With our knowledge of critical power, cooling solutions, infrastructure and power monitoring and our technical understanding of building standards for the data centre industry, we are best placed to deliver on refurbishment or new build projects, providing true turnkey options; on walls, floors, ceilings, sub-structure and super-structure. We use our expertise to provide the correct solutions with the optimum return on investment in mind at all times.
We have over 20 years of operation, gained a healthy respect from our peers, customers and suppliers of delivering engineering services to a broad spectrum of industries, institutions and authorities, including environmental engineering, offsite manufacture, rail, IT and facilities services.
Our focus is led by the drive to keep costs down and quality up, which are key requirements to our customers and why they engage with us early in the project concept allowing our design and technical employees to use innovative techniques that normal procurement routes exclude.
We understand that IT infrastructure is critical to every business, especially when it is your business and therefore design and build systems, that have dual redundancies, as well as investing heavily in temporary and mobile equipment.
Finally, we believe that to continue to grow the relationship with our customers, it should always be with integrity, being part of their team, and at the heart of their business.
Despite being in place for almost 4 years now, many businesses are still unaware of the legislation on F-Gas regulations and the impact on your business for non-compliance. The updated rules place a high importance on minimising leaks and encouraging regular leak checks depending on the refrigerant charge, with greater emphasis on leak checking of systems with higher global warming potential (GWP).
GWP is a measure of how much a given mass of a gas contributes to global warming. It is a relative scale which compares the amount of heat trapped by greenhouse gases to the amount of heat trapped in the same mass of carbon dioxide. Therefore, the GWP of CO2 is by definition 1, and the higher the GWP of the refrigerant, the worse it is for the environment.
Previous regulations state that a system with 3kg of refrigerant would need leak testing once a year, compared with twice a year for a system with 30kg of refrigerant and every three months for a system with 300kg of refrigerant. However, the revised regulations for leak test requirements are now based on CO2 equivalent tonnes.
This means that a system with the equivalent of 5 tonnes of CO2 would need leak testing once a year, compared with twice a year for an equivalent of 50 tonnes of CO2 and quarterly for 500 tonnes of CO2 equivalent.
We can help you to calculate the CO2 equivalent of your current air con system and understand the leak testing requirements for your business. Contact us to request help
