Designed and developed specifically to meet the demands of high-end data centres, technotrans will start supplying cooling systems for high-performance servers to the USA at the beginning of 2024. The client and technology partner is an established major customer, a provider of data centre equipment. The order, with a volume in the single-digit million euro range, not only marks technotrans' entry into a fast-growing market, but also the start of a long-term co-operation with the prospect of increasing order volumes. The solution provided by technotrans is based on a direct liquid-cooling system (direct-to-chip cooling), which is particularly energy-efficient and works to effectively reduce the CO2 footprint of data centres.
There is a strong technology pull in the IT sector: the growing use of digital applications such as streaming, artificial intelligence and cloud services requires ever-increasing computing capacities, which is why the landscape for data centres is rapidly evolving. "With our cooling solutions, we provide a key technology that makes these leaps in
performance possible in the first place. Thanks to our particularly energy-efficient cooling systems, we also support server park operators on their path to green IT – and this order is just the beginning," says Michael Finger, spokesman of the Board of Management.
High-performance servers require a customised and efficient liquid cooling system to ensure their long-term functionality. technotrans has developed a solution that meets these specific demands. Following initial prototypes, small-batch production and after passing validation tests, the solution provided by technotrans will be produced in series. The specialist for thermal management solutions has thus attained its first major order in this sector. With this product, the company is pursuing a clear strategy that is based on profitable growth resulting from series production and a broad application spectrum. “Our systems provide maximum flexibility to our customers: they are suitable for the use in newly built data centres as well as for retrofitting existing server parks. When more computing power and new hardware is required, the cooling requirements often increase - and technotrans has the ideal solution for this. Entering the rapidly growing market for the energy-efficient cooling of data centres represents a significant milestone in the company's strategic development. technotrans is thus tapping into important additional growth potential," emphasises Michael Finger.
The cooperation with the business partner thus focuses on continuous business development. The order volume in the single-digit millions is expected to double as early as the coming year and continue to increase thereafter. The aim is to gradually intensify the collaboration between technotrans and the provider of data centre equipment in order to take a leading position in the market.
