European Data Center Uses Sea Water for Cooling, CPI for Storage

April 19, 2012

Take this next story with a grain of salt – it is after all the perfect way to describe the contents of the sea water used by a new data center in Helsinki, Finland for its geographically opportunistic method of thermal management.

Owned and operated by an international IT services company, the data center is located in the waterfront Suvilahti district of Helsinki, where it uses water from the nearby Baltic Sea to help cool equipment inside.

According to Janne Puranen, Project Sales Manager at Coromatic (who delivered much of the installation’s IT infrastructure), "this data center uses a new type of hot-aisle technique, which combines a very high energy efficiency and usability. The extra heat created by its servers will be transferred to the district heating network to provide heat and warm water for 4500 new apartments in the city.”

Helsinki Data Center, feat. CPI Adjustable QuadraRack and GVCSWe’re proud to report that the data center (pictured at right) is supported by a series of CPI’s Adjustable QuadraRack™ with Evolution™ Cable Management, marking one of our first infrastructure projects in the Finnish market. This news comes not long after another Nordics-based and CPI-featuring project, that of the Baltic Data Center in Lithuania, which you can read more about here.

Of course, you can always access a variety of helpful information on all of CPI’s Rack Systems, including two- and four-post, and those created specifically for seismically-active regions. Jeff Cihocki, Global eContent Specialist
