Aqua Unveils Hot Spot Cooling Solution

Award-winning South Coast cooling specialist engineering firm Aqua Group showcased their latest innovation at this year’s Data Centre World conference on 12-13 April, when the UK’s annual Data Centre industry event arrived in London

Members of the Aqua team unveiled the company’s latest innovation: a versatile mini-sized cooling distribution unit uniquely tailored for Data Centre hotspot removal that presents simple-to-install and cost-effective technology to tap into an existing cooling system.

Aqua’s new small and compact Temperation Unit is specifically designed for the hot spot removal market and can either be placed in the bottom 8U of the cooling rack or fitted beneath a 300mm raised floor.

The team also exhibited Aqua’s full range of Data Centre Cooling solutions, including chillers, hybrid adiabatic cooler and Leak Prevention System (LPS). Aqua’s unique and patented LPS won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise (Innovation) just last year.

Aqua’s Data Centre Product Manager, Mike West, said: “Attending the Data Centre World event offered us a great opportunity to be speak with key decision-makers in the Data Centre industry and to present our innovative cooling systems to the IT and data storage sector.”

“We believe our products have the potential to change the future of data centre cooling. Not only can they be tailor-made to adapt to individual clients’ specific circumstances and needs but our systems are also environmentally-friendlier, energy saving and more cost-effective alternatives to many of the chiller systems currently used in the sector, We’re hoping to make long-lasting business connections as a direct result of the Data Centre World event” Mike said.

Aqua Group technology has already been successfully installed in a number of Data Centres in the UK and abroad, including at Swansea University’s new Bay Campus and in a state-of-the-art US data storage facility in the San Francisco area of California.
