Crestchic Loadbanks, a leading provider of load testing solutions, is looking forward to meeting customers and sharing expertise at the upcoming Data Centre World Frankfurt (DCW) event. Scheduled for May 22-23rd, 2024, at the Frankfurt Messe, the exhibition is an ideal opportunity for Crestchic to demonstrate the integral role of load testing in data centre power resilience.

Heiko Thoene-Schaub, from Crestchic Loadbanks GmbH, commented, “Data Centre World Frankfurt is a pivotal event for us. It offers a unique opportunity to connect with customers, prospects and contacts in the European data centre sector. We are excited to demonstrate how our load testing equipment can ensure the reliability and efficiency of data centre operations, at a time when power resilience is a key concern for operators.”

As the demand for reliable and resilient data centre infrastructure continues to grow, Crestchic is excited to showcase its range of loadbanks, which are tailored to meet the unique needs of the data centre industry.  Among the highlights are:

  • Resistive-only load banks: Crestchic designs and manufactures a wide range of air-cooled resistive load banks in various sizes and containers, from 10kW up to 6000kW, built to your specific voltage, frequency and phase requirements.
  • Rack-mounted server emulators: Using server emulator load banks, in multiple rack configuration, allows the commissioning engineers to replicate the heat load of servers and thoroughly test the server hall air conditioning output and performance.
  • Capacitive load banks: Used to test with the leading power factor often associated with servers
  • Large multi-megawatt, medium voltage load bank packages: For testing and synchronising multi-genset systems on a common bus with a lagging power factor
  • DC load banks: Used to test UPS systems for close battery analysis and discharge performance
  • Resistive-reactive load banks: For testing the whole system operation in an emergency change-over scenario

Heiko continues “The German data centre market is expected to grow significantly in the coming years (USD 7.16 Billion in 2023, to USD 12.24 Billion in 2029). Rising demand for AI solutions is boosting growth, and the robust and stable economy makes the region an attractive proposition for investors. With the government focused on transitioning to renewable energy, operators must have robust backup power in place to ensure uptime in the event of a power outage.”

With 40 years of experience in providing load testing equipment, Crestchic Loadbanks has sales, rental and service operations around the globe, and a range of solutions to ensure the performance and efficiency of critical power systems.
