Power and emergency power supply
Functional tests involving power cut-off are conducted twice a year from 05:00 a.m. to 06:00 a.m.
Devices that are supplied by a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) are not affected by the shutdown.
An interruption of the cold water supply is to be expected as a result of the power cut. The refrigeration network circulation pumps continue to run on emergency power, but the cold water flow temperature can rise up to approx. 10° C.
Should you have technical problems or questions, you can contact the Leitwarte (control room) of Ulm University at any time.
All institutions are informed annually about the dates by way of a circular letter.
