From design to deployment
The renovation of the cooling system involves placing a new central ring unit, to which all the server room cooling units are connected and, of course, connected to the chillers. This central ring unit had to be realized in the ‘inner roof’. As of May 2019, EQUANS took on the entire project: design and manufacturing of prefab parts; delivery and installation of the ring, the connectors and new distribution pumps; placing and connecting the cooling units on the new ring; and commissioning the new control system. Finally, in phase 2, 80 cooling units in the server rooms were replaced one by one and connected to the ring. All civil works were also part of the scope.
In November 2020, the improved, more sustainable, cooling system was complete and handed over to the client.
