Alberta’s Blue Cross provides supplementary health and dental benefits to meet the needs of over 1.6 million Albertans. Their office in Edmonton is located in the heart of the city; standing over 8 stores high, the Alberta Blue Cross building has 3 roof mounted, natural gas generators. These units are used to back up the building’s data center. Utilizing three paralleled natural gas generators provided a large cost savings in both equipment and infrastructure.  The generators also have an additional redundancy built into their system for an added level of reliability.
