Amito - Uninterruptible Power Supply Case Study

Power Control Helps Amito Achieve Leading PUE Rates

The solution and results

Data centres are becoming increasingly complex environments with large focus being placed on sustainability and money saving technology.

Placing a high priority on sustainability, Amito pride themselves as being one of the most energy efficient data centre sites in the UK. Ensuring all equipment is future-proofed was key to improving energy efficiency levels, whilst also maximising the longevity of the site.

UPS systems play a large part in improving PUE and this latest project saw Power Control deliver eight 400kVA high efficiency Huawei UPS5000-S systems in a 2N configuration. This was a direct swap out, replacing eight less efficient transformer-based UPS systems and reducing CO2 by 109,062kg within a year.

The latest generation of modular UPS technology also means Amito is operating at an improved PUE of 1.12, making the site significantly more efficient.

The decentralised UPS systems are designed to independently feed different areas of the data centre facility, making future expansion an easier process and one that is less time consuming. Future proofing facilities is becoming increasingly important as demand for online services continues to rise.

After a rigorous selection process, Amito first enlisted Power Control’s services in early 2012 ago and since then a strong relationship between the two businesses has been formed.

“Sustainability is at the heart of our philosophy and from the very beginning creating an energy efficient data centre has always been a high priority. We wanted to ensure that we achieved a low PUE whilst still achieving 100% availability. With this in mind, we set about looking for a UPS provider that could meet our needs whilst mirroring our values.

“After a rigorous selection process, Power Control came out on top with their Huawei UPS 5000-S solution. This modular solution is very efficient even at low loads and provides us with the ability to scale up when needed. Its small footprint also means that we could maximise the space in our data centre.


“We have an excellent relationship with Power Control. They take pride in their work which really shows as it is always of a very high standard. Their entire team, from technical sales through to the engineers are professional, knowledgeable, and helpful and it is a pleasure working with them.”
