The data center was designed for a Tier IV rating as defined by The Uptime Institute (fault tolerant/ concurrently maintainable). The chilled water plant consists of six 600 ton chillers in an N+2 arrangement. The plant is equipped for 3,600 tons of capacity to serve the 2,400 ton demand. The chillers are compartmentalized into three rooms with two chillers each. As such, an outage in one room will not affect the plant’s capacity to maintain the load. An outdoor thermal storage tank (135,000 gallons) is provided for continuous cooling.
The UPS Topology consists of three systems each configured in a 2(N+1) arrangement. Each system has a rated capacity of 2,700 kW (8,100 kW total) to support a critical load of more than 7,000 kW.
