Hewlett-Packard’s new Streetsville data center in Mississauga, Canada is a first for the company. It is HP’s first data center to use KyotoCooling and the associated KyotoWheel heat exchanger for its primary cooling. The cutting-edge technology reduces the need for mechanical cooling by transferring heat to the outside air stream through an energy recovery wheel heat exchanger.
Ecological Economic Benefits
- 10-year lifecycle kWh saved: 294 million kWh
- 10-year lifecycle operational savings: $32 million
- 10-year lifecycle water conserved: 95 million gallons
- 10-year lifecycle CO2 reduction: 177,481 tons Equivalent to fewer 33,487 cars
HP has made it a priority to reduce the energy used by its network of data centers. With more than 100 client-serving data centers worldwide and six internal data centers in the United States, the KyotoWheel is helping HP achieve that goal. There is growing customer demand for data services managed by HP’s trade data centers. As a result, building, retrofitting and operating highly energy-efficient data centers and consolidating existing facilities is very important — typical data centers consume 20 to 40 times more energy per square foot than commercial offices.
96% Free Cooling — 1.09 Annual Mechanical PUE
The facility is the largest trade data center implementation of KyotoCooling in North America and incorporates full KyotoControls integration into its data center management center. In addition, the KyotoCooling units support full 30KVA/cabinet load density.
