UK/USA: Airedale International’s parent company Modine has announced a strategic expansion of its data centre cooling activities into the North American market.
The move comes on the back of record data centre revenues for Airedale’s data centre cooling activities in the UK and Europe.
Airedale’s current success is attributable, in part, to its recent engineered solutions framework agreement with CyrusOne, a global data centre provider headquartered in the US. Under this agreement, Airedale provides CyrusOne cutting edge indoor and outdoor cooling solutions for its data centre sites throughout Europe. In addition, they supply exact, customer-centric thermal management solutions to other leading data centre colocation and digital providers in the UK, Europe and the Americas.
Modine plans to use its North American presence, manufacturing footprint and thermal management expertise, to deploy integrated data centre cooling solutions to the US market.
“In order to keep up with our ever-increasing reliance on digital technologies, the data centre industry is growing exponentially. In support of this growth, the HVAC industry must step up to the plate with advanced technologies for cooling of servers critical to the operation of data centre facilities,” said Modine vice president Matt McBurney.
