General Electric has launched a turnkey power system module that can be used to expand existing data centres or to provide new and temporary capacity to companies requiring data centre services.
The PowerMOD can be configured with a range of electrical components including automatic transfer switches, switchboards, UPSs and transformers.
The modular containers are available to provide between 200kW to 1500kW back up power and can be commissioned within five months. GE believes this quick deployment will appeal to customers requiring a faster solution than a traditionally built data centre, as well as offering capital savings.
The PowerMOD unit can be cooled with free cooling (via an economiser), direct expansion, chilled water or evaporative cooling.
