BEAK AG provides for maximum availability and reliability only one year of construction the new data center of EUMETSAT in Darmstadt opened. Thus, a highly available and secure data center for the operation of current and new generations of satellite available is the European operator organisation for meteorological satellites. The BEAK AG planned the entire electrical engineering and managed with the high technical standards of the building. EUMETSAT (European Organisation for the exploitation of meteorological satellites) headquartered in Darmstadt, Germany, operates various satellites continuously monitoring weather, climate and the environment. The data are made available a total of 26 Member States and five other cooperating States. So, the organization provides weather forecasts, warnings of extreme weather and weather-related disasters. With the new data center with a total of 3,400 m and IT area 1,000 m, the organization meets the ever-increasing amounts of data and the increasing need to Server capacity. So that all data can are available 365 days a year around the clock available, the BEAK AG had to provide available highest with their electrical planning an infrastructure.
The entire energy supply is planned after tier IV standard of the uptime Institute. Redundant medium voltage feeders of different substations as well as the mains replacement and equipment include the uninterruptible power supply in full 2 (n + 1) power after completion. The BEAK AG has fulfilled the high safety standards: widespread fire alarm systems with early ster ID, biometric access controls as well as a risk management and building management system ensure that the data center at any time is maximum protected. At the same time also the energy efficiency and environmental conservation were planning with in the foreground. « The building corresponds to the European code of conduct for data center efficiency », a code of conduct to the environmentally conscious and efficient handling and operation of data centers, aims, energy to save and to reduce the CO2 emissions. For example, the heat produced by the servers is derived and used for the heating of the neighboring office buildings.
