Nexans Power Up Interxion's London Data Centres
Nexans Lineax H07RN-F cables chosen for data centre projects
Nexans are helping to power Interxion’s London data centres supplying both standard XLPE SWA mains power cables and Nexans Lineax H07RN-F cables. Palfreyman Power Limited equipped 50,000sq ft space in the Old Truman Brewery, East London with electrical and mechanical infrastructure including: climate control, fire detection, gas suppression, security & CCTV, leak detection, power, standby power, cabling and containment.
Power cables were installed under raised anti-static computer flooring and Nexans Lineax H07RN-F cable was selected to power the mission critical facilities including: five back-up generators, tri-vector UPS systems, four 11kv/400v transformers, switchgear and intelligent PDU’s.
Nexans worked closely with Harding Electrical in Stoke-on-Trent to project manage the stock of pre-cut lengths to ensure the cable could be called off as and when required. One of the main challenges was delivering the product into central London on a timed delivery basis with limited space for off-loading. Due to space limitations on site Nexans also collected the empty cable drums once the cable had been installed.
Paul Gibson of Palfreyman Power Limited said ‘we needed a power cable that was highly robust but flexible enough to cope with the height restrictions on site which meant a cable was required that could be installed around a tight bending radius’.
Nexans Lineax H07RN-F flexible power cable has a maximum operating temperature of 85o for fixed installations and was installed using trefoil cleats. Lineax H07RN-F cables have excellent mechanical resistance to impacts and are available in a wide range of sizes.
