New data centre of KBR
KBR’s planned to consolidate its four global data centres to two and to make an ultra-efficient data centre in the UK the primary facility alongside the second data centre located in the United States. Keysource was the principal contractor for the design and build of the data centre that would reduce the total cost of ownership continuously for its 10 year lifetime.
- Scalable approach – ability to support 300 kW up to a 550 kW IT load.
- Annual savings in power consumption of 4.1million kW-h and reduction in CO2 emissions of 2.2million kg
- Complete air containment and separation of the cold and hot aisles.
- ecofris design – maximum use of ‘free cooling’ – two 300 kW cooling modules sited externally, using ambient air to cool the water circuit.
