The head of the National Grid has warned British households that blackouts may be imposed this winter.

Due to the consequences of Russia’s war in Ukraine, rolling blackouts could be a possibility for the first time since the 1970s amid the coal miners’ strike and the oil crisis.

Baltic have an ideal solution to help desk-based businesses survive the coming Blackouts

Set on the city’s historic waterfront, Baltic Broadband’s Co-working Desk Space is positioned in the well-established King Edward Industrial Estate, in the heart of Princes Dock. 

The Liverpool City centre location is ideal for the freelancer, budding entrepreneurs, satellite workers, film companies or growing SMEs that need their own space within a 1 minute walk from the Central Business District. It’s also a great space for those who traditionally work from home and would like the opportunity to work in an office environment with the possibility of networking.

We offer both dedicated desks (that are in a large communal space) and dedicated secure self contained offices. 

What’s more, to help survive the predicted blackouts :

  • Each desk and office is protected using a UPS (uninterruptible power supply), meaning that in the event of a power failure, your desk/office in our facility continues to operate
  • We have a large standby generator that powers the entire building, ensuring up to 12 hours of power for the entire facility
  • Our electric car charging points in our own car park will still continue to operate, so customers can recharge their vehicles during power-cuts
  • We have 100Gbps internet connection serving the entire site
  • The government and National Grid have an agreed list of facilities that will be exempt from a power cut – these are known as Protected Sites, Baltic Broadband have already applied for such status.
