Aqua wins “2019 Data Centre Solutions Award”

05 November 2019

Aqua Group has been recognized at the 2019 Data Centre Solutions Awards for its commitment to energy-efficient data centre design.

The DCS Awards, now in their 9th year, recognize providers, product designers, suppliers and manufacturers working within the data centre arena.

Aqua won the “Data Centre Energy Efficiency Project of the Year” category, for a project undertaken for their client 4D. 4D is a UK based colocation provider, providing ultra-fast connectivity and business-focused cloud services around the world. When 4D took on a legacy data centre facility at Gatwick, Aqua was selected to upgrade the existing chiller-based cooling system.

The project had energy efficiency at its heart, and Aqua improved the energy saving of the cooling system by 90%, deploying a bespoke cooling solution based on a “chiller-less” design. Cooling tower technology was used alongside pumps, heat exchangers, dosing equipment, filtration, inverters, and remote monitoring.
