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

The Hampshire-based temperature control company won the Data Centre Energy Efficiency Project of the Year category for a project undertaken for client 4D, who selected Aqua to upgrade the existing chiller-based cooling system for a legacy data centre facility at Gatwick Airport.
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.

Mike West, data centre projects manager for Aqua Group, said: “We were absolutely delighted to win a DCS Award.  Being a finalist was an achievement but to win really was the icing on the cake. It’s great recognition for everyone involved in the project and showcases our commitment to improving our environment by reducing energy consumption and substantially reducing CO2 emissions which impact global warming. Not only with large scale projects like this one, but every time we install energy efficient chillers, free coolers, pump inverters, and so on, we’re doing something positive and so important for our future.”
