Case Studies

Energy and Risk Reduction Programme. Case study 1


Result

 


Brief

Two award winning Tier III facilities wanted to make further improvements to their energy performance.

Recommended changes

AIR MANAGEMENT:

  • Seal air gaps to reduce bypass (data halls), reduce flow rate (LV switchrooms), relocate poorly placed grilles (MDF), redirect air to IT intake (MDF)

    ENERGY:
  • Run all AHUs at a lower fan speed (data halls)
  • Reduce pressure set points (data halls)
  • Replace pressure sensors with ones with a tighter range (data halls)
  • Reduce flow rates in LV switchrooms
  • Allow higher temperature in LV switchrooms (no batteries)
  • Reduce pressure set points (MDF)

RISK:

  • Review and improve standard and emergency procedures
