The University of Tromsø Expands Use of Asetek’s Liquid Cooling


New Order for RackCDU Continues Energy Savings for Arctic University

November 17, 2014 Asetek®, the world’s leading supplier of computer liquid cooling solutions, today announced that it has received an order for five RackCDU™ to expand on the University of Tromsø’s (UiT) existing installation in Norway. The order is of strategic importance to Asetek as it is a repeat order following 12 months of real life pilot testing and builds on UiT’s previously announced program to reduce energy consumption in the University’s new HPC (High Performance Computing) facility. In addition, this installation of RackCDU D2C™ is the first to enable waste heat recovery by using the heat from the servers to heat the university campus.

“Asetek is particularly pleased with the expansion of the UiT’s Stallo cluster. UiT was our first RackCDU customer and their extensive pilot testing has validated our performance, reliability and waste heat re-use claims,” said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek. “Asetek’s liquid cooling for data centers address key European issues such as high energy costs, the need for “green” technology and the importance of waste energy reuse.”

RackCDU D2C is a “free cooling” solution that captures server heat, reduces data center cooling costs by over 50% and allows increases in data center server density. D2C removes heat from CPUs, GPUs, and memory modules within servers using water, eliminating the need for chilling to cool these primary sources for overheating of computers and servers.
