NJFX Data Center Campus, MANASQUAN, NJ
The goal of our client was to construct the first Tier 3 carrier-neutral colocation data center campus that would link with the undersea cables from the United States, South America, Europe, and the Caribbean.
Forest Electric New Jersey was contracted by New Jersey Fiber Exchange (NJFX) for installation of electrical distribution at their new 64,800-square-foot data center. The Forest project management team delivered services on this very challenging project on time and on budget utilizing engineering planning, QA/QC, and frequent onsite visits from project management, superintendent, and engineering teams.
SCOPE OF SERVICES
Forest installed, on day one of the project, power distribution from the incoming JCP&L 15kV switch through the 15kV outdoor-rated switchgear to the 1500kVA transformers.The power continued via underground ductbanks into the building, feeding two2000A switchboards, two 1200A distribution boards, two 500 kVA UPS, one 1600AUPS panel, one 800A UPS panel, four 400A static switches, four 300kVa transformers, and four 800A distribution panels. Power was also brought in from two 1500KW generators.
In a globally connected world, NJFX helps businesses network and send their data between continents seamlessly. NJFX has eliminated the points of risk and time delay of the traditional model for this data traffic by building a colocation facility adjacent to a subsea cable landing station, allowing direct connectivity to Europe, South America, and the Caribbean.
