UPS for new Reading data centre

Jan 23, 2013 | UPS & Standby Power

Borri has been named as the primary UPS supplier for a major new start-up co-location facility in Reading.

Launched by Everest Data Centres and due to be operational by the summer, the first phase of the 6.5MVA data centre has the potential to house up to 1,000 rack footprints, capable of supporting rack power densities up to 35kW with separate A+B power supplies. Borri has so far been commissioned to supply ten B9600FXS units, which make up a total of 4MVA.

In addition, the B9600FXS units will provide Everest Data Centres with the flexibility of choosing when to run the units in online double conversion or ECO mode, to further reduce energy costs, depending on the load requirements throughout the lifecycle of the data centre.

Commenting on the new venture, Everest Data Centre owner, Ed Butler said, “The launch of this new co-location facility in Reading is an extremely exciting time for the business. We have put a lot of time into the design and are confident that we will have one of the most resilient data centre infrastructures along the M4 corridor.

“Borri has an impressive reputation within the data centre market for delivering reliable back-up power solutions. Not only this, but the company has an unparalleled understanding of the demands and environmental pressures placed on data centres and knows the precise requirements for the chosen UPS systems.

“We have been thoroughly impressed with the performance and efficiency of Borri’s B9600FXS range and the quality of service we have been provided with has been second to none. We look forward to continuing to work with Borri for many years to come.”
