VIVAS / a replacement power unit


VIVAS is a replacement power unit for the power supply in case of power failure. Through various means of trans- port (train, truck, helicopter) the unit can be carried in the crisis area. There it can supply power to the affected ar- eas until the original electricity infrastructure works again. The stored energy in the aggregate comes from renew- able energy sources.
