EURO-DIESEL (UK) Ltd exhibited at Data Centre World 2016 at the London Excel on the 12-13 April. A major event in the Data Centre calendar - this year’s show was bigger and better than ever with over 250 exhibiting companies. With strong footfall to the EURO-DIESEL stand, the team were kept busy meeting new and existing contacts from across the industry.[+]
The first of eight 2500 kVA NO-BREAK KS®7e units’ arrived to its final destination in Singapore.
In early March, our Middle Eastern team participated in the Middle East Electricity exhibition which was held in Dubai. It was a great opportunity to present the many projects we have carried out in the region covering datacentres, airports and municipality applications and to share the impressive references EURO-DIESEL has received for these projects.

“Gazelles” is an organisation which recognises and reward fast growing companies and is part of the Belgium economic landscape. A strong and competitive company EURO-DIESEL more than meets the criteria for inclusion in the Trends Gazelles 2016.
We were nominated between 2002-2006 and received the title of Ambassador of Gazelles in 2012 in the large enterprise category for the province of Liège.[+]
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.[+]
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.
