The brief

In 2013 Zajil International Telecoms were designing their new colocation data centre and required a low energy cooling solution which would be able to expand alongside their
growing requirements.
They required a phased deployment of cabinets and cooling to keep their capital costs down. The data centre would eventually comprise 80 racks with up to 160kW cooling capacity., With an initial 20 racks and 8 rear ColdLogik rear coolers with cooling to be added as load increased.

The Solution

The specification required that the cooling solution would work efficiently on part load. The ColdLogik team designed a modular system which allows for a gradual roll out program. The initial solution required 20 x USpace ColdLogik compliant cabinets with an initial 8 x ColdLogik CL20 C8 rear coolers.
This was supported by three chillers with a water supply temperature of 16°C.
This modular approach allows for a growing installation requirement which has been expanded twice since in 18 months since the initial installation as their customer base increased.
