Data Centre Design and Construction
Ultra low PUE, High rack energy, Fire proof -
For years, GDCS has been building and designing data centres. Over this period our customers’ ICT housing requirements and priorities have evolved and changed. Early customer requirements for security, connectivity and resilience are now taken as data centre service givens. Today’s data centre customer additionally require:
The GDCS A2A modular solution delivers all of these contemporary needs plus more:

To satisfy these contemporary customer requirements, GDCS has worked with Partner organisations – Munters and Digiplex – to create an innovative modular data centre cooling module fit for the 21st century.
The A2A ATP essentially consists of two back to back coupled air handling units (AHUs). One side of the coupled AHUs draws in outdoor air into the ATP, passing it over a specially designed heat exchanger. This heat exchanger is wetted with a water irrigation system, thereby introducing powerful adiabatic evaporative cooling effects. After passing through the heat exchanger, the outdoor air is re-
All of the cooling equipment is factory installed in the pre-
The GDCS A2A ATP replaces the need for data centre internal CCU/ CRACUs and any external chillers or ADCs and associated pumps and water pipework circuits that accompany more conventional water cooled systems.
The GDCS A2A ATP utilises a derivative of the Munters ‘Oasis evaporative cooling system’ which is currently deployed on a large scale in the USA and Australia.
The entire white space volume of the GDCS A2A data centre modules is sealed and positively pressurised. The contained internal atmosphere is de-
The GDCS A2A modular data centre delivers the data centre requirements of today and tomorrow.
At the heart of the GDCS A2A modular data centre is a closed circuit ‘Air treatment pod’ (ATP). The ATP unit capitalises on the cool, wet atmospheric conditions of Northern Europe and Scandinavia to deliver several layers of ‘free cooling’. By this means the ATP delivers important sustainability and economic benefits over traditional cooling technologies.
