GRC (Green Revolution Cooling) has announced its new business collaboration with HiTeam, a subsidiary of E-Smart Systems.

GRC will provide liquid immersion-cooling systems at the new ZELENDATA CENTRE in Technology Park in Vršac, Serbia, the country’s first green data centre.

The company said that the data centre will be a ‘significant’ saving in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) when compared to a traditional air-cooled data centre.

“Our goal is to provide infrastructure with lower operating costs, as well as being environmentally conscious,” said Goran Veljović, Sales and Marketing Director at E-Smart Systems.

“Using the ICEraQ immersion cooling system provides critical services today and will meet the needs of future data centre users while enabling companies to be environmentally responsible in their choice of data centre provider.

“As the first green data centre in Serbia, we are excited for the ZELENDATA CENTRE to lead the way, enabling Serbians to embrace business performance using green technologies.”

The main source of electricity for the data centre is the MK Fintel Winds’ Košava wind farm in Izbiste. According to the company, GRC’s immersion-cooling solution reduces electricity consumption of the cooling system at green data centre by 90% or approximately 40% of the total consumption of the facility.

“We are thrilled to partner with E-Smart Systems to offer our ICEraQ Quad immersion cooling systems to the southeastern Europe market,” said Peter Poulin, CEO at GRC.
