Acive Power - 12 Megawatt Sale
Yesterday Active Power announced that it received its largest single order from a "large search engine". The order was for twelve 1200kVA CleanSource UPS Systems.
“This particular customer’s order further substantiates the market acceptance of high performance and high efficiency flywheel UPS solutions for large mission critical data center applications,” said Jim Clishem, president and CEO of Active Power. “We continue to see rapid adoption of our flywheel technology particularly among major data center owners and operators who recognize the value proposition and performance benefits inherent with systems of this design. Active Power delivers better space and power efficiencies which result in substantial economic savings while at the same time providing a more reliable and green solution.”
I would have to think that "a large search engine" could really only mean Google, Microsoft or Yahoo. If I had to guess, I would say it is for Yahoo, but with their containerized power systems I have to wonder if it is for Microsoft.
