Power Control Safeguards the Data Centre’s of Tomorrow

The solution and results

Following a full assessment of the company’s design requirements, Power Control’s proposal included the supply, install and commissioning of two modular 500kVA Huawei UPS5000-E systems with 50kW modules. The project also included the safe removal of the data centre’s existing equipment and batteries.

This fully resilient backup power solution was chosen as it not only meets the needs of today but can also be scaled to meet the requirements of the future, which was a key objective for Redcentric.

Prior to the works being carried out, the Huawei UPS5000-E UPS solution was witness tested and all UPS functions and performance were verified by an independent consultant.

Working in a live data centre environment and to extremely strict timescales, the two 500kVA Huawei UPS5000-E systems are now supporting the full data centre IT load at Redcentric’s London Data Centre in Shoreditch.

Positioned in an N+N configuration, the two new Huawei UPS5000-E solutions are already delivering significant efficiency savings and annual maintenance costs are also reduced thanks to the sophisticated design of the Huawei UPS5000-E.
