Hanley Energy opens data centre R&D hub
6 August 2015 | 0
The energy and critical power management company Hanley Energy has opened a new data centre research and development hub at its offices in Stamullen, county Meath.
The new research facility can simulate designs and installations to give granular visibility and control of solutions. Engineers and designers can not only refine solutions but can also be fully trained before implementation. Changes and future developments can be modelled for their benefits and effects, allowing for controlled change with minimal impact.
Speaking at the opening, Minister of State at the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Gerald Nash TD, said that Hanley Energy was a prime example of an Irish company that was founded in the midst of recession and yet has developed a world class set of technologies. The Minister highlighted the company’s recent expansion, with offices in Sweden, Germany and the United States, that allowed it to compete on the international stage. Acknowledging the support of government and agencies such as Enterprise Ireland, the Minister praised the company for its innovation and professionalism in developing its power management and control technologies for data centres, as well as other sectors such as transport and food.
The data centre research and development hub allows Hanley Energy to simulate, test and refine solutions in its core areas of uninterrupted power supply (UPS), changeover control panels and event and power monitoring systems (EPMS).
The company also provides solutions for rapid IT deployment with its ‘data centre in a box’ solutions, PowerHive.
