Norwegian real estate developer MIRIS has entered into an agreement with LiquidCool Solutions (LCS), a world leader in rack-based immersion cooling technology for datacenters. The agreement gives MIRIS the exclusive right to distribute LCS technology on heat recovery projects.

Together we will develop the next generation of datacenter racks, with the highest density and the most effective heat recovery that the industry has ever seen. LCS brings to the plan a technology that is uniquely able to recapture more than 90% of rack input energy in the form of a 60 degree C liquid, and an emphasis will be placed on reusing valuable energy that would otherwise be wasted,” says Svein H. Olavesen, VP of MIRIS.

During 2019 MIRIS went into partnership with leading providers of technology and solutions and developed a strategy to build 15 regional Edge datacenters with up to two megawatts of capacity each, and 25 local Edge facilities with up to 500 kilowatts of capacity each as a part of a pilot project.

To accomplish this MIRIS computing facilities will be connected as one virtual datacenter with functionality to move computing power where energy sources are needed. MIRIS also will build a High-Performance Compute platform that is capable of providing compute services like Artificial Intelligence, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Gaming, Autonomous Vehicles, Machine Intelligence, Analytics and Internet of Things.

Carbon emissions associated with datacenters have been a major contributor to man-made global warming and climate change. It is estimated that datacenters currently account for over 3% of electrical energy demand worldwide. The Miris / LCS partnership has a goal of eliminating a datacenter’s contribution to global warming by combining LCS ultra-green cooling technology and commercial use of waste heat, with renewable energy sources.

In addition to reducing the carbon footprint, a Miris/LCS datacenter offers many other advantages: significantly reduced space requirements; zero water consumption; no fans so the datacenter runs quietly; isolation of electronic components from air so IT hardware lasts longer. MIRIS datacenters will leverage all these advantages to create the greenest datacenters in the world, which we believe customers will demand,” says Stephen Einhorn, Co-Chairman, LiquidCool Solutions.
