EURO-DIESEL (UK) LTD is proud to announce their recertification by CHAS and the renewal of Safecontractor. CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) is rapidly becoming a construction industry standard. [+]
Each year, we ask EURO-DIESEL UK’s customers to let us know how we are performing by sending out a short questionnaire covering key areas of the business. We use the feedback from it to plan improvements in the services we provide and we enter responders’ names into a prize draw.[+]
EURO-DIESEL attended DCD at London ExCel on the 18 & 19 November 2015; a key exhibition in the Data centre events calendar with over 130 speakers giving 90 sessions over the two days. [+]
EURO-DIESEL continues to enjoy one of its busiest order books, with projects secured from all corners of the globe, and the Company is building on this momentum and strengthening its UK sales team. Rob Pitt, UK Managing Director comments: “We are enjoying significant sales growth in many of the markets we serve worldwide. Now is the time to capitalise on this momentum.
Lifting a 1500 kVA DRUPS onto the roof of a 10 storey building in one of the busiest areas of North London is no mean feat.[+]

The Uptime Institute has developed a Tier classification based upon four standards; Tier I to Tier IV.
The purpose of this standard is to equip the industry professionals with an objective way to evaluate the performance of a data centre or the quality of its design.
E1 DYNAMICS designs its systems according to the Tier classification criteria for data centre applications and has since implemented Tier I to a Tier IV (2N) configuration.
A Tier I is a basic design and can be a single system or multiple NO-BREAK KS® systems operating in a non-redundant capacity.
A Tier II NO-BREAK KS® design means that the power supply is guaranteed at N+1. For example, at LV or MV parallel configuration, all units supply to the load by means of one common output bus.
Concurrently Maintainable Infrastructure
A concurrently maintainable NO-BREAK KS® system means a redundant capacity (N+1) in combination with multiple independent power distribution paths, serving the computer equipments. Only one path needs to be active at any time. This means that each and every component in the NO-BREAK KS® system can be maintained at a regular basis without impacting the load.
During maintenance, the risk of a disruption may increase. An unplanned outage during these activities may gravely impact the load.
The utility power supply is considered the alternative power supply for Tier III applications and the NO-BREAK KS® is considered the main power source. As such, diesel engines cannot have any runtime limitations at N demand to meet Tier III, which means that the engine needs to be rated at "continuous power" and not at "standby power" or "prime power" rating. To meet Tier III, the NO-BREAK KS® units are configurated as a distributed redundant configuration or as an LV/ MV parallel configuration with a dual path downstream distribution system.
Fault Tolerant Site Infrastructure
A fault tolerant power supply has multiple physically isolated NO-BREAK KS® systems that provide both redundant (N+1) by separating active independent distribution paths which simultaneously power to the data centre load.
All single point failures are eliminated. A single failure of any component or at any point of the distribution will not impact the data centre load. Each and every component can be removed and maintained on a planned basis without impacting the data centre load.
In line with Tier III the diesel engine needs to be designed at its continuous power rating so that it has NO operating limitations while running at N for weeks or months.
The NO-BREAK KS® configuration consists of an independent A side (N+1) and an independent B side (N+1) powering the load by a dual distribution system. The A and B sides normally consist of multiple medium voltage NO-BREAK KS® systems.
