Live Data Centre Retrofit

EMC2 Cuts Energy Use by 20% – Engineered by Arup

EMC2, one of the world’s top hi-tech companies, will achieve annual energy consumption savings of 20 per cent at its facility in Cork, through ground-breaking use of energy saving technologies. 

Arup consultants present design and technologies installed in four areas: Ambient laboratories, Thermocycling laboratories, International Data Centre and CB2 Data Centres. 

Interfacing with the client’s team to understand the manufacturing process and data centre requirements at concept engineering stage is critical to ensuring the successful delivery of a retrofit free cooling project. 

It is one of  the most radical incorporations of energy saving technologies at a hi-tech facility in Ireland and demonstrates the possibilities for retrofitting major industrial projects whilst these remain “live” – Sean Twohig, project manager, Arup
