Project Description

Data Centre RO Purification System

a new reverse osmosis (RO) water purification system


Client: Confidential Client
Location: Grangecastle, Co. Dublin, Ireland
Date: 2017
Project: Design, Installation and Commissioning of a 22m3 water purification system.

Details: Ethos Engineering, the Mechanical and Electrical consultants for this Data Centre project specified a new Reverse Osmosis (RO) water purification system to supply treated water to adiabatic coolers for the new Data Centre at Grangecastle, Co. Dublin.


Whitewater worked with Kirby Engineering, the mechanical contractors on the project to supply, install and commission the specified water purification system. This comprised an RO plant to provide 22m3/hr of RO water to the adiabatic cooler manufacturer requirements.

Some of the challenges faced were at the design stage, as the plant had to operate at low/no flow during the ‘cold’ season while still maintaining the water quality required, together with adhering to a tight project schedule within an ongoing construction environment where changes can occur requiring alteration of the planned installation e.g. the RO plant required lifting into place at high level with consequent longer runs to pick up the various utilities.


Handover of a validated, fully operational system to the Data Centre client was achieved on time and within budget.
