Data Centre Generator

Data Centre Genset - These two Cummins Power Generation C275D5 silent diesel generators are being loaded onto their transport for delivery to Cardiff in Wales. The two silent gensets will be used to provide critical power on demand to a large data centre located just outside the city.


Data Centre Silent Generator

The data centre is based just outside the capital city of Cardiff in Wales, UK. Although the facility is brand new they have performed a local power risk assessment and have concluded that the state of the mains grid power supply in Wales is not as secure as a data centre requires. A Data Centre has to be online all the time, it's essential for the service they want to offer their own clients.

In this case, the customer knew exactly what power solution they required for the Cardiff data centre project. They had identified the Cummins C275D5 as the perfect solution for their requirements, the generator itself was perfect in power output and the client was already a fan of Cummins generators having used them for many years beforehand. As the location for the data centre was in fact split into two, they would require 2 generators to backup the whole site for many years to come.

The Cummins C275D5 offers 250 kVA when used in prime mode and 275 kVA power when used as a backup genset. The C275 D5 features a Cummins QSL9G5 engine, UCD1274K Alternator. The 250kVA silent generator comes with a battery charger, water heater, set-mounted 4-pole circuit breaker, 691-litre base fuel tank and close-fit canopy that reduces sound levels outside the genset to an incredible 77dBA from as little as one metre away.

Once the client had chosen Diesel generator Direct as their chosen supplier of generator sets for the data centre facility. They were very keen to discuss the after-sale service and how we could work with them to maintain and service the diesel generators on a regular basis.

This would leve the businesses to concentrate on their own work safe in the knowlege that power supply will never be an issue, even in the case of a power failure the solution we have provided would be ready to provide backup power at the drop of a hat.

We organised the delivery and the gen-sets were delivered to the client in Cardiff.

We stock a wide range of generator solutions here and they're not all diesel generators either; home generators, we also stock petrol and natural gas generators for backup or prime power.
