Risk of runaway installation costs
A set-up with water-cooled machinery and free cooling from external systems was planned to achieve these values. Because the data centre was supposed to be fitted out with compact air-cooled chillers, there was a risk that the actual investment costs for the new system would be substantially higher than estimated. The client needed a highly-efficient installation that would meet the requirements without investment costs running away.
Rigorous efficiency requirements
The engineers at Swegon-owned BlueBox in Veneto, Italy suggested that the client invest in equipment built around its KAPPA REV unit, with free cooling and ultra-quiet performance (*LGW FC + SLN). Kappa REV is an energy-efficient unit with screw compressors, tube heat exchangers and HFO refrigerant.
