Operational support from Unica Datacenters includes site visits, inspections, installation and commissioning of the Asperitas AIC24 immersion cooling solutions. Customers will then be expertly instructed on how to operate the product and provided with ongoing customer support, updates and in the rare cases corrective maintenance. For servicing, an online self-service portal will be available 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

Arno Uiterweerd, Unica Datacenters Managing Director commented: “We strongly believe in immersion cooling technology as it supports a shared ambition to achieve high energy efficiency and sustainability goals within the datacentre environment.

According to a recently published report from Dell’Oro Group, data center physical infrastructure (DCPI) revenues are forecast to grow at an 8 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2021 to 2026, to above $31 billion. Growth is forecast to remain resilient, driven by sustainability-minded data center expansion from cloud and colocation service providers, despite near-term supply chain constraints persisting and macroeconomic headwinds forming.
Greenergy Data Centers has recently built a new, large-scale data center in Tallinn, Estonia. Part of the Three Seas Initiative (3SI), it’s the most modern and energy-efficient data center in the region. 3SI was launched in 2015 by the countries of the Adriatic, Baltic, and Black Seas to pursue joint public policy goals for transport, energy, and digital infrastructure. The individual projects are implemented by the private sector with funding from the 3SI Investment Fund. The goal is to improve connections between 12 EU-member states in the region and thus strengthen EU cohesion. Delta’s uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) for the project were supplied, installed, and commissioned together with Delta’s partner, DC Solutions.
