Burscheid Data Centre Upgrade


AMS Ltd were appointed by Johnson Controls Automotive to provide a turnkey service to increase the power capacity at their EMEA Data Centre (World Hub).

AMS Ltd’s innovative design saw both increased resilience and capacity for the client within their programme and no impact to existing services. Total power was doubled to 2MVA and IT power increased initially via a modular, high efficiency UPS system from 600kVA to 900kVA. A bespoke 2.2MVA SBG was installed to supplement the existing and provide N+1 resilience to the site. The modular UPS design allowed the client to meet their initial requirements in the programmed time and finally increase their total IT capacity to 1.2MVA. High efficiency, free cooling chillers and environment controls supplemented the existing free cooling system.

AMS Ltd were not only able to provide JCI with their increased capacity but also increased resilience and increased efficiency all within programme and budget.

This project signifies AMS Ltd’s tenth project in Germany within the last four years highlighting our international capability.
