This presentation focuses on the special challenges of upgrading the electrical and mechanical systems of a live data center. This situation is frequently encountered in a facility with aging infrastructure and compelling reasons to maintain operations in that location. The challenge initially involves needing to understand the existing facility very well; and evaluate its potential for upgrade and improvement. Moving beyond design, it becomes critically important to collaborate with the owner and construction partners to implement the upgrade in strategic phases with acceptable risks. Finally, through carefully planned commissioning, the owner needs to be confident the upgraded facility will perform to expectations.
