Here’s a picture of the water tower in our new section (left picture). Yesterday, the water tower and the pumps system (right picture) were put in function. Therefore, our machine room located in zone 3 on the map at the bottom of the page is now air-conditioned adequately. In a few weeks, we shall also proceed to put in function the dedicated server and colocation zone.
Zone 6: Generator and drain system phase2
Here’s a picture of a trench for the drain system. To avoid water accumulation on the new section side and of the back field, a drain system was needed. Trenches also serve as means of transportation to furnish our water tower. On the second picture, our generator inside a new shelter. The previous container was temporary and intended only for transport. It was replaced by a permanent container provided with access doors making it more accessible to our staff.

Zone7: Hydro Electric Room phase2
Here’s a picture of the electric room managed by Hydro-Quebec (left picture). It is in this room that the final installation of the new 6000A electric entry at our Web-CL data center was realized last week. This long installation which lasted 12 hours also included the connection of two transformers on a fuse base (among which one is illustrated on the right picture).
Zone3: Machine Room phase2
Here are some pictures of our mechanical room. Some days ago, 2 air conditioning units of 20 ton capacity each were delivered. Both units will be connected before next Friday on the mezzanine, they will be set up on a steel structure which will also support several transformers and filters to assure the stability of our electric architecture.
