Active Power to Support New High Performance Computing Center for Leading Oil and Gas Producer
2.5 Megawatts of High Efficiency Flywheel UPS Delivers on Client's Stringent Design Requirements

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKETWIRE) -- 01/29/13 -- Active Power (NASDAQ: ACPW), manufacturer of UPS (uninterruptible power supply) systems and modular infrastructure solutions, has shipped three of its CleanSource® UPS systems with one unit rated at 1200 kVA and two of the units rated at 900 kVA. The 2.5 megawatts of UPS capacity will be deployed at a new high performance computing center in Texas. Installation will occur in the first quarter of 2013.

The client's design objectives included an ultra-low PUE (power usage effectiveness), high reliability, and space efficiency. CleanSource UPS is uniquely positioned to deliver client advantages in all three of these key areas enabling the client to reduce power losses, power equipment expenses, and meet their space requirements.

"Our CleanSource UPS is an ideal fit based on the customer's power design and the requirements set forth," said Martin Olsen, vice president, Global Sales, at Active Power. "The inherent benefits of our UPS product -- industry leading power density, efficiency, and reliability -- magnify the advantages of the design particularly in terms of reduction in energy losses and footprint. These are attributes legacy UPS technology is unable to match."
