  AUSTIN, TX, Dec 12 (Marketwire) -- 
Active Power (NASDAQ: ACPW), manufacturer of UPS (uninterruptible power
supply) systems and modular infrastructure solutions, received a
multimillion dollar purchase order for its CleanSource(R) UPS systems.
These systems are slated for deployment at a data center owned by one of
the world's leading internet search firms. 

    The nearly 11 megawatts of total rated UPS capacity will be shipped later
this month to the end user's data center facility in the Pacific
Northwest region of the United States. 

    "The combined benefits of our power density, reliability, and total cost
of ownership (TCO) are unmatched in the market," said Martin Olsen, vice
president, Global Sales, at Active Power. "CleanSource UPS delivers
significant TCO savings to the customer's bottom line, provides energy
efficiencies of up to 98 percent at full load, and is proven seven times
less likely to fail versus legacy solutions(1). Put simply, we are
enabling global innovators like this end user to achieve their most
forward thinking data center designs."
