Critical facility problems include power and coolingreliability, hot spots, water
and fire risks and risks of life-safety systemsinadvertently crashing the facility.
UE’s root-cause analysis includesassessment and study, power quality
monitoring, airflow measurements andtesting.
Not all problems need to be
resolved, especially whereresolution is costly, risky or otherwise disruptive.
But to effectively livewith and manage a problem, the risks need to be fully
Many issues can be resolved at low cost and low risk.
UEis often engaged to dig into a failure, uncover the root cause and
UE is often brought in to resolve a specific
Failures, especially repeat failures causing unplanned downtime
Replacing and often re-configuring end-of-life equipment
Not enough white space, or too much white space
Not enough utility power, generator, UPS or PDU capacity
Not enough cooling capacity or hot spots/poor air management
Inability to perform required maintenance without presenting undue risk
Emergency Power Off (EPO) shutdown risk
Water intrusion risk
Physical security risk
UE can lead or assist with emergency replacement offailed equipment including UPS
systems, switchgear, generators and coolingequipment.
Challenges can include the
need to deploy temporary, rentalequipment and other work-arounds while permanent
equipment can be sourced andimplemented.
