Free Cooling Technology from CES Group Company Helps Verne Global Continue to Improve Energy Cost Savings at Acclaimed Iceland Data Center

Fort Mill Times, July 7, 2014

The world’s first 100% renewably powered data center has another claim to fame now – it has actually performed more efficiently than initial expectations, thanks to the capacity and cost savings resulting from the innovative free cooling system based on technology from Eaton-Williams, an affiliate of CES Group, LLC.

The Verne Global data center, located in Keflavik, Iceland, has a free cooling system that takes advantage of the moderate Icelandic climate and taps into the island’s vast geothermal and hydroelectric resources to help enable the world’s first zero-carbon data center facility. Working in partnership with Colt Data Center Services the Eaton-Williams team customized a modular data center hall design with free cooling. This free cooling system brings in cool outdoor air and circulates only that natural air in the server rooms of the data center, eliminating the need for mechanical cooling and the energy costs associated with it.
