Vancouver, B.C.’s Portable Electric (PE) is preparing to launch the world’s largest mobile battery power system, the VOLTstack 200k, which will deliver up to 200kW of power, with a 250kW surge, from a massive 400kWh of battery storage.
“This level of power represents large-scale change in the global film industry,” said Mark Rabin, founder and CEO of PE. “We are building the most robust, mobile and powerful battery power station the world has ever seen. It will be strong, yet silent, and able to replace tow plants and generators, while integrating seamlessly with existing VOLTstack products in the field today.”
The VOLTstack 200k is the next natural step in the line of VOLTstack products that add versatility and efficiency to the film industry. Its 2k, 5k and 20k models have been used by some of the world’s largest film productions and sold to production companies, such as NBC Universal and Warner Bros., as well as rental companies like Cinelease and Sim International.
“The VOLTstack is one of the most positive steps forward in movie sound in recent years. Since the first film with sound, the noise of diesel generators has created problems,” said industry veteran Simon Hayes, known for his Oscar and BAFTA-winning work on Les Misérables, Fantastic Beasts and the latest Bond 25. “The VOLTstack is silent, meaning generators can be close to set, helping you hear the actor’s original performance. All this while reducing harmful emissions. The VOLTstack is a win-win.”
