Among technical upgrades to the cooling infrastructure of the data centre at Manchester Airport carried out by Sudlows is a new cooling system that will reduce CO2 emissions by 31 t a year.

Stuart Gaffney, project manager for Manchester Airport, said, ‘This new mechanical upgrade to two of our existing data centres will deliver a highly resilient and energy-efficient cooling infrastructure to our facilities. Furthermore, Sudlow’s expertise and knowledge will be a huge benefit to our ongoing work and expansion.’

Gary Frith, mechanical-services direct with Sudlows, commented, ‘Manchester Airport has chosen the ideal time to commission this upgrade to its cooling systems. This project is a great example of the direct benefits that any company can witness when considering replacing its legacy cooling systems with a more environmental and energy-efficient system.’
