Gas Engine Power System: Green Alternative for Backup Diesel Generators


Critical Power North America – Thursday, August 4th

Adam Rajewski, Data Center Technology Manager, Wartsila Energy Solutions

This session is provide a concept of using on-site natural gas-fired combustion engine plant for emergency data center power supply. Such a plant would normally operate as a normal flexible generating station, but at the same time ensure uninterrupted availability of emergency power to a data center in case it is needed, fully replacing traditional diesel generators. The session contains results of economic simulations and technical studies, which conclusively demonstrate that this approach may lead to financial benefits for both data center and power plant operators, while reducing overall data center environmental footprint.
