AJ Power’s subsidiary FGW Generators based in South Africa, completed the installation of two AJ2500 Perkins powered generating sets for a Data Centre in Cape Town.

The cost of power outages for a data centre can be detrimental to their business and reputation. Data centre downtime is not an option for any operator, uptime is crucial which is why it is critical to have a reliable solution for backup power.

AJ Power’s subsidiary FGW Generators based in South Africa, recently completed the installation and commissioning of two AJ2500 Perkins powered generating sets for a Data Centre in Cape Town. The lead time on this project was critical, with the order finalised just shy of the Christmas break 2018.

It was then a race against time!

The two sets were manufactured and shipped from AJ Power in Northern Ireland on time in early 2019 and arrived safely into Cape Town, the first port of call in South Africa, soon after.

Upon arriving at site, the two thirteen and a half tonne sets were rigged over trees and into their respective generator rooms.

Electrical connections, fuel connections and the exhaust system were then completed to create the neat, tidy and professional installation.

This project is an excellent example of just one company we work with in this sector who understands the importance of having a continuous reliable power supply in place.

AJ Power and FGW Generators worked in collaboration to successfully complete the project.

Conveying our ability to deliver engineering excellence, built on experience.
