Cooling specialists Airedale International have signed an agreement with CyrusOne to supply cooling solutions for data centre projects in Europe, including Amsterdam and Dublin – and expects more similar contracts in the next 18 months.
Leeds-based Airedale will supply complete cooling solutions for multiple CyrusOne data centres over an initial two-year period. Sites covered include CyrusOne’s Dublin facility, in solving three buildings at Grange Castle Business Park South.
Airedale will also supply cooling technology to the Amsterdam facility, made up of two buildings at PolanenPark. The cooling solutions will consist of specifically-engineered SmartCool™ chilled water PAC systems and OptiChill™ free cooling chillers, designed to maximise free-cooling.
Tesh Durvasula, President, Europe at CyrusOne, said: “Airedale is known for providing intelligently-designed solutions that deliver best-in-class cooling efficiencies and we are looking forward to implementing this expertise into our developments. As a company, we have ambitious expansion plans in Europe and see Airedale as a trusted partner to help us deliver low PUEs and high availability.”
Tony Cole, MD at Airedale, said:“We’re proud to announce this significant contract award as not only does it cement Airedale’s reputation for supplying precision air conditioning equipment into high-tech industries, but it also showcases British manufacturing at its best in a tough economic climate. We are investing in our production facilities as a result of these projects, and there is a real buzz around the place as we look forward to producing the units and delivering a fantastic solution for the client”.
