As one of India's major power conditioning and backup solutions providers, Consul Neowatt's role in powering businesses across the nation is becoming more significant with every innovation they introduce
In a nation that is still struggling to provide reliable power to businesses and organizations, the use of UPS has now become a norm in the industry. One of the major enablers of this is Consul Neowatt, a manufacturing power back-up solution provider with operations spanning the last 30 years. With over three decades of field expertise and a deep understanding of India’s power generation challenges, Consul Neowatt is today the country’s leading power electronics brand.
It is also one of the only companies to offer a full range of power backup and power electronics products in the B2B market. As an Indian company, Consul Neowatt is a viable alternative to MNCs. The company’s vision is to become the preferred power partner for customers by offering cost effective, innovative, energy efficient, and reliable products, services and solutions.
It is the only Indian company with integrated capabilities from R&D, manufacturing, sales, and service. The company has also invested heavily in R&D, manufacturing, and service infrastructure apart from ERP/CRM systems to ensure that it can scale the business seamlessly.
The new products launched over the last five years have been well received in the market. The company has achieved market leadership position in products such as active harmonic filters and large solar inverters with energy storage. The Falcon UPS range has proven itself as one of the most reliable three-phase UPS systems in the market, which provides power backup for a variety of industries. The three-phase UPS portfolio has been growing 50% year-on-year by gaining market share from MNCs, and this has been instrumental in Consul Neowatt becoming the fastest-growing UPS company in India.
With increasing automation and digitization, every industry in India needs clean, reliable power for uninterrupted business operations. Such industries include manufacturing & plant automation, healthcare & hospitals, IT, small & medium businesses, hospitality and hotels, media & entertainment, and government & infrastructure projects. Consul Neowatt has enjoyed the trust and confidence of the who’s who of these sectors, and more. “Over the years, Consul has met the exacting standards on product quality, as well as the after-sales service demands, that are the pre-requisites for any supplier of Wipro GE," said V. Raja, President and CEO, South Asia, of GE Healthcare.
Consul Neowatt has translated its deep understanding of the challenging power conditions in India into innovative products and solutions that are tailor made and optimized for each application. A good example is the Falcon UPS supplied for a critical application at L&T MHI manufacturing plant. Previously, other imported UPS had failed to handle the regenerative power from the machines protected by the UPS.
Further, the company is proud to support nation building by supplying seismically qualified UPS to BARC (Bhabha Atomic Research Centre). Today, Consul Neowatt is among the few companies globally with the capability to design and manufacture seismically qualified UPS.
The company has been chosen as the power partner by leading MNCs to support their Make in India programs. These include Komatsu’s truck and construction equipment manufacturing facility with over 1000kva of UPS as well as India’s largest mobile manufacturing unit of Foxconn, with over 1,500 kVA of UPS.
Apart from the manufacturing sector, the company has a strong presence in the healthcare segment. The company has developed special UPS features to meet the stringent requirements during scanning of diagnostic imaging equipment such as MRI, CT, Cath labs. It has also received approvals from all leading diagnostic imaging equipment suppliers.
Additionally, Consul Neowatt has also supplied 98% energy efficient power backup solutions for process industries like plastics, printing and packaging. The Pelican Offline UPS can work without an air conditioner and delivers large saving in power bills for 7x24 process industries.
The company is also actively working on several of the smart city and infrastructure projects through System Integrators and EPCs.
With 300+ factory-trained company service engineers in over 80 locations, the company boasts one of the largest pan-India service networks. The company has leveraged technology smartly to enable better customer experience through a 7x365 multilingual service call centre and a mobile app that gives customers 24/7 facility to log in service requests. An app on the smartphones of each service engineer allows real-time service reports to be emailed to the customer after a service call, for transparency and peace of mind.
Today, the company is a clear alternative for clients looking for leading technology and value for their investment when it comes to UPS solutions, with the lowest total cost of ownership.
