From large data centers to small office buildings, we can safely disconnect and remove all data center, commercial and industrial backup power equipment including diesel and natural gas generators, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), power distribution units (PDU), maintenance bypass cabinets and more.

In addition to comprehensive decommissioning services, we also buy and sell new and used power equipment.

Every Decommissioning Project is Different

A past project left our pleased clients scratching their heads: How did Global Power Supply dismantle an entire building, recover two 1MW generators buried in steel housing cases 20 feet beneath the earth – without a trace of dust – and pay us for the service? We did it with many years of hard-earned experience, and a team capable of creative surgical decommissioning solutions. That’s our business.

Our decommissioning team works diligently to stay on budget, on schedule, and to provide consistent communication throughout every project. We’ll even help our customers to recover maximum value from decommissioned assets with our equipment buyback program.
