EcoCooling, a leader in ultra-low PUE direct evaporative cooling and ventilation systems have recently started the second phase in a large colocation facility cooling project with Hydro66 through the The Node Pole Alliance.
The Node Pole region encompasses three municipalities in the very north of Sweden, just by the Arctic Circle, and has the potential to become a global hub for data traffic. This is mostly due to its reliable power infrastructure, the ample supply of low cost renewable hydroelectric energy and low air temperatures ideal for natural cooling.
The Alliance members are companies from the technology and construction sectors who combine their knowledge and experience to build world-class data centres.
The choice for the project was the new Nordic grade ECT10800 internal CREC (computer room evaporative cooling) unit, EcoCooling’s energy efficient alternative to the CRAC for clients wanting the look and feel of a CRAC unit but the efficiency and cost savings of direct evaporative cooling.
