The customer built a new Data Centre for South West Data Centre inside the existing Data Centre taking up a quarter of the space.
Customer: South West Data Centre
Need: An energy efficient Data Centre with the lowest possible PUE.
Solution: Partnering with South West Data Centre we have fitted our Ultra Energy Efficient DMF065D freecool units to give HLMR the best energy efficient product on the market.

Unit testing on 02.04.19 by DNB
Using 8 No Heatbanks a 90kW room design load was introduced.
Each of the 3 No DMF065D units run in freecooling mode with no DX.
The outside ambient was 9.8°C.
The input power to each unit was 2.5kW with a total of 7.5kW input for 3 units.
EER = 90 / 7.5 EER = 12.00
PUE = 90 + 7.5 + 3.6 (UPS losses at 4%) PUE = 1.12 Cooling PUE = 1.08
Existing D63 Combicool units running on CW as the primary.
Chiller COP estimated @ 3.0
D63 units running @ 6.0kW fan gain each.
Running 3 units at a 90kW load
Chiller load 30kW
3 x D63 fan gain 18kW
Total input power 48kW
EER = 90 / 48 EER = 1.875
PUE = 90 + 48 + 3.6 (UPS losses at 4%) PUE = 1.57 Cooling PUE 1.53
At this point in time the saving over the existing system for a 90kW load would be
48kW – 7.5kW = 40.5kW.
Annual saving = 40.5kW x 8760 hrs x £0.12kW/hr = £42,574.
ROI 1 Year 6 Months
Unit 3 was switched off.
The remaining 2 No DMF065D units then run in freecooling mode & partial DX mode.
The outside ambient was now 10.8°C.
The input power to each unit was 7.1kW with a total of 14.2kW input.
EER = 90 / 14.2 EER = 6.34
PUE = 90 + 14.2 + 3.6 (UPS losses at 4%) PUE = 1.20 Cooling PUE = 1.16
