The Department of the US Air Force (USAF) Directorate of Contracting has awarded a $73.2m firm-fixed-price power supply equipment maintenance contract to Pergravis.

The contract is valid for five and a half years and involves emergency and preventative uninterruptable power supply (UPS) system maintenance services being provided to government facilities globally.

Pergravis will deliver the services through the Power Conditioning and Continuation Interface Equipment (PCCIE) programme office in Ogden, Utah, US.

The PCCIE contract vehicle is designed to serve as a single agency resource for all federal agencies to source maintenance services for their UPS systems, batteries and associated critical electrical infrastructure.

Pergravis managing director Steve Ritzi said: “As UPS systems become more sophisticated, we believe the original equipment manufacturers (OEM) service delivery model is the future of the industry.

“At Pergravis, we provide a single point-of-contact for every federal agency that engages through the PCCIE contract vehicle. We’re certified data centre experts, superior problem-solvers and provide unparalleled, mission-driven customer service to make sure the job gets done well, correctly and in a timely fashion.”

“As part of the contract, the company will provide support for 700 uninterruptable power supply systems across every airforce major command.”

Pergravis formed partnerships with OEMs to provide UPS emergency and preventative maintenance services under the programme.

The contract also involves the delivery of enhanced services, including component repair and replacement on an as-needed basis.

Pergravis managing director Dominick Rappa said: “The criticality of the mission we support is always front and centre; it is core to all we do. In partnership with our OEM UPS service providers, we have assembled a world-class team of trained and certified technical resources that possess total mastery of their individual power products.

“There is simply no better service solution available to ensure the uptime of mission-critical electrical equipment.”

As part of the contract, the company will provide support for 700 uninterruptable power supply systems across every airforce major command. Work is expected to be completed by 13 April 2024.
