UK: A technology partnership with Italian chiller manufacturer, Geoclima, sees Vertiv launch a range of oil-free Turbocor compressor chillers for lower GWP refrigerants like R1234ze and R513A.
Vertiv, formerly named Emerson Network Power, is launching the new Liebert OFC range at this week’s Data Center World in London. The family of air-cooled and water-cooled chillers will initially be available in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Speaking of the exclusive technology partnership with Geoclima, Kevin Brady, vice president and general manager of Thermal Management for Vertiv in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “We believe both Vertiv and Geoclima bring immense knowledge and experience to this technology partnership.
“The introduction of the Liebert OFC range will provide our data centre customers with the complete array of chiller offerings: scroll, fixed screw, inverter screw and Turbocor, enabling them to meet their efficiency targets and stay ahead of regulations.”
Paolo Ferraris, president of Geoclima said: “I am sure that the mix of Geoclima’s innovative product range together with Vertiv’s state of the art laboratories and a deep knowledge of data centre applications make this technology partnership a sure success for both our companies.”
The Liebert OFC range will include water-cooled models from 300kW to 1600kW and air-cooled models from 300kW to 1700 kW, which are also available with free-cooling and adiabatic configurations.
As part of Vertiv’s innovation roadmap, the company recently redesigned the entire floor-mount air conditioning range, including the direct expansion Vertiv Liebert PDX with variable speed compressors and the chilled water range with the newly redesigned Vertiv Liebert PCW.
