Discussing energy-efficient and sustainable cooling solutions for data centers in tropical regions

Georg Fischer Piping Systems Stand: P35
Discussing energy-efficient and sustainable cooling solutions for data centers in tropical regions
f.l.t.r. Ian Waldock, Director Data Centers (Asia Pacific); Adi Wirawan, Managing Director Southeast Asia; Joost Geginat, President of GF Piping Systems; Prof. Lee Poh Seng from NUS Department of Mechanical Engineering; Thomas Hary, CFO; Alexandre Geiger, Head of ASEAN; Michael Toh, Head of Asia.

GF Piping Systems’ president Joost Geginat and Assoc. Prof. PS Lee, Programme Director of Sustainable Tropical Data Centre Testbed (STDCT), toured the new testbed under construction and discussed their shared passion for energy efficiencies and commitment towards finding sustainable solutions for liquid cooling in tropical environments.

Digitization has led to a growing global demand for data centers. The housed computer servers generate a lot of heat. Hence, data centers are currently air-cooled at temperatures between 23 and 27 degrees Celsius, and at ambient humidity of 50 to 60 per cent. Maintaining such controlled environments requires high energy consumption, particularly in tropical countries, resulting in high cost and carbon emissions.

The National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore), together with key stakeholders in Singapore’s data center industry, are establishing a new state-of the-art testbed facility to develop innovative and sustainable cooling solutions for data centers located in tropical locations.

The new STDCT – the first of its kind in the tropics – will serve as a data center simulation for academia and industry to work together to future-proof the region’s data center industry to test efficient suitable cooling methods. GF Piping Systems' COOL-FIT will be used for chilled water pipework and ecoFIT for condenser water pipework.

Programme Director Associate Professor Lee Poh Seng, who is from the Department of Mechanical Engineering under the NUS College of Design and Engineering, toured the testbed together with Joost Geginat, President of GF Piping Systems and the company’s CFO Thomas Hary.

"We are very proud to be a partner in this project geared to reduce energy consumption and CO2 footprint of all digital solutions. Additionally, our knowledge exchange with STDCT and the results of this testbed serves as inspiration for the next generation of innovative GF products supporting a more sustainable future" says Joost Geginat.
