California Energy Commission to fund the projects. Energy and Cost Savings Data to be Made Publicly Available

February 10, 2015 — Asetek® announced today that it has been selected by the California Energy Commission (CEC) to perform a $3,552,678 project to install RackCDU D2C™ (Direct-to-Chip) liquid-cooling in two large scale, super computing data centers in California.  The project will include installation of RackCDU in approximately 90 racks of servers and the addition of RackCDU D2C liquid cooling to servers from multiple OEMs. Additional monitoring equipment will be installed to track energy-savings, cost-savings and computational performance over a period of 12-months following system installation.  Results will be published through a CEC report to be released following project completion.

“This project is evidence of Asetek’s momentum in the data center and supercomputing segments and further validates the value of Asetek’s direct-to-chip liquid cooling for high performance and high utilization data centers,” said André Sloth Eriksen, Founder and CEO of Asetek. 

Funding for this project is to be provided through California’s Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) Program, managed by the CEC.  Asetek was selected from seven data center projects through a multi-phase competitive bidding process.  The project start-date is anticipated to be July 1, 2015.  The duration of the project is expected to be 24 months with hardware installed in two phases, in month 6 and month 13.
