MTU Onsite Energy Corp. announced a new power output rating exclusive to the data center industry. The Data Center Power (DCP) rating allows unlimited runtime and greater usable power output for maximum performance and reliability in data center applications. Designed for the specialized needs of data centers, the new rating applies to MTU Onsite Energy’s Series 4000 generator sets with a power output range of 1,135 to 2,800 kilowatts (kWe).

“MTU Onsite Energy has long been a preferred power provider to the world’s most well-known data center industry brands and this new Data Center Power rating helps solidify our strength in the marketplace,” said Al Prosser, director of sales, North and Latin America, MTU Onsite Energy. “We’ve worked closely with the Uptime Institute for many years to ensure maximum performance in compliance with their Tiers. Offering this custom rating to our data center customers allows us to simplify a process that can be otherwise daunting.”

Currently available for purchase from MTU Onsite Energy’s network of distributors, the Uptime Institute Tier III- and IV-compliant DCP rating was developed to eliminate runtime limitations for data centers that demand high availability requirements and long-term viability.

With more than 60 years of power generation systems expertise and more than a century of diesel engine engineering excellence, MTU Onsite Energy offers diesel generator sets certified at an industry-leading 85 percent average load factor over 24 hours. This lets MTU Onsite Energy customers specify fewer generator sets for data center applications, depending on the size of the installation.
