Cobalt Data Center

Cobalt Data Center, Las Vegas NV

Project Description:

This project was a data center, specializing in secure, high-density, network-rich colocation delivered with exceptional customer service. Cobalt provides next-generation environmental systems, security, redundant power systems, and robust fiber networks that can host and accommodate requirements of the most demanding colocation customers.

Scope of Work:

TMCx Solutions provided Level 5 Integrated Systems Commissioning with multiple failure scenarios. Testing met NETA Standards, and included Circuit Breaker Primary Injection Testing, Power Thermography. During the pre-functional testing TMCx Solutions represented Cobalt to insure quality installation of the equipment contracted under our scope of work. This included site walks during the installation of the critical electrical equipment. We ensured the equipment was installed per construction documents and that the equipment ratings matched the submitted documents approved by Cobalt/Harris.

Challenges & Successes:

  • Issue: Generator Breaker Trip During cool-down/shutoff: This issue was identified during a test with a series of 3 simulated power interruptions. The importance of this is to note that this issue was completely unexpected, having worked multiple times prior to the issue.

          Resolution: During the re-test, the Generator technician stated that they resolved the issue by modification of a software timer in the shut-down  sequence. Why this particular issue was not apparent until the final testing is unknown. Further, during the re-test, the 2nd generator experienced the exact same issue. The software timer for that generator was also modified and the test of a series of 3 simulated power failures resumed and passed.
