Green Data Centres

There is independence from local water systems and delivers a redundant make-up water supply. The chiller plant has been optimized with heat exchangers to enable the isolation of the chillers in cooler months. This provides the ability to reject the heat load on the chilled water loop through our heat exchangers tied to our condenser side water loop, all utilizing the outdoor air temperature and maintaining our green initiative. Moreover, a white-membrane roof reflects heat away from the facility to also lessen energy consumption for facility cooling.
