Uncovering the Benefits of Modular Chiller Plants


Modular chiller plants can provide some surprisingly significant benefits to a data center’s operation. Similar to “stick built” plants, modular designed chiller plants can be specified by the MEP design engineers and the data center owner/operator with similar equipment. As a result of this flexibility, data center owners can make strategic equipment choices. This allows operators to ensure their plants are constructed with the highest quality equipment, reduce trades on site, decrease expenses, shorten installation times, extend “free cooling” hours and increase energy efficiency.
