Piller to backup Global Foundries’ business expansion in China

April 4, 2018

Germany-based UPS specialist Piller Group has been awarded a contract to supply backup power systems to a “$10 billion” semiconductor development centre in China.


Piller’s 20MVA UNIBLOCK Diesel Rotary UPS will be used to power protect a “FD-SOI ecosystem”— a semiconductor design and development centre jointly developed by US-headquartered Global Foundries’ (GF) and China’s Chengdu municipality.


GF and Chengdu formed the partnership last year to help GF expand its semiconductor market in China.


Palaniappan Muthuraman, managing director of Piller China, said: "This new contract, which extends Piller’s ongoing worldwide partnership with Global Foundries, is also a major boost for our operations in China."


Aaron Qin, Piller’s local representative in China, said the original UNIBLOCKsolution was designed for mission critical banking and finance applications. However, it is also “perfectly suited” to industrial applications such as semiconductor production.
