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.
The heat that’s generated, how it’s dispersed, the way air flows around the equipment in a data centre, and even the outside temperature all need to be considered when creating the perfect environment in the most cost-effective way.
FEL engineers factor all of them into the way your data centre is designed and maintained, which means we are able to make space for expansion in the future without the need for further data centres, thus optimising the footprint of your existing facilities.
One of our key optimisations allows for dynamic cooling control that provides significant energy saving benefits of up to 75% within data centres and technical spaces. By processing rack temperature data across the full technical space, the control philosophy is designed to match IT load with a balanced amount of cooling and airflow.
The control works to utilise as much external ‘free’ air as possible, holding off any traditional direct expansion (DX) and chilled water units where possible. This provides the most optimal set up for energy optimisation whilst maintaining ASHRAE TC9.9 thermal compliance within the space.
FEL Group can help with the optimisation of your space to ensure efficient cooling of your equipment. With the aid of our in-house monitoring equipment we are able to advise on the optimum location of your data services to maximise the power available. As your data centre grows we can advise on the best place to gain the peak performance out of your cooling equipment.
We have a dedicated team that will assist you with your room design and to reduce your daily running costs and to lower your overall PUE.
