UK’s MET Deploys the ChilledDoor® for supercomputer cooling

Motivair Corporation based in Buffalo, New York, manufacturer of The Chilled Door® Rack Cooling System and a global leader in high efficiency computer cooling systems announced it has deployed its ChilledDoor® Rack Cooling System at London’s Meteorological Office also known as The Met Office. An array of ChilledDoors were selected as the primary cooling system for the Met’s new state of the art supercomputer.

Headquartered in Exeter, England, the Met Office is the United Kingdom’s national weather service and is recognized as one of the world’s most accurate forecasters. The Met Office uses more than 10 million weather observations a day and an advanced atmospheric model to create 3,000 tailored forecasts and briefings each day that are delivered to customers ranging from government, businesses, the general public, armed forces and other organizations.

The Met’s new supercomputer will generate new advances for weather forecasting and accuracy in England, Scotland and other areas of the globe. This £97m ($145m) investment of which the ChilledDoors are a part of signifies an unprecedented commitment to advanced global weather forecasting and research.

The ChilledDoor® system installed at the Met provides 100% removal of the heat generated by the supercomputer which can reach up to 45 kW per server rack. Each ChilledDoor® works independently to control the exit air temperature of each computer rack creating what is known as a “Heat Neutral” white space.

The Met ChilledDoor® installation further highlights Motivair’s expansion into the EMEA market and its continued global expansion.
