Two (2) sixty (60) ton air-cooled chillers with chilled water storage tanks were installed to serve the first phase of the data center with space was included for one (1) additional chiller to be added in the future. Duty/Standby chilled water pumps with onboard variable frequency drives were also installed, as well as twelve (12) APC In-Row coolers serving the initial build of the data center.
