US financial services giant, JPMorgan Chase (JPMC) unveiled its plans to build a new multi-million-pound base for its technology operations in Glasgow. As a result, planning permission was granted for a 13-storey, 270,000 sq ft building located on Argyle Street, in the heart of Glasgowʼs international financial services district.
DTGen was appointed by FES, the M&E contractor for the development, to provide the emergency standby power solution.
DTGen provided a full turnkey solution for the client. The application would traditionally be powered by standard diesel, but as part of our transition roadmap as well as supporting businesses that are looking to reduce their carbon footprint, the system is fuelled by HVO instead, thus reducing the CO2 by 90%.
The 2750 kVA, 11kV high-voltage emergency standby generator was installed in a 75 dBA rooftop container along with a 32,000-litre fuel tank and a complex power management system to ensure continuity of mission-critical systems in the event of a power outage.
Our well-established track record in major infrastructure projects and in the financial services sector meant DTGen was the safe choice for this installation.
Working in strategic partnership with Certas Energy, a UK-leading energy and fuels provider, weʼre supporting the carbon reduction journey to net zero. By replacing 34,000 litres of diesel with HVO, weʼre saving 91,460 Kg of carbon, and reducing the production of greenhouse gases by 90%.
