The Solution

The new internal ECV CloudCooler® was chosen due to its simple design and efficiency. The modular, plug and play units have low capital and maintenance costs while the use of direct, fresh air results in a significantly smaller carbon footprint than refrigeration-based alternatives.  

Compared to a traditional refrigeration system the estimated energy savings of any EcoCooling fresh air system are expected to be around 90%.

The units provide a constant supply of filtered air at controlled temperatures. Filtration, plus the avoidance of temperature fluctuations maximise the reliability of the cryptocurrency miners and other IT equipment. Optimising air quality and temperature stability provides a perfect platform for maintaining the maximum availability of mining power.

Netcetera Managing Director, Peter Skelton, stated that he was thrilled to use EcoCooling products to cool their facility.

EcoCooling managing director, Alan Beresford was excited to be working with them.

The Result

With over 15 years of experience, EcoCooling is constantly improving their products to provide the best quality cooling systems for all types of installations

The new CloudCooler® range is specifically designed for data centre, IT, GPU and cryptocurrency mining facilities. Utilising free cooling with optional evaporative cooling, the units can be configured to suit many applications. With a significant reduction in operational cooling cost and carbon footprint, the CloudCooler is the go-to option for data centre operator looking to reduce their energy use and cooling costs.

“To date we have saved a whopping two and a half million kilograms of carbon, the CREC® cooling system has significantly contributed to these and ongoing savings.”
