The data centre which installed Powerstar is a multinational information technology corporation that provides products, technologies, software,solutions and services to individual consumers, small and medium sized buisnesses and large enterprises, including customers in the government, health and education sectors.
The UK based install was of three Powerstar voltage optimisation systems as part of their ongoing climate & energy sustainability strategy. Following HHD (Half Hour Data) analysis and a site survey it was determined that the installation of Powerstar would generate guaranteed energy consumption savings of 6.5%.
The Data Centre company strives to be exemplary global citizens by addressing the areas most critical to their stakeholders and business.
Powerstar’s challenge was to impress the Data Centre with their ability to achieve the aims set out in their climate and energy sustainability plan, whilst having no detrimental affect on the equipment and processes within the UK location.
The installation was completed with minimum disruption to business operations. Since the installation, there have been no detrimental affects to any of the equipment, computer systems, data storage or on-site processes as a result of the installation. The Data Centre has also benefited from a reduction in maintenance costs and failures of electrical equipment such as lighting etc as a result of reducing the over-voltage into the site.
