Air Conditioning Rentals – Special Events – Colorado Springs

Computer Room Uptime rents air conditioners (big and small) to many different industries:  IT Environments, Industrial/Construction, Offices/Schools, Health Care, and Special Events.  From time to time we run across a unique special event that needs portable air conditioning rentals.  We’ve partnered with Toyota Motorsport to cool down their electric race car and crew at the annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC).  The PPIHC race is run on a 12.42 mile course with 156 turns that begins at 9,390 feet and finishes at the 14,100 foot summit of America’s Mountain; Pikes Peak.  The PPIHC is the second oldest motor sports race in America, first completed in 1916, and is located in the Colorado Springs region.  For years, this event has been dominated by purpose-built gasoline-powered hill climbing cars.  During this year’s event Toyota Motorsport placed sixth overall and won the electric car category with its TMG EVP002 car driven by Fumio Nutahara.


Computer Room Uptime provided the spot cooling for the electric car’s battery system and two powerful motors capable of producing 350 kilowatts of power and 664 pound-feet of torque, which set a new lap record of 10 minutes and 15.38 seconds. The EVP002 has a top speed of 143 mph.  The cutting edge technology and batteries located in Toyota’s EVP002 are similar to the high technology IT equipment located in your data center.  They need to be kept cool to operate properly and reliably during this grueling race.  The portable air conditioners were perfect for the crew who could easily load them up in the back of their truck to the racetrack on Pikes Peak.  The spot coolers are a perfect solution, since they pull very little energy and can be run on small generators.  Both the EVP002 and crew enjoyed the cold air their spot cooling rentals provided during the mid 90 degree weekend.


It’s only fitting Toyota Racing rented Computer Room Uptime’s MovinCool spot coolers, since Toyota was the company who originally invented the MovinCool portable air conditioners.  Back in the early 80s Toyota needed a way to cool down their factory workers building their cars.  It turns out that Toyota builds great cars and great portable air conditioners.


Computer Room Uptime is ready for all your temporary cooling needs throughout the state of Colorado and Wyoming, whether it’s your valuable IT equipment or your high-tech electric race car.  We have a large rental fleet of portable air conditioners, and deliver them the same day to your Front Range (Denver, Colorado Springs, Denver Tech Center, Fort Collins) location from our Denver warehouse.  Please call Computer Room Uptime at 303-908-8043 for your next air conditioning rental.
