The entire power supply of the Data Center Duesseldorf Connecta Park is implemented as a dual power plus emergency power supply with uninterruptible A and B power provisioning and additional redundant power provisioning for all critical technical building systems such as air-conditioning, cooling, ventilation and security systems. In addition, the data center Duesseldorf Connecta Park has two feeds on the 10 kV level.
UPS and associated battery systems are designed redundantly for each A and B supply and can bridge the power supply for at least 15 minutes at 100% maximum load level. The generators are controlled automatically, so that the generators start on their own if power supply should be unsteady or fail. The available fuel can power the entire electricity supply of the data center for 24 hours without interruption (24/ 7 agreement with local fuel supplier).
For the interior of the colocation area of the Data Center Duesseldorf Connecta Park, special, non – combustible or very flame-resistant materials were used exclusively. Individual data center areas are divided into separate fire protection zones. Extensive fire fighting and fire protection systems are installed in each zone.
Physical, technical, and personnel safety is ensured by a 6-level security system that monitors everything from the data center grounds and the respective buildings, through to the colocation area and individual systems:
