GENNEVILLIERS, France, January 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Exide Technologies ( https://www.exidegroup.com ), a leading provider of energy storage solutions for stationary applications, launches its new range of Sprinter Pure Power batteries . Developed specifically for use in data center UPSs, this latest generation of advanced AGM batteries also serve a wide variety of applications.

Data centers: pioneering technology goes to the next level

As the world becomes increasingly digital, data centers must manage exponentially growing volumes of data and consequently increase the capacity of their facilities, operating profitably and becoming sustainable to remain competitive. They need an advanced and reliable energy support system in case of possible power outages. Therefore, choosing the right battery to serve as the backbone of the data center is the most important thing.

Compelling features with optimized profitability and total cost of ownership

Sprinter Pure Power batteries are designed to provide maximum reliability, durability and performance in modern data centers, including large-scale colocation facilities and hyperscale facilities. They are manufactured with pure lead electrodes, offering the greatest power, resistance to corrosion and operation at high temperatures, allowing significant savings in air conditioning, which will translate into a considerable reduction in CO2 emissions and substantial energy savings. Compared to traditional AGM batteries, Sprinter Pure Power provides a significant reduction in data center total cost of ownership (TCO), thanks to 20% more energy in high-rate discharges, space savings of between 15 % and 20% and a design life >12 years (Eurobat Classification) and reduced recharging cost due to its excellent charging efficiency. The Sprinter Pure Power’s thin plate design ensures maximum energy transfer and the special polypropylene bowl reduces water vapor emissions and extends maintenance-free life.

Paving the way to the future with fully automated production lines

Sprinter Pure Power batteries are manufactured in Europe on state-of-the-art, fully automated production lines 100% dedicated to pure lead AGM, with quality controls at every stage of production.

Adopting the circular economy and solar energy as a path to sustainability, the Sprinter Pure Power factory in Portugal (Castanheira) uses solar energy, generated with the Exide photovoltaic park in the production and recycling facilities. This is the largest photovoltaic installation in a production plant in Portugal, which uses solar energy for self-consumption, which allows the Exide plant to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 20%.

More than data centers, more than UPS

In addition to data center UPS, Sprinter Pure Power also offers great opportunities in applications such as UPS as a standby (UPSaaR) and distributed energy resources (DER), as well as network service provided by operators in various industries.

“These most advanced pure lead AGM batteries for UPS and data center applications are produced on fully automated manufacturing lines, with systemic quality controls at every stage of production,” explained Serge Arbes, Senior Commercial Director at Exide Technologies Global Energy Solutions. “Thanks to its closed-loop recycling and the use of solar energy from one of the largest solar parks with energy storage in Europe, the Sprinter Pure Power has the lowest possible CO2 footprint.”
