Striving for a low PUE
During the planning of the new Data Centre, Peter Hartl got in contact with Munters in his search for an energy efficient cooling solution.
Striving for a PUE as low as possible, Munters’ indirect evaporative cooling system Oasis™ could form the perfect solution.
Compared to a traditional DX based cooling solutions for Data Centres, the Oasis™ solution typically saves up to 75% energy. Mainly due to the elimination of compressors and also thanks to the reduced need of fans involved.
Munters worked out a design with two Oasis™ 200 units that would be able to satisfy the requirement of strictly controlling the temperature within the Data Centre between 23-25°C around the year.
