Digitalization delivers efficiency out of the box, plus a future-proof platform for growth.


You don’t have to look very far to see evidence of the rapid growth of the data centre industry. Today, 100MW facilities are the norm for top-tier data centres, and the outlook going forward is for even more. IDC projects that “mega-data centres” will account for 70% of construction in the sector over the next few years.

The growth is being driven by both consumer-level demand in the form of streaming services, social media and other online commerce as well as the rise of IIoT applications for businesses of all stripes.

This White Paper from ABB, discusses the emergence of trends that appear likely to be with us for the forseeable future. It also recognises how much these trends will depend on digitalization; the use of data to operate, maintain and optimise equipment and processes.


This paper particularly focuses on switchgear, but the digitalization trend extends to other power system equipment as well.

In conclusion, this paper suggests that the challenge for data centre operators may well be an “embarrassment of riches” when it comes to the opportunities for fine-tuning operations that digitalization makes possible.
