Friday, January 3rd, 2020

The European Data Centre in Greater Istanbul, Turkey, has been designed to meet the Uptime Institute’s Tier 3 standard – which means no more than 1.6 hours of down-time in a year.  FG Wilson Turkey has been working closely with the designers, builders and owners to ensure that the data centre’s power needs are fully met and many technical meetings have been held both in Turkey and in Larne, UK, where the generator sets have been produced and tested. 

The installed generator sets, powered by 4012 Series engines, have a capacity of 20 MVA. The design includes double-walled fuel tanks, fuel polishing system, fuel control systems, advanced synchronization panels with PLC system, special container systems for sound insulation and weatherproof purposes, critical type exhaust silencers and over 20 metres of exhaust piping systems.
