Can You Say Data Centers are Going 99% Energy Efficiency?!
LONDON, May 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, partners with EcoDataCenter to build an ultra-low-carbon footprint data center at the heart of their HPC colocation in Falun, Sweden. The goal is to be one of the most sustainable data centers in the Nordics. Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure™ Building Operation, Galaxy VX UPS with lithium-Ion, and MasterPact™ MTZ are just some of the solutions ensuring the colocation facility stays on a mission for climate positivity. Additionally, Schneider’s Connected Services Hub provides remote monitoring and 24/7 access to EcoDataCenter’s critical facility.
In need of reliable power management that would ensure customer-server uptime and energy efficiency, EcoDataCenter partnered with Schneider Electric. “With the solutions coming from Schneider Electric, we expect to achieve a PUE of 1.15, and combining that with renewable power, we will make sure that we are one of the most sustainable data centers in the Nordics and hopefully in the world,” says Mikael Svanfeldt, Chief Technology Officer for EcoDataCenter.
Sustainable digitization with EcoStruxure™ solutions
Schneider Electric integrated EcoStruxure for Cloud & Service Providers into EcoDataCenter’s new build. With EcoStruxure as an open architecture, EcoDataCenter was able to seamlessly connect existing hardware, software, and monitoring through the platform’s analytics and services. Furthermore, EcoDataCenter now has connected sensor and meter data generating analytic reports on the data center’s operational efficiency — and its sustainability index.
In addition, Connected Services Hub now remotely monitors critical sensors and also gives EcoDataCenter 24/7 expert remote monitoring and troubleshooting by Schneider Electric’s team of service engineers.
When building a data centre, EcoDataCenter considers the well-being of the community. EcoStruxure provides monitoring, efficiency, and connectivity to EcoDataCenter. therefore, they are able to recycle the facility’s heat waste to local utilities. Accordingly, EcoDataCenter uses that efficiency to give back to the local grid, allowing them to go beyond net-zero emissions and achieve climate positivity.
Two Uniflair™ Turbocor Chillers add to facility climate control, supplementing the usually low Nordic temperatures, especially during summer’s humidity. Within EcoStruxure’s architecture, four Galaxy VX UPSs support 1,250 kW of customer load in its 99% efficiency ECOnversion Mode. This backup power frees up energy that can be diverted to clients.
“Working together, EcoDataCenter and Schneider have proved it is entirely practical for a well-architected data center to be both efficient and resilient whilst meeting sustainability goals. In this case, benefiting the environment as well as the local community,” said Christina Backlund, VP Secure Power, Nordic and Baltics at Schneider Electric.
