Airedale signs data centre deal with CyrusOne

UK: Airedale International Air Conditioning is to supply CyrusOne, a premier global data centre real estate investment trust, with cooling solutions for its upcoming European data centre projects.

CyrusOne, with its headquarters in Dallas, Texas, has 45 data centres worldwide providing mission-critical data centre facilities for approximately 1,000 customers, including more than 200 Fortune 1000 companies.

Under the new agreement, Airedale will supply complete cooling solutions for multiple CyrusOne data centres over an initial two-year period. These sites 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 systems and OptiChill free-cooling chillers, designed to maximise free-cooling. 

“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,” said 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.”

“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,” commented Airedale MD Tony Cole. “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.”
