Data Centers

Secure and efficient power solutions.

Data center solutions at the national level are a key industry trend, creating the need for decentralized power solutions. To make these onsite energy systems sustainable, integrated waste heat recovery solutions are needed to enable cooling, which usually accounts for up to 40% of a data center’s energy requirements.

  • Your challenge
    Your data center is considered critical infrastructure, meaning you must provide the highest levels of availability and reliability and prevent IT blackouts. Yet, you face increased capacity and energy demand from growing global data traffic and an exponential rise in internet-connected IoT devices.
  • Industry Trends
    Data center solutions at the national level are a key industry trend, creating the need for decentralized power solutions. To make these onsite energy systems sustainable, integrated waste heat recovery solutions are needed to enable cooling, which usually accounts for up to 40% of a data center’s energy consumption.
  • Our approach

    INNIO’s Jenbacher trigeneration plants are flexible, innovative systems offering combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP) solutions.

    You can bring down emissions significantly by replacing the conventional electric-driven cooling compressors now used in data centers with combined onsite power generation. Our technology uses the generated waste heat with individual solutions based on absorption chillers, heat pumps and other waste heat recovery solutions. When fueled with highly reliable pipeline gas, Jenbacher CCHP systems can cut your data center’s CO2 footprint by up to 50%—depending on the energy mix—while saving more than 20% of the primary energy used.

The Jenbacher solution

In a Jenbacher trigeneration plant, the engine continuously provides electrical power, efficiently and reliably. The waste heat it generates can be used in an absorption chiller to produce continuous, energy-efficient cooling. Because they have no moving parts, absorption chillers are very reliable and represent the technology of choice for continuous operation.

Your benefits

Solutions Benefis Graphic

  • Ensure supply security
    Our Jenbacher CCHP plants using pipeline gas provide you with power that is independent from the grid.
  • Lower your costs
    The electrical and thermal efficiency of a Jenbacher CCHP plant can reach up to 90%.
  • Benefit from scalable modular system
    Onsite power sources provide you with more flexibility when you need to expand your data center — or even design a new one.
  • Open up the opportunity for CO2 - free operation
    Our pipeline gas-driven Jenbacher engines produce only half as much CO2 emissions as power produced from coal. With our "Ready for H2" option, our engines are capable of running with up to 20% (vol) of hydrogen in pipeline gas.
