Musgraves Operating Partners Ireland
We installed three roof mounted evaporative coolers five years ago to cool and ventilate our Support Office in Lucan. The system provides 100% fresh air at variable speeds into the office areas and also provides cooling during the summer period.
The result has been a consistent and comfortable working environment for our employees. Evaporative Cooling was chosen over conventional air conditioning because of the lower capital and running costs, which are one sixth that of standard air conditioning.
Two years ago we needed to improve the cooling in our data centre. We choose a CREC (Computer Room Evaporative Cooling) system provided by JL Intelligent Cooling Solutions. We removed six legacy duty/standby air conditioning systems with a duty of 70KW cooling.
They were installed at various times, and I replaced them with one roof mounted Evaporative Cooling System. Temperatures within the Data Centre were maintained at the required level and at a running cost one tenth of the air conditioning removed. We had a return on investment in eighteen months as a result of energy savings.
I would recommend evaporative cooling as a sustainable solution to cooling requirements in office and computer room environments.
