Big MTU Data Center Order

By pdamon07 June 2016

Rolls-Royce said it has received an order to supply a total of 23 MTU Onsite Energy emergency generators with an aggregate rating of 57 MW for a data center in Amsterdam. The gen-sets will all be based on the 20-cylinder Series 4000 engine, each producing 2480 kW of electricity. In an emergency, the sets can be run constantly for up to 48 hours, MTU said.

 

The data center is operated by the US company EdgeConneX, which already uses 80 MTU gensets for its standby power requirements at its data centers in the US.

 

The diesel gensets are being supplied with a 30,000 liter fuel tank and will be installed in containers to meet noise control requirements. MTU’s Series 4000 engines meet the EU Stage 3/ Tier 3 emission requirements. MTU said the sets can produce its full electrical output within 15 seconds of start-up, to meet the customer’s project requirements.
