3DC data center is designed to provide a scalable power infrastructure with the highest level of reliability. Our colocation center provides a minimum of N+1 redundancy for every power system element, delivering the highest power quality and uptime to our customers.

Our Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems prevent power spikes, surges, and brownouts while redundant backup diesel generator group provides additional fuel to keep the data center powered up in the event of public utility failure. The entire electrical system has built-in redundancy to ensure continuous operation.

Four independent electrical feeds @10kVA, to two different 110kVA grid sub-stations, are powering a transformer station with two redundant transformers. Sophisticated Automatic Transfer Switch system, designed with  Siemens components, reconfigures low voltage power sourcing, upon outages or excessive high urgencies fed into the UPS groups. Manual electrical power source selection system @ 10kV is in place, in case of need to switchover different power feeds.

Backup group of synchronized diesel generators in N+1 grade of redundancy provides power backup with no limitation on consecutive hours of operation. All cable paths, junction bars, foundations and ATS plugs and sockets are in place for in-service addition of diesel gensets in order to fulfill the planned maximum backup capacity.

AEG’s SVS series UPS system provide the two separate groups each with N+1 redundancy. Each UPS unit has it's own dedicated battery string with Exide’s batteries sized for 20 min backup time at full load.

The building has a newly redesigned and constructed lightning protection system with air terminals, down conductors and ground rods. All components in the data center rooms are also grounded for both equipment and occupant’s safety.

The Main Power Distribution Units (A&B) and the floor PDUs (A&B)  are based on ABB.

All power cable paths and systems are fully A+B redundant, using separate cable trays, routes, with all PDU’s, ATS and equipment separated physically in different rooms.
