Busch Gardens recently decided to purchase PS&C static Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems to support their amusement park operations. The Continuum UPS systems will be less than 100kVA, and will be used throughout the park. Busch Gardens was initially developed as a marketing vehicle for Anheuser-Busch and featured hospitality houses with samples of Anheuser-Busch products. They also included stables that housed many of the company’s Clydesdale horses, which have been associated with Anheuser-Busch since 1933.

Eventually, rides and attractions were added to the park and over time the park was developed into full theme park while still promoting Anheuser-Busch. Busch Entertainment Corporation, now called SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, was created as a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch Companies to run the various parks in 1959. Power Systems & Controls looks forward to supporting another Virginia corporation, and we can’t wait to visit the park this summer!

Power Systems & Controls has a state of the art production and test facility located in Richmond, VA allowing for easy access to Washington, DC and the east coast. PS&C has the unique ability to support both static (solid-state) and rotary (motor generator) UPS, frequency converter, and power conditioning requirements as we are one of the few companies in the world that manufactures both types of technology. Power Systems & Controls is an employee owned company and has a long history of successfully supporting mission critical applications across the world. PS&C – The Power Is On!
