Over the past six years Workspace Technology has estimated that the combined deployments of Freecool®, the UK’s leading direct fresh air cooling solution by Workspace Technology, has helped public sector organisations to reduce power consumption by over 1.5 Megawatt. This power saving equates to over 13,140MW/hours per annum in turn reducing energy bills by an estimated £1.3m per annum.
Freecool® Evaporative Free Air Cooling by Workspace Technology delivers innovative low energy cooling for data centre environments typically delivering PUE figures of < 1.15. Freecool® offers clients a choice of direct and indirect airflow configurations. The optional ‘Cool Wall’ module supports mechanical backup or top up cooling for all modes of system operation.
Education sector clients who have benefited from Freecool® include; Aston University, Harper Adams University, University of Warwick, University of Aberdeen, Robert Gordon University and Nottingham Trent University to name but a few, all Universities have of course benefited from significant energy reductions.
Freecool® is an ideal technology fit for Salix or equivalent energy funding because the payback is typically between 2 to 3 years and rarely exceeds five years allowing the a comfortable repayment of the energy fund.
Nick Roberts, Workspace Technology’s Education Business Development Manager, commented “Following the installation of Freecool® technology many of our clients are simply astonished at the energy reduction levels that have been achieved. This is especially true for those clients where Freecool is replacing aging DX based systems and associated mechanical cooling power is typically reduced by 90% or more following a Freecool® installation. As an example if the DX units are using 50kW of power this equates to an immediate saving of over 45kW in turn reducing energy bills by over £40,000 per year.”
