    Presentation Summary

    Data centres are increasingly commonplace in the Irish industrial landscape and service sector. This presentation will outline different HVAC design options for data centres, including: Hyperscale, Multi-tenant Colocation, Colocation Wholesale, Private and Edge Data Centres. In addition, detailed design issues will be examined to include: airflow quantity, air velocities, air flow patterns, supply and extract air methods and CFD simulation. Emphasis will be placed on the use of best design practices that lead to reliable, energy efficient and low environmental impact systems. The role of standards on design practices will be examined and the impact of current white papers will be discussed.
