Englewood Data Center Decom Project
The Generator Source purchasing team was busy in Englewood, CO decommissioning a Generac from a RigNet site that was no longer in use. The generator was used as backup for their Data Center and was no longer needed due to the building being sold.
What challenges did the team face?
One of the biggest challenges our team faced was that the project had to be completed by the end of the year but couldn't be started prior to Dec. 5. So a tight deadline was overcome, but space constraints were actually a bigger obstacle as the unit was in a tight area which made crane and truck placement a challenge. The generator was located in a small area behind the building leaving little space for any error. To make sure everything went smoothly, we worked closely with GC Snyder Building Construction to meet all the timelines, help with permits and most importantly, all safety measures on this secure site.
What Was Done To Complete the Project?
For starters, we disconnected all cables from the generator circuit breakers for the unit. Then we disconnected and removed the circuit breaker cabinet. Next, we prepared the generator and enclosure for the crane lift out of the spot.
Then we prepared the generator and enclosure for shipping. That included loading the 300 kW unit onto the truck and trailer and then made the trip north to Brighton, CO. We then received and unloaded the generator and are already preparing the generator for sale by performing our 31-point inspection.
