Piller USA, Inc. to supply battery-free rotary UPS technology to new DFT Data Centers in USA.

DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (DFT), a leading owner, developer, operator and manager of wholesale data centers in the United States, has once again chosen Piller USA, Inc. to power and protect its two newest sites.

SC1 - Santa Clara, California
One of the two new data centers planned to be constructed on 17.2 acres of land in Santa Clara, California. Upon completion, SC1 will comprise 360,000 gross square feet, 176,200 of which will be raised floor, with an aggregate critical load of 36.4 MW. Construction is designed in two phases, with 18.2 MW per phase. Piller USA, Inc. shall supply sixteen (16) 1670kVA battery-free rotary UBT modules for Phase 1 of SC1.

ACC6 - Ashburn, Virginia
ACC6 will be developed in two phases on approximately 30.4 acres of land at the Ashburn Corporate Center in Virginia. Once fully built out, the two phases of the 230,000+ gross square feet facility will have an aggregate critical load of 31.2 MW. Piller USA, Inc. shall supply twelve (12) 1670kVA battery-free rotary UBT modules for Phase 1 of ACC6.

In 2008, Piller supplied DFT with a total of sixty-four (64) 1670kVA UBT battery-free rotary UBT modules for the following data centers:

CH1-Elk Grove Village, IL. Phase 1 comprises approximately 121,000 square feet of raised floor with a critical load of 18.2 MW divided among 16 computer rooms. CH1 Phase II will consist of approximately 90,000 square feet of raised floor, with a critical load of 18.2 MW.

ACC5 – Ashburn, VA. Ground up development began in 2008, with Phase I delivered in September 2009 and Phase II scheduled to be delivered in Q4 2010. Prospective tenants can lease one or multiple combinations of dedicated rooms with 568.75 kW, 1,137.5 kW, or 2,275 kW of critical power. ACC5 will be a 360,000 square foot facility that offers more than 176,200 square feet of raised floor space.

NJ1 – Piscataway, NJ. NJ1 will be developed in two phases on approximately 38.1 acres of land in Piscataway, New Jersey, which is located less than 30 miles from New York City. NJ1 will comprise approximately 360,000 gross square feet with 176,200 of which will be raised floor, with an aggregate critical load of 36.4 MW.

In 2007, Piller completed their first DFT facility located in Ashburn, VA supplying thirty-two (32) 1670kVA UBT modules each with associated switchgear and standby diesel generator sets. Known as ACC4 , this data center is considered to be DFT’s prototype for future ground-up development. Owing to its’ enhanced power capacity and flexible design, both smaller and larger tenants can be accommodated in a single facility, providing them with a total of 36.4 megawatts of power.

All systems supplied to the Dupont facilities are stand-alone rotary ups units designed to work in co-operation with conventional standby generation sets, thereby offering additional flexibility for maintenance and operation over diesel rotary solutions. The overall UPS topology uses the Isolated Parallel bus concept. However, the UBT rotary ups module can be configured as either a battery-free system, or with batteries and is available in both non-diesel and diesel rotary versions.
