You provide your customers with a 99.999% uptime guarantee, standard in the industry. Your company may also be supporting multi-tenancy computing, co-location, and facilitating new platforms around cloud computing and virtualization. These platforms have new power requirements. Average power consumption at the rack is going up and more power needs to be available to support growth and backup/emergency power supplies.
Generac Industrial Power responds to these challenges with genset systems that deliver the best available technology with massive kWs and a support network offering industry-leading expertise.
Been There, Done That
Continuous duty, onsite power is one of the key factors that is required for data centers to obtain Tier III or Tier IV certification from the Uptime Institute. Continuous power is used for applications where there is no utility power and the generator set is relied upon to supply a constant load for an unlimited number of hours annually such as remote power stations or co-location facilities. Generac provides a range of solutions that have been used nationwide in Tier Certified facilities.
BACK IT UP WITH GENERAC'S MPS
Generac’s proven Modular Power System (MPS) for paralleling generators offers data centers the power, redundancy, scalability, and safety required. One of the key advantages is that you can specify the backup system for the power you need now, not in future. This allows you to spend more of your initial capital on servers and other equipment. And, as you power needs grow, it’s easy to “add on” another generator to meet your growing needs.
The MPS approach does not require paralleling controls in dedicated third-party switchgear, so expansion generators can either simply tie directly to the generator bus, or to a breaker on that bus. And the generators do not have to be next to each other on a pad to be paralleled, so you can spread the field and your potential risk.
In addition, our MPS allows you to combine fuel options: diesel, natural gas, or even bi-fuel. This not only gives you have the benefits of genset redundancy, you also have fuel redundancy. And natural gas relies on a strong underground pipeline network that is rarely impacted by weather or other crisis events—providing another critical advantage.
