Hyderabad: Hyderabad-based CtrlS deployed Asia’s largest Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) in Mumbai. The state-of-the-art GIS is currently equipped with a 300 MW capacity and can scale up to 700 MW.
The GIS is backed by three different sources and diversified paths ensuring 100 per cent availability of power, thus powering the two million square feet CtrlS Datacenter Campus with 10 data centres. The campus is currently under construction, of which four rated-4 data centres are operational.
CtrlS GIS facility has very limited sensitivity to environment, humidity. It is highly corrosion resistant, seismic resistant, enjoys an operating life of greater than 50 years, with no maintenance requirement for 25 years and protected against aggressive environmental conditions.
This GIS facility will now help businesses collocate their high-density IT infrastructure combined with seamless scalability to address their growth requirements.
The GIS deployed by CtrlS is one of the first large-scale deployments in Asia powered by three-line configuration (N+N+1). It has three source substations backed by two or more substations, thus providing highest reliability. CtrlS is equipped to deliver large capacities such as 100 MW of power to any customer in 15 to 18 months.
Gopalakrishnan, MD, GBCI, Southeast Asia and Middle East, said, “CtrlS deploying a 300 MW gas insulated substation (GIS) is a path breaking phenomenon in the industry. This is the first-of-its-kind deployment of power infrastructure by any data centre company in the Asia Pacific region. What is more interesting is the fact that CtrlS has planned ahead by ensuring that the GIS can be scaled up to 700 MW.”
“The deployment of 300 MW gas insulated substation scalable to 700 MW is our commitment to the industry as we continue to address the growing needs of hyperscalers, telcos, BFSI, healthcare, gaming, and new age companies. We stay committed to adopting innovative approaches to serve the unmet needs of our customers,” said Sridhar Pinnnapureddy, founder and CEO, CtrlS Datacenters.
