Building a Better Bond: How Fibrebond is Meeting the Unique Design Demands for Generator Enclosures

Brett Dean said


Generator enclosures are evolving as the industry demands bigger, better, and more generator sets. In this episode of Building a Better Bond with Fibrebond, host Daniel Litwin sat down with Brett Dean, business unit director for Fibrebond, to break down the growth of genset solutions, why emergency and back-up generators are evolving, and how enclosure designs are evolving alongside them.

Because data centers must have a continuous source of power, they rely on backup generators or generator sets when its primary power source goes down. But gensets are evolving as the high demand for data centers continues to skyrocket.

“In the early 2000s, there were co-location providers. But now these large cloud service providers are the ones that I don’t think the market could have forecasted what their demand was going to be,” Dean said.

As such, generator sets in the past decade have increased in size, fuel tank capacities, and unit quantities. Plus, there’s the demand for lower sound ratings with all these bigger, better but louder generators.

But just as urgently as data centers must be up and running, so must gensets and their ensuing enclosures. That’s why the demand for modular prefab units is so intrinsically tied to growth in the data center market, Dean explained.

“Even though the generator itself is in creating in its kilowatt output, the end user may still have a physical footprint restriction so you have to be innovative in how you are arranging items within the enclosure,” he said.

To meet these design requirements, Fibrebond has created innovative quality control processes to ensure client’s enclosure needs are met.

“At Fibrebond, we’re providing the shelter, fuel tank base, and any integration needed on that generator to make it as reliable as they desire,” Dean said.
