Airedale International is to supply data centre cooling in Europe for CyrusOne, a global real estate investment trust.

The initial two-year agreement will see Airedale deliver solutions in Dublin and Amsterdam, with each having an IT loading of 54MW. Further announcements expected over the next 18 months.
The cooling will consist specifically designed SmartCool chilled water PAC systems and OptiChill free cooling chillers, designed to maximise free-cooling. The process is an alternative method to adiabatic cooling, thus avoiding significant water costs whilst still delivering quality Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE). The equipment will be manufactured at Airedale’s production facility in Leeds, and backed by a European-wide network of support engineers

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, Managing Director 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.''
