JAPAN: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has developed a container-type data centre with a hybrid cooling system comprising immersion cooling, air cooling and water cooling.
Being capable of simultaneously providing 25kVA of immersion cooling, 8kVA of air cooling and 8kVA of water cooling, the new 40kVA-class 12ft container-type data centre can accommodate a diverse range of servers and other devices for edge computing.
In addition, a space of 1.4m x 1.3m has been secured inside the container, making it easier to install or remove servers.
System performance in a 40°C environment is expected to achieve a PUE of 1.05 for immersion cooling alone (1.14 when immersion cooling and air cooling are used in combination).
MHI says it will provide the product to customers for trial operation for a fixed period from this month, and begin demonstration testing to support commercialisation at the Yokohama Hardtech Hub (YHH), a manufacturing co-creation space on the grounds of MHI’s Yokohama Dockyard & Machinery Works Honmoku Plant in Naka-ku, Yokohama.
