Data Center, T-Systems*

Biere, Germany

Construction of a new high-performance data center for cloud computing, providing 72 MW of power after overall completion, IT area 36,000 sqm

  • Integrated planning of electric power distribution using the SIMARIS design and SINCAL software tools

  • This allowed to match the power supply of the individual technical installations – air conditioning and refrigeration engineering, lighting, fire protection, security, and instrumentation and control – in all details

  • Use of Siemens power distribution systems for integrated and safe power supply


* Subsidiary of German Telekom

Products & systems by Totally Integrated Power applied

  • Network calculation is performed with SIMARIS design and SINCAL

  • 8 panels of the 30-kV gas-insulated medium-voltage switchgear type NXPLUS including SIPROTEC protection technology

  • 78 panels of the 20/10 kV gas-insulated medium-voltage switchgear type NXPLUS including SIPROTEC protection technology

  • 18 GEAFOL cast-resin transformers, output 2,500 kVA

  • 540 panels of the SIVACON S8 low-voltage switchboard

  • 4,200 m of the SIVACON 8PS busway system, system LXA: using busbars is particularly sited to data centers, since they are very robust and space-saving, and compared to cables they have a lower fire load. When the data center is extended, the busbars can be extended, too, without any problems and the connections can be modified in a flexible way that incurs little expense.
