Infrastructure Upgrade Existing Data Centre

19/09/2021

Description
This design and build project was completed successfully for a longstanding client of AMS Ltd. A pre-existing data centre was approaching maximum electrical capacity. AMS Ltd designed and managed the construction of a new purpose built ‘Energy Centre’ adjoining the data centre, the building is security rated and fully protected by IG-55 fire suppression. The project involved upgrading the existing HV/LV supply, new parallel generator sets, new UPS systems, new LV Switchboards and plant room cooling, all designed to achieve Tier 3 standards. The electrical supplies were seamlessly migrated onto the new equipment over the course of 3 months with no loss of power to existing services. The new electrical systems are designed to meet the ever increasing demands of Telco / Data Centre environments, including the deployment of 5G services.
