EPSA is well-equipped to support this growth with market-leading Cat® solutions for critical data facilities, which house computer, telecommunications and storage systems for businesses capitalising on this trend. This includes a new business relationship with a leading global e-commerce and technology business that is building two new data centres, its first in Australia.
EPSA’s NSW/ACT Regional Manager Jon Coles says EPSA worked with the client and its consultants over a nine-month period to design and provide the best technical power solution for its new Australian sites.
“As the client is also a global Cat customer, we worked closely with our local Caterpillar representative, Adrian Constable, and Cat’s Global Account Manager to ensure alignment and consistency with other projects occurring around the globe.
“Cat also assisted us with the provision of build slots on short notice, helped by a global forecast for builds from the client.
“Our current scope of work includes the supply and installation of multiple Cat 3516BHD generator sets, and the design, supply and installation of bulk fuel systems, generator switch boards, air handling, noise attenuation and exhaust systems,” says Jon.
"AS THE CLIENT IS ALSO A GLOBAL CAT CUSTOMER, WE WORKED CLOSELY WITH OUR LOCAL CATERPILLAR REPRESENTATIVE"
“We will also commission the complete system and provide assistance with the full site commissioning when it happens during the year.
“The timeline for completion of both sites is in March and we are working with the local Cat servicing dealer WesTrac to determine the optimal way to provide the level of on-going support required.”
