UPS Developer Receives Order for Diesel/Flywheel System

Active Power has received an order from a European customer for Containerized Mobile Power systems delivering a total of 7.6 MW of power. Each Diesel Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system contains Active Power’s 1500iC flywheel-based UPS system, switchgear and 1.9 MW diesel generator. All of these components will be housed in acoustic containers for flexible mobile deployment. The packaging includes redundant engine starting systems integrating Active Power’s GenSTART module.

“This solution was a perfect fit for our customer requirements,” said Jim Murphy, vice president for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific for Active Power. “The modularity of our extensively field proven units, their inherent space efficiency and operating temperature range played a big factor in the customer’s decision making process and the selection of Active Power. We are the only supplier that can integrate UPS redundancy with a single engine and eliminate the common failure points of Diesel UPS solutions in this size of package. We are delighted our units will be protecting one of the world’s largest data processing operators.”
