Rolls-Royce Supplies, Commissions Four MTU Kinetic PowerPacks To X-FAB Sarawak

KUALA LUMPUR: British multinational aerospace and defence company Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc has supplied and commissioned four of its mtu Kinetic PowerPacks to X-FAB Sarawak.

mtu Kinetic PowerPacks are engineered to perform seamlessly under the most demanding power supply challenges.

X-FAB Sarawak is the Malaysian division of X-FAB Silicon Foundries, a leading foundry group for specialty semiconductor applications.

The dynamic uninterruptible power supply (DUPS) units secure the critical power load for operations at the company’s manufacturing site in Kuching, Sarawak.

mtu Kinetic PowerPacks are engineered to perform seamlessly under the most demanding power supply challenges.

They provide immediate, high-quality power through the use of kinetic energy.

The units eliminate the need for batteries as in a standard UPS configuration, offer a much smaller footprint, and are environmentally friendly due to their 20+ year equipment life and ability to run on sustainable fuels such as HVO.

“Being secure in the knowledge that the power supply is reliable and of the highest quality, even during times of grid instability or interruption, is important for any business but is especially vital for a company such as X-FAB Sarawak, which has a consistent, high-level output of critical products and supports many employees and corporate functions,” Rolls-Royce Solutions Asia Pte Ltd project manager Bryan Foo said in a statement.

The X-FAB site in Kuching manufactures semiconductor wafers for automotive, industrial, and medical applications.

It has over 1,400 employees and a wide range of operations, such as finance and procurement.

The four installed mtu Kinetic PowerPacks feature a medium voltage, parallel system configuration offering 2000 kVA (1600kW).

They replace older, existing DUPS units from a different manufacturer that were experiencing ongoing issues with dropping critical load from the mains.

In normal operation, when the public power supply is working, the mtu Kinetic PowerPacks use a choke – a heavy, rotating electromagnetic coil – to compensate for the power grid’s short-term current and voltage fluctuations.

The Kinetic PowerPacks also come with an MTU ValueCare service agreement, which provides preventative maintenance at regular intervals and technical support to ensure maximum performance.

Rolls-Royce Solutions Asia Pte Ltd project engineer Elvenrey Rios said the company’s project team upheld X-FAB’s strong safety culture, product quality and user-friendly equipment throughout the process.

“The reliable critical load support provided by the current mtu Kinetic PowerPacks has also resulted in the customer engaging Rolls-Royce for an additional unit,” he said.
