Rackforce Data Center - Regina
Fujitsu Tier 3 Certified Data Centre
15,000 sq. ft.
All-Rite Plumbing & Heating
Rocky Point Engineering was retained to provide mechanical engineering services to deliver an Uptime Institute Tier 3 Certified turnkey data centre for Fujitsu. This is the first purpose built Fujitsu data centre in North America and is located near Regina, Saskatchewan. The project includes 8,500 ft2 of data hall with an additional 6,500 ft2 of ancillary spaces including post-disaster office areas. The mechanical system includes 200 tons of high efficiency air cooled chillers as well as an airside economizer sized to meet 100% of the data centre cooling loads at an outside temperature of 0°C. Data hall distribution is met by Rittal In-Row coolers. A variable pumping primary and secondary loop ensures an energy efficient distribution system. Heat is recovered from the chilled water return loop to feed a distributed heat pump loop serving the office and support areas. The facility targeted and achieved Tier 3 Certification from the Uptime Institute thus requiring concurrently maintainable N+1 equipment and distribution paths. This project is the second successful data centre completed with the same design and project management team.
