Extreme High Ambient Thermal Containment Design and Installation

A prominent provider of sustainable data centre solutions sought to optimise their cooling system and tackle challenges arising from extreme high ambient conditions in the UK at their London data centre.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

A prominent provider of sustainable data centre solutions sought to optimise their cooling system and tackle challenges arising from extreme high ambient conditions in the UK at their London data centre.

In order to achieve maximum efficiency and mitigate the impacts of rising temperatures, the client enlisted Keysource for their specialised service in Extreme High Ambient Thermal Containment Design and Installation.

The project aimed to boost the performance of the cooling solution, targeting an annualized PUE of <1.2, and to establish a robust infrastructure capable of handling temperatures exceeding 40°C in the central London area.

CHALLENGES

The challenge was to optimise the cooling system required a thorough design and installation strategy to enhance efficiency, minimise energy consumption and ensure a stable operating environment for critical IT infrastructure.

The central location and rooftop positioning added complexity, as it was vulnerable to wind recirculation that could impact the flow of rejected heat.

SERVICES DELIVERED & TYPE OF WORK

Keysource devised and executed a containment design system utilising an external CFD, enclosing the chiller units to prevent hot air recirculation.

The system addressed structural design modifications to ensure delivery on time that met requirements of structural engineers.

BENEFITS

The containment design system reduced temperatures by 7°C

The system improved their ability to operate in extreme weather conditions.

The system created the added benefit of shade for chiller coils and improved overall efficiency.

They now plan to replicate the solution at other data centre sites.

We’re extremely pleased with the outcome of this project. The Keysource team demonstrated exceptional expertise and dedication in delivering a solution that met our specific requirements. The team worked tirelessly to complete the project on schedule. The analysis helped us to validate the design and identify opportunities for improvement and the project has helped to secure a longer-term relationship between us and Keysource.
