Active Power (NASDAQ: ACPW), manufacturer of continuous power and
infrastructure solutions, has received an order from HP for two
containerized continuous power systems which will be deployed to support
the HP POD 240a at a datacenter facility in Texas. The two PowerHouseTM
systems are part of a complete modular datacenter and infrastructure
deployment and one of the most innovative and efficient IT solution
packages available on the market today. Both systems will ship by the
end of the year.
The two PowerHouse systems valued at nearly $2 million are each rated at
960 kW and will contain Active Power's high efficiency flywheel based
CleanSource® UPS (uninterruptible power supply) system; switchgear; and
monitoring and controls software. These systems will provide power
conditioning and protection to the HP POD 240a, the world's most energy
efficient modular datacenter, housing servers, storage, networking
equipment, and other resources.
"The PowerHouse solution enables datacenter customers to support IT
capacity at very high efficiencies which result in significant energy
savings," said Martin Olsen, vice president and general manager at
Active Power. "We're also able to deploy critical power infrastructure
onsite in a matter of months compared to a conventional build which
could take up to a year or more. This is due to the fact PowerHouse is
factory built and tested prior to deployment to the site similar to the
HP POD 240a."
