Himoinsa, through its distributor kW-set Oy, has supplied 5.4 MW of emergency power to ensure uninterrupted service to the customers and users of Ficolo’s data center facilities in Finland. After 10 years of supplying non-stop power to its data centers, KW-set has been certified by Ficolo as a key partner.

This major European data center provides data storage and cloud services. To guarantee service with built-in security, a reliable power supply and the constant availability of its services, Ficolo has installed three model HTW 2030 T5 Himoinsa generator sets, capable of providing 6750 kVA in emergency power, together with an independent UPS system.

Ficolo has 3 data centers, The Rock in Pori, The Deck in Tampere and The Air in Helsinki which uses a cell-based technology that combines power and cooling, which means that each cell has its own generator set to guarantee a continuous supply.

Himoinsa: technical specifications 

Himoinsa offers reliable equipment for power critical operations such as hospitals, data centers, airports, etc., where nothing can go wrong. This project has called for generator sets with pre-heating resistances with a pump, whose thermostat has been set at between 38-54 Cº, thus keeping the water in the engine at a minimum temperature of 40 Cº, which allows the generator sets to start up within 10 seconds of any failure. This ensures an immediate response and a continuous supply. In addition, to ensure comprehensive control of the system, the generators are monitored via a controller that supervises the pre-heating resistances with a pump. 

Jimi Nurmi, the General Manager at kW-set Oy, Himoinsa’s distributor in Finland, confirms that “our end customer has placed great value on the performance and responsiveness of the equipment. Himoinsa and kW-set Oy’s know-how in Data Center projects, as well as the quality of the generator sets explain why our equipment has been chosen for this project.”
