Delta opens German power centre
Delta has opened a Customer Experience Centre for its Data Centre and Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) technology in Soest, Germany.
The 500m² centre supports multiple megawatt power and testing to meet the test and qualification requirements from enterprise data centres to megawatt colocation data centres.
Field application tests (FAT) can be conducted up to 2.4 MW, while all tests are compliant with DIN EN 62040 to ensure the highest standard of safety. Power can be scaled up to 3.6 MW to create high power applications under real working conditions such as a megawatt level colocation data centre.
The design, construction, and operation of the Customer Experience Centre is compliant with international safety standards, while tests are fully automated and controlled to reach the highest level of reliability.
“According to certain market research data, the data centre market in Europe is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.53% during 2022-2027 by investments,” said Rakesh Mukhija, Head of Mission Critical Infrastructure Solutions (MCIS) at Delta EMEA.
“The need for data centres, ranging from enterprise level to colocation level, is rapidly increasing. We support our customers in building customized, reliable, flexible, manageable, and energy-efficient data centres with Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) aiming at lower than 1.5 by offering our data centre infrastructure solutions. The new Customer Experience Centre serves as the perfect showcase for our solution with Delta’s technical leadership and competency, and we are excited to unveil this new facility.”
Systems available in the centre include AC UPSs ranging from 1kVA single phase to 1000kVA three phase with single/parallel systems, batteries, Busway system, IT racks and its accessories, single rack data centre solutions, distribution cabinets and lithium-ion batteries.
The facility offers training and certification for its own staff as well as partners. With the on-site facilities, it can create extreme scenarios as a proof point of the efficiency, reliability and durability of its UPS solutions. For customers new to Delta’s solutions, demonstrations help to build trust in the capabilities of its solutions and increase the level of awareness for its data centre and UPS solutions.
Christian Ferber, Data Centre Architect, Mission Critical Infrastructure Solutions at Delta EMEA, added, “Unique to the industry, the Customer Experience Centre acts as a proof point of our solutions’ performance, reliability and suitability for a wide range of our customers’ data centre requirements. It validates Delta’s position as a leader in the EMEA for sales and customer support, while demonstrating that Delta is a reliable and competent partner for their data centre business and operation.
