Startup Services

When launching new facilities or adding power equipment to existing ones, you want reassurance that is has been done right before it begins to support your business-critical equipment downstream. Doing so requires experience with new data center installations along with equipment expertise. Knowing what to look for prior to initial energization ensures you won’t inadvertently damage your equipment or create safety hazards that put your business at risk.

Vertiv’s startup services ensure that equipment complies with purchase specifications and design intent, and that all components work together properly. This critical process helps ensure project requirements are met for your complete satisfaction.
