Hybrid UPS Units Ordered for Green Data Centers

Posted on May 1, 2009

Capstone Turbine received an initial order for twelve of its patented C65 Hybrid Uninterruptible Power Source (UPS) units. Capstone’s Hybrid UPS is the first UPS system in the world that integrates low-emission microturbines directly with a dual-conversion UPS to provide power for mission-critical loads.

Hybrid UPS is a key part of Capstone's Secure Power product line that also includes UpSource, which is designed to provide prime power for data centers. Both Secure Power products offer eight 9's of reliability in common N + 1 configurations, all with less maintenance and lower cost of ownership than traditional battery-based UPS systems.

Capstone launched its Secure Power 83kVA-664kVA UPS product line in June 2008 and continues to see interest for both the UpSource and Hybrid UPS products. The UpSource solution offers efficient primary power that runs parallel to, yet independent of, the utility grid, and the new patented Hybrid UPS product offers dual-conversion power electronics via three modes – high efficiency, standard UPS and emergency backup.

Capstone’s two Secure Power offerings are the world’s only microturbine-powered UPS solutions that can offer clean, IT-grade power produced from microturbines, the utility or a combination of both, which results in highly economical, clean and reliable power.
