Data centres consume huge amounts of electricity and use technologies that are harmful to the environment. We decided to build a data centre that would be friendly to nature without making any compromises on quality and reliability. How did we achieve this?
Rotary UPS use the kinetic energy accumulated in the rotating flywheel (moment of inertia). In the event of a grid failure, the energy of the overrun flywheel is used for DC power until the start of the backup generators.
Why is rotary UPS green?
By using rotary UPS, we avoid creating chemical waste in the form of used batteries, which are difficult to degrade.
Why is water mist extinguishing green?
An extinguishing system on the principle of water mist is environmentally friendly, unlike the inert gas that is traditionally used in data centres.
We use residual heat generated by the data centre equipment.
Servers and other telecommunications equipment generate a lot of heat that must be removed from data rooms. It can be drained off or utilised further. We make full use of residual heat to heat office space and the greenhouses of the Kulla garden centre. We are delighted that live Digitalis flowers also flourish thanks to this heat.
Recycling of waste
There are recycling bins throughout the data centre, allowing us to separate waste and contribute to nature conservation.
