Data Centre – Kirby Group

Project Description: Telecity NWBP Data Centre Chilled Water System, Dublin
Project Consultant: Axis Engineering
PSCS: Structuretone Ltd.
Contract Value: €900,000
Contract Duration: 5 months

MSL Engineering Ltd were contracted to fabricate, deliver, install and test the chilled water piping system to PDI Level 2 standards. The data centre chilled water system included 1,700metres of carbon steel pipework ranging in sizes from ¾” (20mm) to 24” (600mm). MSL used 435 spool fabrication drawings generated from BIM modelling software to fabricate all pipework in flanged sections in MSL’s Cork Fabrication Facility. These flanged sections were subjected to NDE and painted prior to transportation to Dublin for assembly onsite.

Due to laydown constraints onsite MSL incorporated a Just In Time delivery philosophy into the construction schedule. This required careful planning and co-ordination at every stage over the four month installation period. Every flange on this system was torqued to the required setting, witnessed by the client and recorded prior to hydrostatically pressure testing the system.

The Chilled Water System QA/QC hand over pack to the client included red-lined piping isometric drawings, marked up P&IDs (process and instrument drawings), weld logs and associated NDE (non destructive examination) reports, pressure test sign off certs with pressure gauge calibration certs and flange torqueing records.
