ABB has announced that it will deliver continuous power availability and efficiency savings for Keppel Data Centre’s first project in Indonesia, helping to support major e-commerce and data centre growth throughout the country.
Working together with its local partner, PT Vektordaya Mekatrika, the company is supporting the region’s data centre market by specifying its PowerWave 33 energy-efficient UPS to provide an uninterruptible source of electrical power to IndoKeppel Data Centre 1 (IKDC1), near Jakarta, which is a joint development between local Indonesian conglomerate Salim Group and Keppel Data Centres.
IKDC1 will be developed over three phases in a 7-hectare data centre campus and its first phase will feature a gross floor area of approximately 105,300 square feet. The facility, a high-availability carrier-neutral data centre, will offer future development capacity for clients to scale up their IT infrastructure effectively in Indonesia. When in operation, it will offer concurrent maintainability standards for power and cooling for hyperscale cloud players, financial institutions, and local enterprises.
As the Indonesian colocation data centre market grows, sustainable energy solutions that are scalable will be key to offering further capacity with minimal upfront costs. ABB’s PowerWave 33’s scalable UPS enables the efficient generation of revenues as each new phase opens, making it an ideal solution for companies. It is highly suited for medium-sized data centres, office and building power protection, process automation and other critical processes.
Equipped with an online double conversion UPS, the ABB PowerWave 33 has a small footprint and uses less energy than comparable products, thus delivering significant savings. It offers up to 96 per cent efficiency in double conversion or 99 per cent efficiency in eco-mode across a wide load range.
