Vancouver Company To Produce World’s Largest Mobile Battery Power System

Film industry to receive major “green” boost as Portable Electric, a technology company and Canada’s premier manufacturer of electric generators, prepares to launch first 200kW system.

VANCOUVER, JUNE 25, 2019 – Portable Electric (PE), a technology company, global leader in portable renewable energy systems and manufacturer of the VOLTstack® power stations – a leading alternative to gas and diesel generators – is preparing to launch the world’s largest mobile battery power system.

The VOLTstack® 200k will deliver up to 200kW of power, with a 250kW surge, from a massive 400kWh of battery storage – all on a highly mobile platform.

“This level of power represents large-scale change in the global film industry,” said Mark Rabin, founder and CEO of PE. “We are building the most robust, mobile and powerful battery power station the world has ever seen. It will be strong, yet silent, and able to replace tow plants and generators, while integrating seamlessly with existing VOLTstack® products in the field today.”

The VOLTstack® 200k is the next natural step in the line of VOLTstack® products that add versatility and efficiency to the film industry. Its 2k, 5k and 20k models have been used by some of the world’s largest film productions and been sold to production companies, such as NBC Universal and Warner Bros., as well as rental companies like Cinelease and Sim International.

“The VOLTstack is one of the most positive steps forward in movie sound in recent years. Since the very first film with sound, the noise of diesel generators has created problems,” said industry veteran Simon Hayes, known for his Oscar and BAFTA-winning work on “Guardians of the Galaxy”, “Fantastic Beasts” and the latest “Bond 25”. “The VOLTstack is silent, meaning generators can be close to set, helping you hear the actor’s original performance. All this while reducing harmful emissions. The VOLTstack is a win-win.”

Out-competing today’s large diesel generators, this state-of-the-art battery system will ensure the film industry can address the growing drive towards sustainability, while simultaneously cutting costs through higher efficiency and minimal maintenance. For the first time the industry will be able to use battery electricity for EV charging; all forms of production trailers and on set power for extensive lighting; and cranes and cameras as a result of the VOLTstack® 200k’s completely silent operation, high power output and battery capacity.

The VOLTstack® 200k will be a ‘smart’ product, making on set power management simpler and more efficient through real-time diagnostics, GPS location tracking and online data accessible through the app. The VOLTstack® 200k will seamlessly integrate with and enhance the already existing VOLTstack® ecosystem of products owned by lighting technicians and production houses across the world. It will enable fast-charging for the VOLTstack 2k, 5k and 20k units, ensuring continued, reliable clean energy on set.
