Phase One Technical Equipment Installation Begins
Phase One of IXcellerate’s Moscow One Datacentre continues on schedule, as technical equipment has begun to be installed in the technical areas. Emerson has supplied UPS equipment for Phase One of the datacentre and we have designed the UPS to a 2N A+B feed specification.
We have also used Emerson CRAC units in Phase One. CRACs are used to cool the datacentre which can get very hot with all the heat emitted from IT equipment. We have initially designed 4 CRAC units in an N+20% configuration with upgrade space for 4 additional units. The CRACs supply cool air under the raised floor into the customer racks.
Phase One construction continues with installation of the power switchgear, the VESDA fire detection system, and the HI FOG fire suppression system. IXcellerate is still on track to complete construction of Phase One and move into the commissioning and testing phase during the last week of October.
