Data centre chooses Munters indirect evaporative coolers
Equinix, a major operator of data centres and Internet exchanges, has chosen Munters Oasis indirect evaporative coolers for climate control for the new London LD6 data centre in Slough. The centre aims to achieve LEED Platinum accreditation (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design).
40 IEC 200 units will supply over 8 MW of cooling for the first phase of LD6.
The LD6 data centre will provide 8000 m2, equivalent to housing 2770 server cabinets.
With the help of the Oasis units, it will be one of the most energy-efficient data centres in the UK. It uses indirect evaporation and 100% natural ventilation.
