s science and technology goals. Recently, Stennis awarded Lee Technologies a contract to construct a centralized uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and emergency generator. Under the terms of the contract, Lee Technologies will partner with Z Corporation in Burlington, MA, to construct the power complex at Stennis.

Slated for completion by September 2008, the UPS will enable system redundancy and power efficiency. The project includes the demolition of seven existing generator and UPS systems and locates all functions into one centralized power complex. The complex will have 6 megawatts (MW) of capacity, parallel switch gear, and a 675-kilowatt battery plant.
