Generator Rooms and Fuel Depots
Supplementing a battery-based UPS with emergency power generation is essential for data center reliability. Generators create kinetic energy which is then converted into electricity. These generators require different forms of fuel, including kerosene, diesel, or gasoline. The heat & energy generated from the generators and the proximity of fuel tanks make generator enclosures a huge fire risk for a data center.
• Flammable electrolytes, oils, and carbon-based fuels
• Lubricating oil escaping through leaks
• Friction from mechanical systems
• Proximity of combustible fuel storage
