The new data centre will meet the demand from Equinix’s customers in financial services, cloud and enterprise segments and aims to achieve platinum level accreditation in Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED).
Forty Munters Oasis IEC 200’s will supply over 8MW of cooling for the IT Load for the first phase of LD6. The new LD6 data centre will provide a capacity of 8,000 square metres equivalent to housing 2,770 server cabinets. With the help of the Munters Oasis units, LD6 will become amongst the most energy efficient data centres in UK. Equinix‘s investment in LD6 data centre utilises Oasis's award winning innovative patented indirect evaporative heat exchanger and 100% natural ventilation.
“LD6 is a hugely exciting project; the facility will be the most advanced data centre in the UK. We are committed to providing continuous improvement for our customers and set new standards in efficiency and sustainability,” said Russell Poole, Managing Director of Equinix UK.
