Case Study

Client | AO World PLC

The Solution

The new data centre was fitted with 8 x data cabinets installed in a cold aisle arrangement in 2 rows of 4 configuration. The facility was created to deliver a data centre capable of handling a maximum IT load of 48kW. This design delivered on all three core aspects and is a model that AO look to replicate across a planned European roll out. The average IT load was configured on 6kW per rack for all 8 cabinets.

Electrical

  • The data centre was fitted with a 250A Low Voltage (LV) electrical switchboard panel, automatic transfer switch (ATS), complete sub-main distribution breakers, with UPS bypass fitted with Castell interlock system.
  • A new sub main cable from the existing LV switch room on the ground floor was installed along with a new 250A MCCB to supply the new data centre LV panel.

Stockport Council Data Centre Build Project

Sudlows were appointed to design and build a new data centre facility for Stockport Council within a short time frame of just 7 weeks. Time-lapse cameras were installed on site to capture our Critical Infrastructures team working throughout the project.  The delivery of this facility has allowed Stockport MBC to start to migrate services from an existing, aging computer room, into a brand new, high efficiency, resilient data centre.

Sudlows are able to deliver innovative and creative technologies in order to provide reliable critical power solutions.

We source and install effective and resilient mission critical systems to provide instantaneous defence from power interruptions. 

  • UPS back-up systems
  • Standby Generators
  • Low/High Voltage (LV/HV) Switchgear

At Sudlows we believe an integrated, reliable and innovative back-up power system should be at the core of any mission critical environment. With over 100 years’ experience, we are able to work with you from installation, design and through to management.

  • Critical Power Energy Audit
  • Electrical Testing
  • Power Quality Analysis
  • Generators
  • Emergency Power Response
  • LV/HV Switchgear
  • Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS)
  • CHP (Combined Heat & Power)
  • Load Bank Testing
  • Flywheel Technology

As all projects and systems are unique, here at Sudlows we tailor and creatively design each critical power system to ensure the most resilient, cost effective and sustainable solution is delivered.

We have worked across an extensive range of projects delivering mission critical power to essential infrastructure for hospitals, broadcasters & transmission centres, banking and data centres.

With our expertise and proven record, we can guarantee resilient power continuity, ensuring uptime availability. By working with a dedicated team of electrical engineering specialists Sudlows can ensure the protection and safety of core power infrastructures.
