Data centre runs high efficiency power solution

November 21st, 2018, Published in Articles: Energize

Diesel Electric Services recently completed the installation and setup of a highly efficient power solution for a local data centre. The company installed three 2500 kVA KOHLER–SDMO diesel generators to provide the 11 kV power supply for the data centre. Other equipment included six 1200 kW free-standing PLC-controlled resistive load banks which are automated for stepped resistive loading.

The installation also includes Tamco 11 kV double-busbar switchgear for the generator and mains supply. The diesel gensets receive their fuel from a 23 000 litre diesel fuel tank in a container, which comprises two 11 500 litre tanks, fitted with two DES/Algae X fuel polishing and pump systems. To ensure maximum performance and total reliability, the fuel lines are made from stainless steel.
