ZincFive to provide Green Nickel-Zinc UPS Battery Cabinets to Wyoming Hyperscale White Box
ZincFive’s BC Series UPS Battery Cabinets will make Wyoming Hyperscale the first data center of its kind to solely rely on safe & sustainable nickel-zinc batteries for backup power
PORTLAND, Oregon—(January, 2022)— ZincFive, the world leader in nickel-zinc battery-based solutions for data centers, announced today its BC Series UPS Battery Cabinets have been specified by sustainable data center developer Wyoming Hyperscale White Box, which plans to commission its first development site in Aspen, WY, later this year. This data center will be the first of its kind to utilize sustainable nickel-zinc battery-based uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) as its sole source of backup energy storage, complementing its commitment to minimizing its environmental footprint.
Wyoming Hyperscale seeks to build sustainably operated data centers around the world, providing greater access to data, with less waste and greater energy efficiency. Their Aspen Mountain Hyperscale Data Center Project will manage 30MW of critical IT load in its first phase and will be the first geothermal coupled hyperscale data center in Wyoming. Steps being taken by the data center to minimize its environmental footprint include liquid cooling with zero water use, the use of renewable power and heat, and now, the utilization of the highly sustainable ZincFive nickel-zinc batteries.
“This project will showcase to the world cutting-edge technologies that can take data center sustainability to new heights,” said Wyoming Hyperscale founder Trenton Thornock. “We’re excited to take advantage of the environmental benefits provided by ZincFive’s sustainable battery solution, as well as their benefits in terms of performance, reliability and exceptional safety.”
ZincFive BC Series UPS Battery Cabinets are the first nickel-zinc battery energy storage solution with backward and forward compatibility with megawatt class UPS inverters. Nickel-zinc technology offers a smaller footprint, minimal maintenance requirements, no thermal runaway, and the higher reliability demanded for mission-critical data centers. A third party expert analysis has validated that ZincFive’s nickel-zinc batteries have a significantly lower end-to-end climate impact than lead-acid and lithium batteries.
“As the importance of sustainability in data center backup battery systems continues to grow as a requirement, Wyoming Hyperscale is leading the way by incorporating nickel-zinc batteries into their sustainability strategy,” said ZincFive CEO and Co-Founder Tim Hysell. “Our shared commitment to reducing carbon footprint and operating costs without sacrificing safety or performance is what makes our solution a great fit for all future and current data centers.”
