NNIO's Jenbacher Ready for Hydrogen engine technology has been selected by NorthC Datacenters (NorthC) to deliver an emergency backup power solution for its newest data centre which will be constructed in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Six Jenbacher hydrogen engines will provide carbon-free emergency backup power in cases of electricity grid outages. The Jenbacher Type 4 hydrogen engines generate a total power output of six megawatt and will be delivered as a containerized package. The Eindhoven data centre including the hydrogen emergency backup power solution and the onsite hydrogen storage solution is a greenfield project, that is expected to be operational in the second half of 2023.
"We are excited and proud to build the first 100% green hydrogen emergency backup power solution with engines for data centres globally together with NorthC. As a carbon-free energy source, hydrogen is an important pillar of the energy transition," comments Dr. Olaf Berlien, president and CEO of INNIO.
