Andrews help eliminate the risk of a server breakdown

When a multinational telecommunications services company required extra cooling for one of the biggest data centres in the UK, Andrews Chiller Hire was on hand to help.

Our customer was undergoing major maintenance to their existing air conditioning system, but in doing so were required to take the existing units offline – leaving the data centre with inadequate climate control. At this juncture, our chiller specialists were drafted in to provide the client with an effective cooling solution.

Following an extensive site survey, two 100kW chillers were delivered and installed on site along with a 150kW air handler from which cold air was ducted via a vent and positioned under the floor, providing cool air to the critically hot areas.
