Ocado UPS Replacement

Read the full case study about the Ocado UPS Replacement


Ocado is a British online supermarket. In contrast to its main competitors, the company has no chain of stores and does all home deliveries from its warehouses.

Ocado has been voted the best online supermarket in the UK by Which? readers every year since 2010. Its main office is in Hatfield, Hertfordshire which is pivotal in their Business Support, Human Resources, Retail and Supply Chain Business Units. Ocado took full occupation of their new Trident Place Head offices in March 2007, an estate they took over from a major telecoms provider.


Ocado inherited the existing Data Centre space from a legacy operation. This Data Centre was protected by an old UPS system which was highly inefficient. During site surveys, readings were taken to demonstrate that the Qty 3 x existing 200kVA 160kW) units were operating with an efficiency of less than 50%. Ocado approached DCResponse to replace the existing units with new, high efficiency models to guarantee operational efficiency without downtime to their existing operations.

“As an online business, power protection is key to protecting Ocado’s revenue from disruptions cause by power cuts.”
