Key elements of data centre cooling and air conditioning projects by Procol

Data centre air conditioning

Air conditioning projects of any size

Our in-house team designs and installs high-efficiency cooling systems from 5kw to 5MW, with inbuilt redundancy levels to meet your requirements.

We can undertake or manage the entire process, and aim to make it smooth and stress-free.

Live-environment upgrades

Our expertise in data centres and other complex technical enviroments enables us to often carry out air conditioning projects within live, operational environments.

Our ability to do this is a key factor for businesses who need to minimise room disruption and avoid downtime on technical equipment.

Air conditioning in a data centre

Bespoke cooling solutions

As an independent supplier of air conditioning and cooling systems, we create bespoke solutions and are able to utilise technologies from all the main suppliers.

Such systems range from inverter-driven direct expansion, and indirect free-cooling chilled water, through to direct fresh-air free cooling with DX backup.

Energy efficiency

We can help you minimise the energy costs incurred by your cooling and air conditioning systems.

For example, we specify and install direct and indirect free-air cooling systems that are considerably cheaper to run than traditional direct-expansion or chilled-water systems.

Build and fit out of a data centre


We are experienced in constructing secure environments to high levels of Government accreditation, including the design and fabrication of specialist components such as Billinghurst grilles.

A high proportion of our staff are cleared to SC for the purposes of this work. We are also becoming increasingly involved in data centre projects of a List X standard.

Fire protection equipment being installed in a data centre

Fire protection

We manage the installation of fully integrated fire-detection and gas-extinguishing or suppression systems.

These include IG 55 and nitrogen water mist for generator rooms, as well as VESDA early warning systems to detect very early signs of overheating or fire in the technical spaces.

Redundancy and power protection

It’s important that your cooling and other data centre systems remain unaffected should the mains supply fail. So we work closely with our consultants and suppliers to design, supply and install power supply systems with a high level of resilience.

Our work in this area includes experience of supplying and managing power, generator and fuel-system installations up to 6MW (N+1).
