Advanced has partnered up with Roberts Fire Protection to supply an intelligent fire system to Hydro-Québec’s new data centre, currently under construction near Montréal.

Hydro-Québec is the world’s largest hydroelectric producer, generating more than 99 percent of its electricity from water. 

The company has commissioned a consortium including Veolia, Pomerleau and Ehvert to finance, design, build and operate a new dedicated data centre located just outside of Montréal for its operations. The centre will see its power capacity expand progressively from 1.6 megawatts (MW) over the 20-year contract period.

Hydro-Québec’s data centres are dedicated spaces in which the company can keep and operate its ICT infrastructure. Data centres typically have a strictly controlled environment in terms of temperature and humidity and include over C$100 million of equipment such as power supplies, backup power, chillers, cabling, fire and water detection systems and security controls.

The Axis AX panels feature intelligent single and multi-looop, networkable fire alarm control panels with a complete range of SLC loop devices, extensive peripherals, NAC and conventional devices.
