Bounce Services a small to medium Business IT Managed Services and Support solutions provider, in Western Australia, was faced with constant power outages lasting up to 8 hours at a time, causing major disruptions to their data centre located in Mundaring and consequently to their clients, which included the likes of Cougar Metals, Morrison and MIE Enterprises.

In March of this year, Perth was hit by a major storm which caused wide spread destruction and caused power outages in the Mundaring area lasting up to 72 hours.

Matthew Wood, Director of Bounce Services said “Having our data centre down for 72hours and the issues that caused for our customers was the final straw for me.”

“We contacted PR Power, who are well known for their generator supply and installation in Western Australia and they were able to assist.”  

PR Power, supplied, installed and commissioned a 10kVa, Perkins powered, fully enclosed and sound attenuated diesel generator to provide emergency power, in the event of another power outage. The generator would ensure a continuous power supply to keep the servers and the cooling system running and also provide a power supply to adjoining residents.

Bob Baxter the Power Generation Manager at PR Power said “PR Power has done a number of data centre installations for major companies including the likes of iiNet and we were confident in being able to supply Bounce Services with a generator capable of overcoming their power supply issues.”

The installation was completed by PR Power in May of this year and was put to the test in August after another power outage in the Mundaring area that lasted almost 9 hours.

“We were extremely excited to see the generator come to life when we experienced the latest power outage, and the system didn’t miss a beat” said Matthew Wood. “The emergency generator has enabled Bounce Services to offer our customers increased reliability with our service offering.”
