CyrusOne Selects Airedale to Implement Cooling Solutions in European Data Centers

RACINE, Wis., Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Modine Manufacturing Company (NYSE: MOD), a diversified global leader in thermal management technology and solutions, today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Airedale International Air Conditioning Ltd., a British cooling specialist leader, has signed an agreement with CyrusOne, the global real estate investment trust (REIT) specializing in highly reliable enterprise-class, carrier-neutral data center properties. Airedale will supply cooling solutions for upcoming data center projects in Europe.
Airedale will supply complete cooling solutions for multiple CyrusOne data centers over an initial two-year period. Sites covered by the agreement include CyrusOne’s Dublin and Amsterdam facilities. Airedale expects to announce additional European projects with CyrusOne over the next 18 months.
The cooling solutions will consist of specifically engineered SmartCool™ chilled water Precision Air Conditioning (PAC) systems and OptiChill™ free-cooling chillers, designed to maximize free-cooling. This process is an alternative method to adiabatic cooling, thus avoiding significant water costs while still delivering quality Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE).
“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,” says Tesh Durvasula, President, Europe at CyrusOne. “As a company, we have ambitious expansion plans in Europe and see Airedale as a trusted partner to help us deliver low PUE and high availability.”
Airedale has vast experience in supplying precision cooling solutions to the data center industry, from providing solutions for single server rooms to hyperscale facilities. The equipment will be manufactured at Airedale’s state-of-the art production facility in Leeds, England, supported by a skilled European-wide network of support engineers.
“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,” states Tony Cole, Managing Director at Airedale. “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.”
