Planned Maintenance: Full Load Generator Test

Posted: Thursday, January 18th, 2007 at 17:30 by Neil Watson

Following on from the completion of the upcoming power work, we will be conducting a full load generator test for our Telford Data centres on Tuesday 23rd January, 2007, post 20.00hrs. The switch to generator power is expected to take less than 20 seconds to complete, and a further switch to the second generator will be triggered by introducing a false low fuel alarm. The second generator will be brought on-line, before the first is taken down. The full test is not expected to take more than 5 minutes. All customers who have services in the Telford Data centres will be affected, however due to UPS protection, no outage is anticipated. During this time our support phones may also suffer some disruption. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
