It has been a while again that we reduced the amount of electrical energy with 86% consumed by the cooling installations and you might be asking: why am I writing an article after all those years.
Between 2009 and 2012 we replaced our cooling installation and achieved an energy saving of 86% and in 2013 when we became a finalist at the Uptime Institute GEIT Awards.
Our cooling installation is still unique for two reasons: the cooling method ( cooling towers and Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage ) and because it is a retrofit. It’s much easier to build a new data center then optimize an older data center. We were convinced that things would change in the data center industry but it didn’t: not enough innovation, the industry is still doing a “copy paste” so I want to share our project and the optimizing afterwards.
