We've been appointed for the emergency power solution at Datavita’s new data centre in Glasgow.
At the 177 Bothwell Street, city-centre site, we're supplying two 2.5MVA generators complete with a control system that will cover switching between both dual mains supplies and the back-up synchronising generators.
The generators are located high in the city centre skyline on the building rooftop in bespoke acoustic enclosures. Each generator runs off its own day tank with an auto fuel fill system in place from ground floor bulk storage tanks.
Joe Skillin, Major Projects Manager at DTGen said: “Whilst we’ve delivered many power solutions for data centres throughout the UK, we’re delighted to be working with Datavita again, right here in Glasgow, following our successful delivery of the solution for Fortis data centre. We’re currently carrying out the installation in a live building, which has a number of challenges, but the generators have already been craned into position during a weekend, and now it’s hands on deck working towards completing the installation.”
The new data centre is a highly resilient, purpose-built facility, and of tier III design, with 130 racks worth of space. With excellent fibre connectivity and highly efficient cooling using green energy, the data centre will have an exceptional level of physical security as well as flexibility for customers.

Graeme Logie, Operations Director at Datavita, said: “We know that DTGen has the experience and technical capabilities to safely and competently manage the city centre installation of the emergency power solution at our new data centre.”
