Data Center Fuel Oil System Case Study – Dual Ethernet

The data center operator required fast construction of a fuel system to support 8 generators of 2MW capacity each.  The generators were located inside the building with 2 generators per room. (5) Bulk storage tanks are located outside aboveground and remote from the building.

The system is designed to allow a complete dual path fuel feed from the bulk storage tanks to the generators. The control system is a redundant ethernet system between controllers allowing for a minimum of control signal wiring.

The case study includes details for consulting engineers and contractors to facilitate improved system designs for critical facilities.  Details include:

  • General Description of Fuel System
  • Design and Construction Challenges
  • Operation Sequence Summary
  • System Flow Diagram P&ID
  • Discussions of Special Operating Features

Learn about the project to improve the cost, schedule, and reliability performance of your next fuel oil system.
