GF Piping Systems Case Study – Stay Cool With Piping Systems Training

Read this case study from Georg Fischer Piping Systems. It describes their work with Kirby Group Engineering during the construction of a data centre in Zurich, Switzerland.

The Project Background

Kirby Group Engineering began construction of a 10MW cooling capacity data centre in Zurich in 2020.

For data centres, the cooling plant is mission critical and for Kirby, finding professional qualified personnel to install the cooling system is key.  Time pressures on construction sites mean that installers have to work quickly and accurately, so contractors and personnel are required to be trained and certified correctly.

This is where Georg Fischer Piping Systems were able to help.

The Solution

GF Piping Systems instruction courses teach installers essential knowledge for the welding of pipes and piping components, as well as in-depth understanding of butt and electrofusion jointing.

Kirby entrusted GF Piping Systems to provide in-house and on-site training to Kirby installers to ensure the installation of the plastic pipes was performed and a quality control process was put in place.

The Outcome

Despite 2020 being a difficult year due to the pandemic, with the help of GF Piping Systems, Kirby were able to successfully progress with the data centre build schedule as originally planned.
