UPS room in the Shard needs cooling
An international broadcaster headquartered in the Middle East needed the intervention of Andrews Sykes before moving into new offices in London. The Shard – Europe’s tallest freestanding building – was their location of choice, but an overheating issue threatened to obstruct the moving in process.
The main UPS switch room – which provides the company with a back-up power supply – was getting too hot, and this problem had to be addressed before occupancy could begin. We provided the client with a PAC 60 portable air conditioner complete with heat exchanger and accessories, to reduce the internal temperature. By removing warm air from the vicinity, we prevented critical materials and equipment from being exposed to dangerous amounts of heat.
