  • Data Centre Cooling Air Conditioning Installation
    Traditionally, there are two ways of cooling a data center: air-based cooling and liquid-based cooling. Air-Based The first and most common, method within the realm of air-based cooling is what’s called ‘cold aisle/hot aisle.’ The idea is to separate the cold air from the hot...
  • Data Centre Fire Suppression Installation Upgrade
    Facility managers have a range of factors to consider when it comes to data center fire suppression systems. The primary fire protection systems used within data centers typically include: wet pipe sprinklers, pre-action sprinklers, and special suppression (i.e., clean agent, inert gas, or mist)  Facility managers have a range of factors to consider when it...
  • Generator AVR – What is the AVR?
    The Generator AVR is a small electronic device that sits on the alternator monitoring the power output. You may never even notice it. This small electronic device automatically maintains the generator electrical output terminal voltage within pre-set manufacturers parameters. The Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) is...

  • Data Centre Power Continuity
    Data Centre Power Continuity will eliminate power dips, spikes, brownouts that would otherwise pose a serious risk to data centre IT equipment and servers. Additionally, multiple issues can be experienced when data centre power has blips, including loss of data, reduced production and time wasted...
  • Phase Shift – What Is It?
    Phase shift happens what there is more than one power feed coming into a building. Each transformer supply needs to have the same phase rotation and the identical phase location. (zero) If there is only one supply, then there is no issue. On the other...
  • Power Continuity – Data Centre Fuel Systems
    A Power Continuity back-up generator as part of a data centre’s power continuity system is only as good as the fuel system that supplies it. We design, build and install, anywhere in the UK. Bigger the better, for Data Centres. Once installed what’s next ?...
  • Generators – Water in Fuel – Contamination
    A diesel generator, as the name suggests, relies upon a clean supply of fuel to operate and to do so in an efficient manner. Any water in the fuel, will contaminate the engine. The most common fuel used for this here in the UK is...
