Rolls-Royce has supplied and commissioned four of its mtu Kinetic PowerPacks to X-FAB Sarawak, the Malaysian division of X-FAB, a 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 located in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia.

mtu Kinetic PowerPacks provide immediate 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 their ability to run on sustainable fuels such as HVO.

Bryan Foo, Project Manager, Rolls-Royce Solutions Asia Pte. Ltd. said:

“Being secure in the knowledge that your 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 that has a consistent, high-level output of critical products and that supports many employees and corporate functions.”

Rolls Royce not relevant to UK Defence? Oh, maybe you should tell them personally, they might not have realised 🤔

You must be peeved about all those useless stories about Russia, Ukraine, Israel and Gaza et al 😂
