Diesel Generator at Data Center Installation

New Project

In 2018, a customer needed generator backup to support its central data center.  This data center supported manufacturing, warehousing and sales staff at a number of customer locations.

IEA was able to redeploy an inventory diesel generator with on board switchgear to meet the customer’s need.  Owing to the time the unit was in storage, the unit received comprehensive maintenance including a coolant flush, oil change, new filters, belts, hoses, batteries, blow open exhaust louvers, and jacket water heater.  In addition, the unit was thoroughly cleaned and the enclosure repainted.

From its arrival onsite to its prepared concrete base and pre-trenched conduit and cabling, on-site construction was only 2 weeks and the project was completed at a cost of ~$160,000.
