A UK data center operator has HVO as fuel for the backup generators
DataVita adopts HVO for Glasgow data centers. “This eco-friendly alternative not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90 percent compared to conventional fossil-based diesel, but it also emits fewer particulates and nitrogen oxides, contributing positively to air quality.” DataVita MD Danny Quinn said on LinkedIn.
HVO is a recently-developed low-emission biofuel that promises high performance without the need to replace or customize diesel gen-sets.
A number of companies are looking to diesel alternatives as a way to reduce their carbon footprint and green their backup operations.
Amazon has adopted the fuel in Ireland and Sweden. UK operators Kao and Datum, the US’ Compass, as well as Belgium’s LCL, and Latvia’s DEAC, are all looking to adopt HVO as fuel for their backup generators.
Digital Realty’s French unit has also adopted HVO for its new PAR8 site in Paris. The company is also deploying HVO in Madrid, Spain, and plans to expand its use across the continent in the near future. Pure is also an HVO user, while Equinix has said it is doing a trial with the fuel.
At Inpro we also offer customised solutions and equipment (which are HVO compatible) for Data Centers in UK.
