Power remediation works completed at QV1
We successfully completed power remediation works at QV1 on 18 October, following several power disruptions to the facility in recent months. Over what seemed like a never–ending night we installed a new UPS with better monitoring, a new automatic transfer switch and a new mechanical bypass for the UPS, as well as additional improvements to the redundancy of power feeds to each rack to eliminate single points of failure. This new equipment and configuration are designed to ensure a reliable source of power to all racks in the WA–IX room during power disruptions to the wider QV1 building. We thank everyone for their patience in waiting for this work to happen, but we wanted to make sure it went in right, which of course meant appropriate supervision of the work as it happened.
