Data Centres


Liquid immersion cooling for resilient data centres with high density and low latency

Battery Energy Storage Systems

By 2025 it is estimated that global data creation is going to grow to more than 180 zettabytes. This soaring data usage is due to the popularity of streaming services as well as virtual meeting tools and remote working. Consequently, data centres play an extremely important part in our society. Housing critical assets to an organisation that process and disseminate data, they are vital to maintaining day-to-day operations. With the world becoming more and more digital, the reliability of a data centre is the most critical factor when it comes to designing a facility.

Skyrocketing data demands has huge implications on global warming. It is estimated that worldwide, data centres consume about 3% of the global electric supply and account for about 2% of total greenhouse gas emissions. With the emergence of hyperscale data centres and edge computing, these figures are likely to dramatically increase.

The majority of electricity consumed is used to power cooling systems, which are predominately air-conditioning based and necessary to manage the heat from servers that are processing data 24/7. Liquid immersion cooling removes the need for power-intensive air conditioning equipment. Submerging servers into a dielectric liquid reduces the environmental and financial costs associated with air cooling, yet improves performance and resilience. Once immersed, equipment is fully protected from contamination, vibration and noise. This can dramatically improve a data centre’s PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness).
