The Greenbrier recently decided to go with Power Systems & Controls and purchase a set of Series MC Hybrid Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems to protect their critical operations. This Series MC will be the first PS&C Product installed at the Greenbrier. The Greenbrier is a 4 Star and 5 Diamond Award winning luxury resort located just outside the town of White Sulphur Springs in West Virginia. In 1858, a hotel – the first building was built on the property to cater to influential northerners and southerners alike. In 1913, a new building was built and named The Greenbrier and this new name was adopted for the entire resort.

The Greenbrier is most known and famous for its role in being the Congressional shelter during the Cold War. In the late 1950’s, the USG approached The Greenbrier for assistance in creating a secret emergency relocation center to house Congress in the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust. The classified, underground facility, named “Project Greek Island”, was built at the same time as the West Virginia Wing, an above-ground addition to the hotel.

Although the bunker was kept stocked with supplies for (30) years, it was never actually used as an emergency location, even during the Cuban Missile Crisis. The bunker’s existence was not acknowledged until The Washington Post revealed it in a 1992 story. The facility was decommissioned as a bunker, and has since been renovated and is used as a data storage facility for private sector entities. It is featured in an attraction in which visitors can tour the now declassified facilities, known as The Bunker.
