Iceotope in the UK has teamed up with ST Telemedia Global Data Centres and Schneider Electric on a liquid immersion cooling proof of concept to reduce power consumption and wafer use.

The proof of concept will be tested in STT GDC’s R&D Centre of Excellence in Singapore. It will use Iceotope’s chassis-level precision immersion technology which uses dielectric liquid as a heat transfer medium instead of air provides higher thermal transfer capacity and improved efficiency. The liquids used by Iceotope are touch safe, non-conductive, non-toxic, non-flammable and non-ozone depleting. Using the dielectric fluid as a cooling medium.  This can reduce the reliance on some of the traditional energy-hungry components of the cooling ecosystem such as chillers and computer room air-conditioning (CRACs) units.

“STT GDC is excited to be partnering with Schneider Electric and Iceotope on this POC as we take concrete steps to reduce resource consumption as part of our sustainable data centre framework,” said Daniel Pointon, Group CTO, ST Telemedia Global Data Centres. “Liquid cooling technology is no longer a niche implementation but rather a near-term technology that, when scaled, can enable data centres to manage higher power density, reduce energy consumption and yet maintain operational reliability. We look forward to working with Schneider Electric and Iceotope on this exciting technology,” he added.

“We are delighted to be able to share the capability of Iceotope’s chassis-level precision immersion cooling with STT GDC’s and their customers,” said David Craig, Iceotope’s Chief Executive Officer. “Together we are deploying a liquid-cooled solution that brings game-changing savings in the use of water, energy, and space to enterprises driving towards net zero”.

“We are looking forward to supporting STT GDC in their efforts to become an even more sustainable business and continuing to play a key role in mitigating climate change with our customers and partners,” said Michael Kurniawan Iskandar, Secure Power Business VP for Singapore, Malaysia & Brunei Cluster at Schneider Electric. “At Schneider Electric, we have a strong track record of supporting data centre operators with our best-in-class dynamic cooling optimisation solutions that leverage cutting-edge technology such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. As an impact company that has always championed sustainability and pioneered green innovations, marrying our expertise with STT GDC’s ambitions was a natural fit,” he added.;
