Norfolk Southern Data Center

Tucker, GA

The project began with the demolition of the existing data center. Major items that were installed include a 2,000-KW CAT back-up generator, associated Piller paralleling switchgear, a new Piller UPS system and associated switchgear / equipment. We also added new power distribution and wiring throughout, as well as new 500-ton chiller plant with associated pumps and piping and a new supplemental air conditioning and chilled water piping system.

One of the largest undertakings was the complete installation of Norfolk Standard Rack and Cabinet system, wire management and all associated fiber / cable. The impressive new building system is inclusive of building management system (BMS), security, fire alarm and leak detection. The build-out of the office / management space and New Business Recovery Units are capable of seating 450 persons. Prior to turnover, this facility was tested implying full electrical and mechanical loads through use of load banks. This fully integrated testing and commissioning process assures Norfolk Southern that its facility will be capable of growing and expanding throughout the next several years.
