Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) has scooped the participant - new data centre award at the first EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres Awards
Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) has scooped the participant - new data centre award at the first EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres Awards. The facility at the company's head office in Weybridge, Surrey was designed, built and and is now managed by Keysource, and is one of the most energy efficient data centres of its kind within the UK. Keysource's Rob Elder, who received the award on behalf of PGS at a ceremony in Nice, France, commented: "We would like to congratulate PGS on this achievement that recognises the company's considerable hard work and commitment to reducing energy consumption and minimising environmental impact.
As an Endorser we see the huge potential for organisations to improve efficiency and whilst PGS were early participants, it is a positive sign that an increasing number of organisations are now signing up to the EU Code of Conduct." The PGS data centre utilises an innovative approach to cooling which achieves an annualised PUE of better than 1.2. This approach combined with the adherence to other best practices offers significant benefits over a traditional approach. PGS has used this experience at Weybridge to relook at the company's other global data centre sites to implement best practice where possible to improve performance and efficiency.
With ten design engineers attaining the ISEB qualification - EU Code of Conduct on Data Centre Energy Efficiency since becoming an official endorser in March 2009, Keysource is able to help companies understand the route to becoming a participant.
