BLACKIRON Data, a subsidiary of PTGi (Primus Telecommunications Group, Inc.), is the first data centre provider in Canada to utilize Emerson Network Power’s cooling system, Liebert DSE.

BLACKIRON Data partnered with Emerson to select and install the technology at their new Toronto DC3 site, Canada’s first Tier III design and construction-certified data centre facility.

The facility uses multiple 40-tonne Liebert DSE cooling systems to regulate cooling in the 50,000-square-foot data centre, with power density at 15kW per rack. Each system contains variable speed fans, staged evaporator coils, tandem Copeland Scroll Digital compressors and pumped refrigerant economizers to ensure highly efficient and effective cooling, no matter the season.

The installation of the system allows BLACKIRON to save up to 100 million litres of water waste a year.
