Thailand data centre operator Digital Port Asia (DPA) is relying on Cummins for critical protection power at its new facility in Amata Industrial Park, DPA is majority owned by Japanese company NTT Communications, a subsidiary of Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corporation, one of the world’s largest providers of telecommunications services.
The new DPA data centre near Bangkok can accommodate 1,400 racks, making it one of the largest data centres in Thailand. As a dedicated data centre it will ensure high quality and its flood-free location will contribute to robust reliability. It is designed to operate at 99.9999% availability and has international-standard security systems.
Cummins is providing the critical diesel generator back-up power at the site. Two QSK60 generator sets, each rated at 2,000 kVA, are initially installed at the data centre with a further six to be added when the facility reaches full capacity.
Cummins was selected to supply the generator sets because of product reliability and strong local support from joint venture distributor Cummins DKSH Thailand.
“The technical support and project management capabilities of Cummins DKSH were the key factors in the choice of the Cummins generator sets,” says Sukchat Yingyuen, DPA facility manager.
