Keysource have been shortlisted for the Installation of the year – Industrial and commercial category of the RAC Cooling Industry Awards 2009.
Keysource’s entry detailed its creation of one of the most energy efficient data centres in Europe as a result of a complete rethink of the concept of data centre cooling.
The project entered into the awards represents a very attractive easy win for many organisations when it comes to linking operational cost savings, energy reduction and huge reductions in carbon footprint. The project was a pioneering installation and no-one has tried this approach before in the data centre and many did not believe it could work. It demonstrates that ‘green procurement’ can work and it shows that environmental aims need not be in any way incompatible with business objectives.

‘There’s no rocket science in cooling data centres, but very efficient ones are still a rarity. So when a record-breaking centre set up in Surrey, we (E Week) were very keen to speak to the man behind it’.
Mike West, Managing Director of Keysource says: “It is not rocket science, I’d like to say there’s a lot of intellectual property around in this field, but we’re just applying well understood engineering practice, and getting design people to work together to optimise the data centre for efficiency.”
