FG Wilson Powering One of Russia’s Largest Data Centres

DataLine is a data centre operator in Moscow with Tier III uptime classification, meaning it has availability of 99.982% and no more than 95 minutes of interruption in a year with power systems capable of supporting the data centre for all routine maintenance.  The company has 535 business customers including major banks, retailers, online stores, social networks and media companies. 

Their most recent data centre, NORD-4, one of the largest in Russia, is now fully operational.  To meet Tier III standards, it relies on 16 FG Wilson P1700P1 generator sets with N+1 redundancy (if one fails, there is always another to back it up) powered by Perkins 4012-46TAG3A engines and installed and commissioned by FG Wilson dealer ERIMEX. 


After the completion of the project, Edward Dobryakov, Commercial Director of ERIMEX said: “We are very proud that we were chosen to execute such prestigious project. We have a long track record in projects like this and our big strength is our ability to modify designs to meet ever-changing site requirements.  This project really proved how flexible and efficient we are while working through complex and ever changing needs.  DataLine were very happy with the FG Wilson diesel generator sets, all delivered, installed and commissioned to their schedule.” 

Leonid Gorodtsov, FG Wilson Regional Manager for Russia and CIS said, “The project builds on a continuing excellent working relationship which we have with DataLine.
