Sprint Reston Regional Data Center

Sprint Reston Regional Data Center

The scope of work for this upgrade to a N+2 center involved 60,000 square feet of space and substantial power improvements. Two new redundant 2,000 kVA transformers were installed while the existing services remained fully operational. VarcoMac also installed two new 2,000 kW generators in parallel with one existing 2,000 kW generator. The generators were then connected to Sholtz custom paralleling switchgear which control the two new 4,000 amp main electrical services and the existing single 4,000 amp main electrical service. The power switchover of the data center's CRAC units and roof condenser units was completed successfully while the facility remained in full operation.
