Reliable cost effective data centre cooling hire for planned and emergency cooling requirements

Data centres are one of the fastest growing areas of the commercial cooling market. Massive expansion in capacity has taken place over the recent years with this trend almost certain to continue with the introduction of cloud, virtualisation and other infrastructure outsourcing and co-location services. Full N plus 1 cooling redundancy or better is the standard in most data centres.

Maintaining Your Cooling Redundancy

If you have faulty or unreliable chiller plant we can supply temporary chillers to bring your data centre cooling resilience back to standard. Our chillers can be supplied on long or short contract terms to suite your business. All systems are backed-up with 24hr technical support for complete reliability at all times.

The systems can be supplied with generators for fully stand alone emergency data centre cooling hire.


Typical applications include;


  • Maintaining redundancy whilst fixed cooling equipment is replaced. This could be supplying high volume temporary CCU’s or chillers.
  • Maintenance or modifications to a chilled water system requiring isolation of certain areas. ACR can advise-on and supply innovative solutions to maintain service.
  • To maintain guaranteed cooling redundancy in the event of a chiller break-down. ACR have supplied rental chillers of large and small capacity to our clients to fulfil their contract terms.
