Data Centre generator installation
A 120 Tonne Crane Was Required
The ATS changeover panel consisted of:
800amp MCCB DNO Incomer
800amp MCCB 500kVA Standby Generator Incomer
400amp MCCB Build Supply
400amp MCCB Data Centre Supply
A complete building shutdown was required and INFINITI arranged attendance of an AP (Approved Person) from the local power provider to isolate the supply from the local transformer prior to fitting and connecting into the generator ATS change over panel. To ensure these works didn’t affect the business in anyway, the works where completed out of office hours over two very long evenings starting at 8pm then finishing at 4am.
The positioning of the generator set would be at the rear of the building fixed to a pre-poured reinforced concrete slab all contained within a secure plant compound. INFINITI arranged for a contract crane lift to lift the data centre generator into position and to avoid a road closure which can take up to 8 weeks to organise through the local authorities. A much larger 120 tonne crane was used and situated within the office car park to lift the 5 tonne generator up and over the office building.
