The utility power infrastructure for this data center campus is designed to be scalable, concurrently maintainable and fault tolerant. The high voltage transmission and substation infrastructure will operate at 220kV.
This design is based on a resilient ring bus topology at the substation that eliminates single points of failure and provides large capacity and high power availability via diverse 220kV transmission connections.
The design and implementation of the power infrastructure was reviewed and approved by EirGrid and ESB. This design allows the owner to take advantage of Eirgrid’s transmission tariffs and high availability of the national 220kV transmission network in Ireland.
