    Quincy Data Center Diesel Generator Count is up to 132 with Dell and Sabey most recent addition

    Wenatchee World has an article on the diesel generators permitted by the Washington Dept of Ecology.

    Ecology issues more generator permits

    Wednesday, August 31, 2011

    QUINCY — The state Department of Ecology on Friday issued an air quality permit to Sabey Corp., allowing the company to install 44 backup generators for a 520,000-square-foot Intergate-Quincy Data Center in case of a power outage.

    On Aug. 5, Ecology approved 28 backup generators for the Dell Data Center in Quincy. Last year, Microsoft won approval to expand its diesel generators to 37, and early this year, Yahoo! was granted permission to increase its generators to 23.

    This brings the total diesel generators permitted to 132.

    That brings the total number of approved backup generators in Quincy to 132.

    The state agency evaluated the potential health risks from that much diesel exhaust, which has several toxic pollutants.

    I read an interesting post, #4 in the thread (link below), on the Caterpillar (generator) site about a water utility that converted their diesel to dual fuel, piped in natural gas, and reduced emissions significantly. It apparently can still run diesel when needed, but that's not clear from the post.

    They were fighting with the air control people, though, since the regulator considered the generator diesel class. No word on the cost differential in installation and on going operations.

    It's good that experts first conduct complete reviews and analyses on the health risk before giving air quality permits. By the way, once Dell and Sabey complete construction, there will be 141 generators. http://www.clampelec.com.au/
