Rentaload, the expert in commissioning solutions for data centres

What exactly is commissioning?

According to the American Society for Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), “ It is a quality-driven process for realising, evaluating and documenting that the performance of buildings, systems and assemblies meet initially well-defined objectives and criteria”.

It’s a meticulous process that is essential to ensure the quality and reliability of a new data centre.

“Done properly, commissioning improves system performance throughout the lifecycle of a data center. Better system performance not only helps optimize data center performance, but also lowers operating and maintenance costs. maintenance and reduce energy consumption for lower electricity bills.” – Michael Donato, Data Centre Knowledge.

Commissioning includes different levels of testing:

  • Level 1 : Factory Test or Factory Acceptance Test (FAT)
  • Level 2 : Inspection or on-site acceptance test (SAT)
  • Level 3 : Pre-functional testing (EPF) or component functional testing (EFC)
  • Level 4 : Functional Performance Test (FT) or Functional System Test (FST)
  • Level 5 : Integrated Systems Testing (IST)

Rentaload are generally engaged for levels 3, 4 and 5.
