Gomero SIPP data center Australia

Gomero receives first order to use SIPP at data centers

The Australian Electricity Grid Company Essential Energy have chosen Gomerus connected control equipment SIPP for a major data center project north of Canberra. The project, which is Essential Energy's first of its kind, includes a large so-called zone transformer station that uses environmentally friendly ester oil for cooling the transformers. In the event of a potential leak from the transformer, Gomero's SIPP Node works effectively for the detection of both ester and mineral oil. SIPP is today the only approved technology to be able to detect both ester and mineral oil down to 1 PPM. Essential Energy has signed the new agreement with Gomero's local partner KingHill.

The automated environmental protection of the oil catch pit under the transformer is an important part of the digitalization of maintenance work and meets the increasingly high environmental requirements for critical infrastructure. Essential Energy has been using it before SIPP at several of its substations.

Demanding market that lies far ahead

To Essential Energy again choosing SIPP for a project that is in line with their long-term strategy around digitization and green transition feels like an important success. This applies especially in light of the fact that Australia is a market that has come a long way and where very high environmental and security requirements for participating actors. The deal is also proof that our investment in data centers as an important growth segment is beginning to show results. It is a sector where we see potential in all markets, says Gomero CEO Jan-Eric Nilsson.

Gomera is the only player on the market with a certified solution that can detect environmentally friendly ester oil down to 1 ppm. The fact that SIPP, after a demanding evaluation of cyber security, has also been approved by another local network company in Australia gives us a very good position for the future, comments Jonas Lindholm, CEO of KingHill.
