Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Energy-saving cooling for hospital server rooms
STULZ UK ensuring zero downtime for critical IT applications with the STULZ MiniSpace EC
The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has a turnover of around £222 million and employs over 3,300 staff. The Trust delivers high-quality healthcare to the residents of the London Borough of Hillingdon and surrounding areas, with a total catchment population of over 350,000.
STULZ UK previously supplied cooling units for Hillingdon’s IT server room in 2007. At the end of 2017, the units were coming to the end of their life cycle and needed upgrading. Having provided a decade of reliable service, STULZ was the obvious choice to provide the upgrade and were invited to look at how energy efficiency could be further improved, with the latest cutting-edge technology.
Key benefits - Upgrading to a Minispace EC
EC Technology ensures enhanced air management
High motor efficiency of up to 92%, offering savings in running costs
Higher capacities coupled with pro rata energy savings of over 10%
Precision cooling, with zero downtime
Compact design allowing capacity expansion in same footprint
Capacities have been increased for the Trust and efficiency gains will be achieved on a pro rata basis – energy savings of over 10% should be possible. Since installation, the units have been providing reliable operation, under continuous load, and the project has successfully met Hillingdon’s stringent demands for high efficiency and reliability.
