2 Project Riker- Quincy, Washington
Envisioned Delivered Designed in conjunction with an enterprise customer Provisioned to support up to 9 MW of critical IT load at full capacity Located on 101,000 m² of land and architected to provide extraordinary business resiliency in support of mission critical systems The 12,350 square meter facility features 5,575 square meters of raised floor data center space Designed to operate at a highly efficient annualized PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) of 1.3 or below

3 Innovation that EXCITEs
1 Master Planning for Future Capacity 2 Medium Voltage Redundancy and Scalability Mechanical Redundancy and Scalability 3 4 Environmental Stewardship 5 Commitment to Excellence

4 Electrical Scalability
1 Electrical Scalability The data center was designed to be scalable from 1.5MW to 9MW without disruption to the load within the same geographic footprint using some of the following measures: Full sized medium voltage distribution switchgear Fully provisioned underground conduit, pads, roof penetrations, support structures for generator plant and low voltage distribution equipment Detailed expansion plans, isolation measures, and transfer sequences to allow for installation and testing of newly added components in operating data center

5 Electrical Scalability (Contd.)
1 Electrical Scalability (Contd.) Conduit stub-outs for future electrical gear that were poured into the slab as part of the initial build

6 Medium Voltage Redundancy and Scalability
2 Medium Voltage Redundancy and Scalability Utility Information Phase 1 of this project utilized a single utility feed from the street The system was designed with the capability to add a second feed for added reliability at the utility level without disruption of power to the load Site and Facility Redundancy The medium voltage system was designed with 2N redundancy throughout the facility This redundancy is carried from the utility down to the PDU level Benefits include: Increased system reliability Decreased risk of power failures Allows for the highest level of redundancy at the load Operability and Maintenance Concurrent maintainability Fault tolerance Load transfer by switching downstream at all levels including medium voltage switchgear, low voltage switchgear or PDU level Each PDU (2N redundancy) has an ATS that allows it to perform closed transition transfers to the alternate source

7 Medium Voltage Parallel Switchgear
2 Medium Voltage Parallel Switchgear Benefits: Highly scalable Common redundancy for reduced components Right sized for entire facility Potential Risks: Concurrent maintainability Potential single point of failure with common output bus How Risk Was Mitigated: Two independent output buses at the parallel switchgear Allows for both concurrent maintenance as well as fault tolerance Upon failure of one side due to internal fault, the automated sequence allows for programmed fault clearing capabilities and recovery to the alternate bus

8 Electrical Efficiency Measures
2 Electrical Efficiency Measures The electrical design also aimed to take advantage of a combination of proven efficient technologies and creative applications where possible LED parking lot lighting significantly reduces power usage by 96,000 hours when compared to standard fixtures Occupancy sensors were installed in all occupied areas including data center, office and corridors. With almost 600 lights in the data center alone, significant power savings are realized when the space is unoccupied and the occupancy sensors power off the lights High efficiency UPS modules were installed with efficiency ranges between 96-97% under normal operation compared to 92-95% from other manufacturers Voltage is stepped up from the output of the UPS from 480V to 600V to reduce line losses (particularly for longer cable runs) from the electrical room to the data center floor

9 Mechanical Redundancy and Scalability
3 Mechanical Redundancy and Scalability Indirect evaporative heat exchangers and redundant process water mains. Mechanical rooms are pre-built to accommodate future equipment as IT load ramps higher

10 Mechanical Redundancy and Scalability (Contd.)
3 Mechanical Redundancy and Scalability (Contd.) Current Configuration In the initial phase of the project mechanical equipment was installed in the built-up air handling rooms to support 1.5 MW of IT infrastructure. All major components are installed with a N+20% level of redundancy for concurrent maintainability. The continuous under floor supply plenum enables a dynamic IT build out, which can be concentrated anywhere within the 5,575 square meter white space without impact to cooling delivery. Future Capabilities The entire building is pre-provisioned to scale up to 9 MW of critical IT load without impact to the operational white space. Steel support structures for heat exchangers and fans are in place, along with 2N piping mains to serve future equipment. Blanking panels are installed throughout allowing the ability to locate equipment in multiple different configurations to best serve the installed load.

11 Mechanical Efficiency Measures
3 Mechanical Efficiency Measures The power usage of HVAC systems drive a building’s PUE, leading the design for this facility to be focused on mechanical efficiencies. The following measures were implemented: Recirculated airstream- This system utilizes a recirculating air stream to cool the data hall. It allow for the protection of the IT equipment from the outside environment. Dust storms, volcanic ash and/or smoke in the atmosphere will not be introduced to the live environment. Additionally it eliminates large filter banks which simplifies the major maintenance calendar and overall operational costs as filters would be replaced every 4 months or less. Reduced pressure drop- The exclusion of outside air filter banks means a total static pressure reduction of 1.0”wg which is realized 24/7 and relates directly to supply fan power. Ventilation air is provided via a dedicated makeup air unit with MERV 13 filters to satisfy all local codes and LEED requirements. In addition the raised access floor is 48” from the slab below which allows the air to flow more slowly and with less turbulence and lower pressure drop Elevated supply temperatures- In conjunction with the building occupant the mechanical system was designed to operate within the ASHRAE allowable window for Class A1 environments. The average room temperature is a minimum of 5°C warmer than spaces operating within the ASHRAE recommended window, making this building much more efficient than the typical wholesale environment

12 Mechanical Efficiency Measures Cont’d
3 Mechanical Efficiency Measures Cont’d Water conservation- The jurisdiction where this facility is located has limited city water resources. In an effort to minimize water usage the mechanical system can operate solely using dry air-to-air heat exchange in outdoor temperatures as high as 10°C. Through winter months no water at all is required, reducing the yearly water usage and maintenance costs associated with filtration and water softening Containment- Custom fabricated hot aisle containment panels are installed at every IT row, including fiber distribution areas. The assembly features gasketed connections, self-closing doors and removable blanking panels that result in an extremely tight envelope to eliminate thermal pollution Custom-designed containment

13 Commitment to Environmental Stewardship
4 Commitment to Environmental Stewardship Designed from the beginning to be sensitive to the surrounding environment, the Vantage Quincy campus features state-of-the-art systems including: A custom-developed indirect evaporative cooling system designed to eliminate impact from outdoor conditions through a closed loop cooling delivery infrastructure EPA Tier 4 generators that reduce emissions by 90-95% when compared to traditional generator deployments, and LED driven lighting designed to significantly reduce energy use LEED Platinum Certification (Expected to Receive) 40% reduction in water usage within the building 50% reduction in water usage through water efficient landscaping 25% reduction in lighting power usage 75% diverted waste from landfill during construction 20% use of recycled content Energy Efficient System Design Overall building energy usage is 20% more efficient than the average data center Accomplished using electrical components with low losses and a mechanical system optimized with low pressure drops and smaller fan motors Energy Star All appliances are Energy Star certified for increased building efficiency.

15 Emission Controls- Standby Generators (Contd.)
4 Emission Controls- Standby Generators (Contd.) Vantage’s Riker data center is designed with EPA Tier 4 compliant continuous duty diesel engines.
