Evaporative Cooling Data Centre Case Studies
Warwickshire County Council - 4th Project
Centenary House - Nuneaton
Warwickshire Council have just completed their 4th data centre using the EcoCooling CREC
The data centre uses 4 CRECs to provide 90kW of cooling providing N+1 redundancy.
Hot and cold aisle containment is used with a raised access floor to enable 9m3 of air per second to be fed into the cold aisle.
Low Energy Electrically Commutate fans are used to provide extract. There is no refrigeration back up to the system
An EcoCooling control system provides a cascade of operations dependent upon the outside temperature. A PLC is used to control all parameters - including group control of CRECs, fan speed, damper positions and links to fire systems
The system also monitors performance and is fully compliant with ASHRAE guidelines on temperature.
An Ethernet protocol TCP Modbus facility integrates with a Trend BMS system providing data and fault reporting.
The Design is capable of achieving a PUE of 1.1
