Waste Heat for Cooling
A biogas driven fuel cell of 250 KWe supplies electricity to a T mobile data centre in Munich, Germany. The waste heat from the fuel cell in the form of exhaust gas at 380˚C is directly fed to a Thermax absorption chiller to deliver 150 kW of cooling.
Data centres require round the year, 24/7 supply of electricity and cooling. T mobile has chosen the above system for its high reliability and availability.
