Without power a business cannot function. The following factors are therefore key to the design of business-critical installations:
- Required power
- Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
A business-critical installation is not supposed to go down easily. To minimize the risk of failure, parts of the installation can be made double or multiple redundant. In this way, the installation will continue to operate when something goes down or needs to be maintained. In our designs we follow the TIER classification. This is an internationally accepted standard for data centres (TIER I to IV). The higher the classification, the higher the level of redundancy.
Interruptions can take place in public power networks. Usually, this is solved by using a combination of an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), for short interruptions, and an emergency generator, if the interruption lasts longer. We provide for the optimal combination of emergency power devices.
The new installation is supposed to have a long life expectancy. We offer scalable solutions, allowing for future extensions.
What exactly does the user need now and in the future? That is the starting question if we want to guarantee a future-proof, extendable installation.
ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
EMC is the ability of electrical devices to continue to operate properly despite interrupting powers, currents and the corresponding electro-magnetic fields of adjacent installations. We can advise you on installation practices to improve the EMC.
We offer the following services for new, modification or maintenance projects:
- Integrated and independent installation advice
- Financial and technical feasibility studies
- Pre-design and detailed design of electrical installations, taking account of all technical aspects, requirements, standards and regulations
- Drawing up specifications and Statements of Requirements (SOR) from design to commissioning, including drawings and calculations
- Supervising building processes
- (Approve)testing installations
- Writing instructions, specifications and handbooks
- Digitalizing and updating technical drawings in AutoCAD or MicroStation
- Managing technical information, including drawings
