Vertiv has confirmed the opening of its Vertiv Customer Experience Centre in Delaware, Ohio, US.

The new facility features a microgrid power solution to help data centres address electrical grid capacity and availability challenges.

According to Vertiv, data centres are experiencing these challenges as advancements in digital transformation put pressure on traditional electrical utilities.

The company collaborated with American Electric Power (AEP) on the microgrid application.

An “important step” for Vertiv

“Our customers are evaluating the role of microgrids and battery energy storage systems (BESS) for their mission critical power systems,” said Kyle Keeper, Senior Vice President, Global AC Power Product Development and Engineering, Vertiv.

“Standing up a microgrid that serves as both a customer experience centre and a test lab for performance will enable Vertiv to help our customers make critical decisions on whether a microgrid and BESS are right for their data centre and how to deploy their own microgrid sites.

“This is an important step in helping our customers operate more efficiently and effectively with the electrical grid.”
