UK Pool Heats Water, Cuts Costs & Emissions with Tiny Data Centre Exmouth, England

Exmouth Leisure Centre in Devon (south west England) has become the first public swimming pool in the UK to benefit from the heat generated by a tiny data centre to reduce its energy costs. Deep Green, a start-up offering computing power for artificial intelligence and machine learning, installed a washing-machine-sized data centre into the community centre, which surrounded the computers with oil to capture the heat. The hot oil is then pumped into a heat exchanger to warm the water in the pool to around 30C (86F) for 60% of the pool’s operating time. This reduces the leisure centre’s gas requirements by 62%, saving an estimated £20,000 a year, and reducing annual carbon emissions by approximately 26 tonnes.

Be Military Fit raises vital funds for the Royal British Legion Industries Across the UK

Royal British Legion Industries is a national charity supporting the Armed Forces, people with disabilities and people who are unemployed. Their mission is: “improving lives every day by inspiring those we help and supporting them to find work and lead independent lives.”

During September 2019, Be Military Fit (BMF) joined forces with the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) to create “Britain’s Bravest Military Challenge.” We worked with military leaders to create an authentic experience.  Participants took on demanding military-based challenges and training drills, requiring them to dig deep in a series of fun but physically demanding physical and mental challenges.

Twenty BMF Parks took part across the country and raised £19,000.
