Net-Build® GmbH in Saarwellingen, Germany, was founded in 1999 by Mr. Patrick Bohn. Providing IT services as System Management, Business Solutions and Rack Hosting, the company today has 20 employees.The increasing data traffic and demand for storing and protection of data in general, recently created a need for extending Net-Builds Data Centre capacity.
Managing a visionary and environmentally conscious company, Mr. Patrick Bohn was looking out for new and energy efficient solutions when he decided to build a new state-of-the-art Data Centre. In the planning phase, Net-Build partnered with the local contractor E-TEC Power Management GmbH, that supplies turnkey Data Centre solutions with the highest attention on safety and energy efficiency.
Together with Munters, E-TEC worked out an energy efficient cooling solution, based on Munters’ indirect evaporative cooling system Oasis™.
Energy efficiency of utmost importance
Net-Build can host up to 12.000 servers in 320 racks, placed in 2 identical, (but of safety reasons separated) and mirrorhanded rooms.
To prevent drop outs in case of failure in the mains supply, the Data Centre is equipped with double emergency power systems, ensuring that a break down is only a theoretical issue.
To cope with the heat load generated by the servers, installation of efficient cooling was crucial. With an IT load in the Data Centre of up to 2 MW when fully loaded, E-TEC and Munters specified 8 pcs Oasis™ 200 units for the facility. The units were designed to be installed on the roof, directly above the hot aisles, whereby expensive duct work and loss of static pressure could be avoided.
