The Indonesian data center market has experienced significant growth over recent years, which is largely driven by greater connectivity and major expansion of the e-commerce sector, which has grown by 48 percent last year [1]. In addition to this, the Indonesian government is committing to implementing smart city with IoT infrastructure technology embedded in roads, streetlights, and traffic signals. All of which will result in an increased need for innovative data centers to support data consumption growth.  

“A combination of Indonesia’s own internet revolution and government connectivity commitment has created significant growth in the country over the past few years. The Indonesian data center market is estimated to grow from $1.67 billion in 2021 to $3.43 billion, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.5% from 2022-2027 [2],” said Joedy Lim, Head of Data Center Segment of ABB’s Electrification business in Indonesia. “For data centers, reliable power protection is the key to ensure uptime, and this is why ABB PowerWave 33 is the perfect solution which delivers a great combination of energy efficiency and power performance.”  

ABB’s PowerWave 33 has a small footprint and uses less energy than comparable products, thus delivering significant savings. It offers up to 96% efficiency in double conversion or 99% efficiency in eco-mode across a wide load range. PowerWave 33 is ideal for medium-sized data centers, office and building power protection, process automation and other critical processes.
