13-Sep-2020 - Tor1/151 Front St. Power Maintenance/Diesel Day

Post by porcupine »

Hello Everyone,

Please be advised of the following maintenance window:

Maintenance Window: Sunday September 13th, 2020; 8:00AM - 6:15PM Eastern Time
Facility: Tor1
Affected Device: Primary power feeds
Affected Customers: All customers
Service Impacting: No - Precautionary maintenance notice

Details: This maintenance notice is being issued with regards to the 151 Front St. W. building hydro shut-down.

Approximately once every 18 months, 151 Front St. W. shuts down all of its utility power, and removes itself from the commercial power grid in order to perform extensive preventative maintenance on its core power infrastructure. During this time, all tenants within the building operate off their existing diesel generators/alternate power sources. This years maintenance has been moved up considerably in schedule (due to COVID related concerns), as some people will note the last "Diesel Day" was in October-2019.

While customers should see no direct impact to their core services as a result of this maintenance period, we are issuing this precautionary notice, as extensive work is being done to building infrastructure with relation to the electrical systems.

Cabinet colocation customers should be aware of the following:
- Priority Colo staff will be on-site during all power transfers to/from generator, and for the majority of the maintenance period, and will be happy to help with any concerns (as always).
- Full un-escorted access will be available as per normal; however customers can expect delays in signing in at the front desk, extensive waits for elevators (given COVID related capacity reductions), etc.
- Station Street will be partially closed between Simcoe St., and the loading dock from 13-Sep-2020 - 14-Sep-2020. The loading dock will not be available during this time.

Customers who have any questions, or concerns with regards to this maintenance should contact me directly (myles@prioritycolo.com) for additional details.
