In today’s critical facilities, there are certain services whose importance simply cannot be understated:

  1. Power
  2. Cooling
  3. Compressed Air

A loss of any of these can result in lost revenue, customer defections, lost product, and in some extreme cases, death. This paper will focus on critical cooling and the means to ensure that a facility has cooling even under the most adverse conditions. It will list the steps to developing a cooling contingency plan, and how best to implement that plan to achieve minimum downtime.
