Installation updates – Power connected to BTDC

Construction of the facility’s electrical connection has been completed – a few more days to go and BODENS ENERGI AB (with the help of local subcontractors) will energize the data center – thus bringing the prototype of BodenTypeDC to life.

Other construction works are running in parallel: a local building partner is painting the suspended ceiling, the Swedish consortium member RISE SICS North is installing optical cables, a Finnish subcontractor is producing the air intake louvres. In the meantime English consortium member EcoCooling have dispatched cooling machinery for the data center from their CloudCooler range, including ECV18000 freecoolers and ECT10800 evaporative coolers.The shipment will travel via truck-ship-train-truck.

More locally, RISE SICS North will soon deliver the servers from the neighbouring town of Lulea for research support. Everything is on track to finish the prototype on time (before the end of November) so that energy efficiency testing can start during the winter. This gives a full year for test activities to reach ambitious project aims regarding energy- and cost efficiency in DC construction and operation.
