Secure I.T. Environments has announced that Siemens Gamesa, a world leader in wind powered renewable energy, has gone live with a flagship ModCel containerised data centre design at its renewable energy manufacturing facility in Hull.
The 3.6m cube ModCel data centre will support production systems and communications at the site, which manufactures industry leading wind turbines amongst other products. Designed to withstand the environmental condition of a dock-based manufacturing facility, the ModCel also includes security features to ensure services and equipment are protected, complying with the LPS1175 standard.
The data centre contains two 48U 1200mm deep cabinets as well as all the power, cooling and safety equipment that would be expected in a typical data centre build. Four PDUs provide controlled power distribution with rackmount UPS in each cabinet. The data centre will receive additional back-up power from an existing generator on site. Cooling is provided via four externally mounted downflow AirSys Unicool AHU units, configured to provide N+1 cooling, fed to cabinets through raised flooring. The data centre also includes LED PIR lighting, fire suppression systems, and is fire rated to one hour.
Chris Wellfair, Projects Director at Secure I.T. Environments, added: “Our ModCel data centre designs are raising the bar on what customers can expect from a containerised data centre facility. Whether a unit to provide redundancy, meet temporary needs, work in harsh environments or support mission critical applications, a Secure I.T. Environments ModCel data centre can meet any challenge.”
