DUBAI, UAE, 11 March 2020: Vertiv, which provides digital infrastructure and continuity solutions, announced through a Press release a series of measures designed to meet increasing customer demand for innovative and efficient thermal-management technologies and services. This includes Vertiv Liebert OFC, which the company described as a new and highly advanced range of oil-free turbocor compressor chillers, launched in partnership with Geoclima. The family of air-cooled and water-cooled chillers will initially be available in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the company said.

The exclusive technology partnership with Geoclima, a company Vertiv described as specialising in innovative cooling systems with low environmental impact, enables Vertiv to build on its existing chiller technology and its track record around the globe. The Liebert OFC design has been optimised to utilise low-GWP refrigerants, including R1234ze, and to provide high energy efficiency, Vertiv said. Other refrigerants, including R513A and R134a, are also available in the range.

Kevin Brady, Vice President and General Manager of Thermal Management for Vertiv in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “We believe both Vertiv and Geoclima bring immense knowledge and experience to this technology partnership. The introduction of the Liebert OFC range will provide our data centre customers with the complete array of chiller offerings – scroll, fixed screw, inverter screw and turbocor – enabling them to meet their efficiency targets and stay ahead of regulations.”

Paolo Ferraris, President, Geoclima, said: “I am sure that the mix of Geoclima’s innovative product range, together with Vertiv’s state-of-the-art laboratories and a deep knowledge of data centre applications, make this technology partnership a sure success for both our companies.”

The Liebert OFC range, Vertiv said, will include water-cooled models from 300 kW to 1600 kW and air-cooled models from 300 kW to 1700 kW, which are also available with free-cooling and adiabatic configurations.
