nVent delivers cabinet solutions to ESS

Our member company nVent has completed an extensive order to ESS, thereby fulfilling a contract awarded after a call for tenders in 2017. The delivery concerns comprehensive cabinet solutions for the electrical/electronic equipment that controls the accelerator.

The solution from nVent met all specifications and requirements for containment, and was completed on time and within budget.

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity

Ulf Broome, regional account manager for nVent SCHROFF, explains why the company decided to submit a tender back in 2017.

“For many of us, this ambitious project is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Plus, we were confident from experience on other crucial physics and larger research centres that our extensive team and resources could deliver the ESS’ design, installation and delivery needs. We were thrilled when we learned we were awarded the contract!”

The final solution comprises 20 hot aisle containments, including over 900 19” Schroff Varistar racks, around 200 Varistar SHX cooling units, and close to 900 power distribution units (PDUs).

Congratulations, nVent!
