The University of Melbourne Data Hall 2

Meinhardt created a solution that has enabled the client to save money and energy by virtue of its lower power consumption.  This was done through close collaboration with partners and suppliers to create bespoke elements of design which enabled a very tight 4-month construction program to be met. 

The provision of a Diesel Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply (DRUPS) system, highly unusual to Australia, provides critical, uninterrupted power to the Data Hall.

The building is targeted to provide the University with a sufficiently redundant high density facility which:

  • Supports Research High Performance and Super Computing Requirements
  • Rationalises IT equipment
  • Reduces running costs to operate IT equipment by reducing power consumption
  • Is scalable in a modular design to meet future UoM Data Centre capacity requirements

Specification of a rear-door heat exchanger with no moving parts, means it is less likely to fail.  The overall electrical engineering design has enabled the client to save money and energy by virtue of lower power consumption.
