Data Centre Power Through Gas Generation

The need for off-grid data centre power

Finding suitable sites for data centres can be a challenge – logistical, financial and geographical factors all have to be considered among all data centre infrastructure components. But even when these boxes are ticked, often a site can be disregarded as it doesn’t have an adequate electricity supply to power and cool its facilities. 

A data centre will add significant electrical loads to existing electricity infrastructures. Often local distribution networks will need to be upgraded to cope with a new data centre build or expansion. And this will often add time and considerable cost to a project. Invariably, delays occur while the electricity network catches up with its new demand. 

Temporary gas generation

Our latest white paper looks at how temporary power in the form of gas generation can provide power to sites with no grid connection or an inadequate supply. Temporary gas generation offers an effective and reliable solution, providing the data centre power needed to enable new or expanding data centres to become operational – from construction and commissioning to their eventual day-to-day running.
