Siemens Gamesa opts for containerised DC at Hull factory

05 December 2023

Renewable energy company Siemens Gamesa has gone live with a flagship ModCel containerised data centre design at its renewable energy manufacturing facility in Hull, courtesy of Secure I.T. Environments Ltd, (SITE).

The 3.6m cube ModCel data centre will support production systems and communications at the site, which manufactures wind turbines and other products. Designed to withstand the environmental condition of a dock-based manufacturing facility, the ModCel also includes security features to ensure services and equipment are protected, complying with the LPS1175 standard.

The data centre contains two 48U 1200mm deep cabinets as well as all the power, cooling and safety equipment that would be expected in a typical data centre build. Four PDUs provide controlled power distribution with rackmount UPS in each cabinet.
