Rolls-Royce delivers 9-MW emergency power solution to bank data center near Madrid

Eight mtu emergency generator sets safeguard power supply in data center of major Spanish bank.

Rolls-Royce has installed and commissioned eight mtu emergency gensets with 9.2 MWe power output at a major bank in the vicinity of Madrid. The gensets will secure power supply to the bank's data center should public power grid fail.

The overall solution consists of two types of mtu-brand diesel generator set: four mtu 12-cylinder 4000 DS1650 units, each with 1,425 MWe power output, and four 16-cylinder mtu 2000 DS1100 units, each with 880 MWe power output. “For the customer, the reliability of the power supply takes precedence. That's why they opted for the mtu brand,” said Pablo Vivancos, head of mtu-product sales at Rolls-Royce's Spanish subsidiary.

The emergency generator sets were built at Rolls-Royce's series assembly facility in Ruhstorf, Germany, and then placed in 20 and 40-ft containers at PSH Energia, a partner of Rolls-Royce's Spanish subsidiary.

Before the turnkey systems were handed over to the customer, they were successfully put through their paces in the usual factory acceptance tests, and in further tests designed to prove that the power node requirements specific to the project were being met.

Rolls-Royce's mtu ValueCare agreement further safeguards reliable operation. The agreement covers both preventive and corrective maintenance over 12 years, as well as 24/7 support and annual testing. The data center was recently certified according to the Tier-3 standard of the Uptime Institute. By means of redundant and double-fed servers, data storage systems, network connections and other IT components, the data center will offer the bank a very high level of operational reliability.
