Capacity guarantee

Improving point 5:

Prevent capacity issues during extremely high ambient temperatures by using Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage

In recent years extremely high temperatures (> 30⁰C) seem to be becoming more common. Under such warm weather conditions the cooling capacity of the external coolers decreases noticeably. This causes inadmissibly high air supply temperatures in the computer rooms. By using ATES, cold groundwater of approx. 13°C will be available even at extremely high outdoor temperatures, guaranteeing sufficient coolant to prevent cooling capacity issues. Using ATES substantially improves the reliability and the Up Time of a data centre.
