Strategies for upgrading cooling systems for two existing data centres have been explored. The systems are located in a challenging noise environment. The ability of the systems to withstand conventional noise control treatment was explored. For one system, a conventional noise control solution has been adopted. For the second system a more unusual solution is being considered using only outdoor air. The project is ongoing.
