July 20th, 2009 By: Rich Miller
Emerson Network Power has opened its new flagship data center at its headquarters in St. Louis, which showcases the company’s equipment and energy efficiency strategies. The facility features a rooftop solar array that will provide 100 kw of supplemental power, a high-voltage power distribution system using 240 volt power instead of 208 volt and Liebert XD high-density overhead cooling units,and follows Emerson’s Energy Logic guidelines throughout its design. The new data center is part of a broader consolidation in which the company will shift workloads from 100 sites into just four data centers. Emerson, which expects the facility to gain LEED Gold certification, will unveil its new St. Louis data center today and tomorrow in presentations for press and analysts. Here’s a 5-minute video that will introduce the new facility.
How large is the solar array? That must be a lot of roof…
Solar array is 7800 sq ft. Total square footage of the roof is 35,000 sq ft.
