Video of MW of Standby Diesel Power to Minnesota Data Center

Global Power Supply is proud to announce that it has recently completed the delivery of a new MTU 3250 kW standby diesel generator to Viawest’s Minnesota data center. Adding in parallel to a pair of previously installed 2MW gensets, the data center has a combined generator capacity of over 7MW of standby power, with ample room for future expansion. This solution is specifically designed to be fault tolerant and tier 3 certified by the Uptime Institute.

The work began back in 2015 when GPS was awarded the project based on a design-build quotation which included multiple paralleled gensets installed over the course of two years including freight and logistics, startup and commissioning, onsite assembly, and additional site services.

GPS worked closely with Viawest and contractors through a detailed submittals review process, tweaking the design throughout.

ViaWest offers a full-suite of IT services, from cloud storage solutions, colocation to IT consulting. At 30 data centers and growing, they are focused on providing clients with Hybrid IT solutions delivered through local teams and facilities that are built to ensure the availability of data and applications.
