Construction Industry has resumed work even before Lockdown Level 2 (or Level 1) has been declared?

Does the 30MW/60MW refer to power consumption? Sounds odd if it does, because I assume that networking and data equipment improves continuously. Or do they simply keep increasing processing capacity at the same power use?

Usually each cabinet is provisioned with 1KW, however this can increase depending on the number of servers in a cabinet. The client pays per extra KW per month. Usually there are also two municipal power feeds from separate transformers and separate cable routes.

So that 30MW is not the power consumption figures, but they have the ability to draw that amount of power in the future if needs be.
