Our banking client had a 6-generator system providing backup power to their data centre. Each system provided 1 MW, 1250 kVA.
The system had become outdated and parts had become obsolete which prevented necessary repairs and servicing from being carried out to keep the system current and reliable.
Following a rigorous survey, a 5-year programme was developed to upgrade the full backup power provision.
Some of the generators were replaced with modern components and made fit for purpose.
Replacement of obsolete components, on otherwise good generators, was a cost-effective solution to extend the life of parts of the backup power systems.
