North Vancouver Hub

Cooling Critical Communications Equipment

Millions of people depend on this national telecommunications provider every day. So when their hub in North Vancouver needed to replace the chillers cooling their server rooms, it was vital that service was not lost even for a moment.

The Challenge

Over 70 tons of cooling was needed at various locations in the building. The valves in the chilled loop system were to be replaced one at a time over a period of 6 weeks, requiring the chiller to be shut down several times; at those times, our units would be the only source of cooling for their equipment. Even the slightest interruption of daily operations would be unacceptable, so there was absolutely no room for error.

The Solution

48 tons worth of air-cooled units were lifted onto the roof by crane and the cold air was ducted into the building and then directed into the correct aisles with strategically-placed fans. Two rooms that could not be reached from the roof were managed with two 5-ton water-cooled units each, and two 5-ton air-cooled units were used in a battery room in the basement. Cool Air also provided a generator and electrical distribution network to service all the units, as the building power would not have been sufficient. The entire install was completed in only three days. Throughout the renovation the operation of the units was monitored via periodic testing to make sure there weren’t any problems.

The Result

Because Cool Air was handling the air conditioning during the renovation, the telecommunication company was able to upgrade their cooling system while avoiding loss of service for any of their customers. They could be confident that their network was safe while improving the infrastructure that allows them to continue providing reliable phone and network service to Canadians.
