ST Engineering launches breakthrough cooling solution to enable greener data centres

DataData CentresGreen TechnologyPower & CoolingTelecomTop Stories

ST Engineering has announced the launch of its new Airbitat DC Cooling System, marking its entry into the data centre cooling market. An innovation by its Urban Environment Solutions (UES) business, the Airbitat DC Cooling System delivers powerful pre-cooling for tropical data centres, achieving annual net energy savings of more than 20% over conventional chiller systems alone. This translates to annual energy savings of about US$104 per KW of heat load.

Combined with existing chiller systems, the Airbitat DC Cooling System enables data centres to reach a targeted Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of below 1.3, which is supported by UES’ live system data and backed by eight years of engineering, R&D and its patented evaporative cooling technology. This performance represents a significant improvement over current regulatory requirements for data centres in Singapore and positions it to meet more stringent standards for future data centre builds.

“Through re-engineering our established Airbitat solution for the data centre environment, we have successfully developed a sustainable solution that significantly cuts energy consumption while reducing carbon intensity and Urban Heat Island Effect,” said Gareth Tang, Head of Urban Environment Solutions at ST Engineering. “Its ability to be readily deployed in existing data centres presents an attractive option for operators who are looking for cost-effective solutions to lower energy consumption and achieve their sustainability targets.”
