Installation of switchgear for a cloud data center


What happens during this installation?

In June 2022, together with our partners from STS Group – Dussmann and Zauner Group, Montron GmbH began installing switchgear at the Schwechat location. The entire project coordination was taken over by Montron GmbH. It was crucial to organize and coordinate the various participating companies in advance and on-site. In total, more than 60 systems (100kg – 42,000kg) will be lifted and installed in this project. The installed systems are an essential part of a well-known software company’s cloud data center.
The systems, which can be up to 18m long and 4m wide, must be placed with an accuracy of +-0.5cm.

Lifting work of insertion

What is the biggest challenge during the installation?

Operations of this nature must always comply with applicable safety standards. On a busy construction site with a total of 300 people in a confined space, the lift of the 18m-long systems is particularly challenging. No one other than the Montron coordinator’s team should be within the entire lifting radius to ensure no one is endangered. For many systems, special feet had to be mounted before the final placement. The system was lifted on a low-loader so that the system’s base feet could be installed. This required precise teamwork.

We take care of machine transport, which, if necessary, can be organized and carried out as a special or heavy transport. At the destination, we perform machine installation and assembly according to your layout plan properly and precisely. By combining machine dismantling, machine transport, and machine assembly in one package, you save valuable time and money. Our experienced staff is already familiar with most machine and system configurations, eliminating the need for them to familiarize themselves with the assembly process. This eliminates coordination time between multiple companies and waiting time for external technicians.
