Background and challenges
Mapfre has not stopped growing in recent years, so it has had to build new infrastructure for data centers that support all their business. After the good results obtained by GESAB in the design and construction of differents data centers, Mapfre contacted our data center engineering and infrastructure team to deal with a new project which required totally hermetic enclosures for hot aisles.
GESAB fully designed and manufactured as all enclosures with the technical characteristics established by Mapfre, proving to be the most advantageous technical solution while optimizing energy efficiency.
The self-supporting front were initially installed and then all racks of different sizes, in both high and wide, using adjustable panels manufactured by GESAB with neoprene seals , holing the hot air toward the ceiling plenum, which is aimed at the air conditioning machines.
Benefits and advantages
Solution completely made for Mapfre, tailored to meet their needs and installed on schedule. We got an increase of direct savings by improving the system that had previously been used by not allowing mixing the cold and hot air, achieving significant energy savings.
