US-based Vertiv, formerly Emerson Network Power, has installed UPS systems in Redland City Council’s new datacentre in Queensland, Australia.
Vertiv’s Liebert APM UPS, with a maximum energy efficiency of up to 96.3% designed for the medium to large-sized industrial applications, has been installed in the 42-square-metre, self-contained facility with a 10-rack capacity.
According to Vertiv, the Liebert APM UPS has four cabinet solutions, including 150kW, 300kW, 400kW, and 600kW, with an ‘eco mode’ efficiency feature of up to 99%.
Vertiv said the critical power supply could help the council better tackle its emergency responses to natural disasters such as fires or storms.
Jointly constructed by Vertiv and Peak Services, the datacentre also features Vertiv’s Liebert CRV cooling unit and the Liebert MPH2 Managed Rack PDU.
Critical Power Online reported in February that Vertiv completed its acquisition of Geist— the privately-owned Nebraska manufacturer of rack power distribution units and datacentre power products.
