Yorkshire Water required a flexible data centre facility with initial technical load of 150kW expandable to 350kW. A key element of the design was efficiency to meet both environmental and financial objectives.
The first phase consists of 6 EcoCooling CRECs each providing air up to 30kW of cooling. During cool conditions incoming air is warmed by mixing the hot exhaust air with the cold air from outside. In warm conditions full fresh air is used and in very hot conditions evaporative cooling is enabled. The maximum relative humidity is controlled using the unique EcoCooling dynamic RH control. The input air will not exceed 80% giving full compliance against ASHRAE allowable standards.
