Siemens has implemented new automated solutions and AI in the Baltic region's largest data center, providing insight into the future of data center management.

The company's building management software (BMS), energy and power management software (EPMS) and White Space Cooling Optimisation (WSCO) technology have been implemented to help Greenergy Data Centers lower energy usage, ensure thermal protection and manage the reliable operation of the critical infrastructure.

The new developments come as part of Siemens Desigo CC solution, which is an integrated building management platform from Siemens Smart Infrastructure that connects and controls critical and non-critical building systems.

Using a single control panel, operators will be able to visualise, monitor, control and optimise critical building management systems, energy performance and the WSCO. There are also advanced power and energy distribution management features.

The data center, located in Tallinn, Estonia, targets a Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) value of 1.2 against an industry average of around 1.6. Siemens AI-powered software is said to optimise cooling for energy efficiency and reliable operation of critical infrastructure.

Customised power distribution systems aim to help ensure a reliable, safe power supply to the data center. At the same time, the center is also powered by renewable energy, with the ability to sell waste heat.

Greenergy Data Centers CDO Kert Evert says the new complex is a significant example of the role automation technology plays in creating efficient and well-run data centers. He says the worldwide relevance of Siemens technology will help data centers in all regions achieve their goals.

"This new complex conforms to all of the highest international security standards, and aims to operate at 25% higher energy efficiency than the markets average," he says.

"Working with Siemens we are able to have a single-vendor concept from A-Z, and together we have created the regions most advanced and efficient data center, creating more favorable conditions for both foreign and local companies to offer their services on the Estonian or Baltic markets. Technologically speaking, we are at the absolute top of the world."

As of September 30, 2021, Siemens SI has around 70,400 employees worldwide and is headquartered in Zug, Switzerland. Siemens AG has approximately 303,000 employees worldwide.

AG works across various sectors to help create resource-efficient factories, resilient supply chains, and smart buildings and grids. They also work across the transportation sector as well as advanced healthcare, while SI specialises in efficiently connecting energy systems, buildings and industries.
