Amsterdam – March 16, 2021 – Immersion cooling specialist Asperitas has promoted Andy Young to CTO. He previously was director of research and development and after earlier positions at Ansys and Iceotope.

“I am thrilled to have this opportunity to lead the engineering team at Asperitas, working at a more strategic level within the company,” Young said. “We are growing from strength to strength through delivering high performance solutions whilst addressing the challenges faced with performance, carbon emissions and water-use reduction. I am proud to head up a team that provides such highly experienced service and support for our customers.”

In the last 12 months, Asperitas has expanded the team with a few more highly skilled individuals, filling positions in engineering, commercial, technical as well as management roles. This has complemented the significant customer successes of 2020 such as the deal wins for French bank Crédit Agricole and the Shell High Performance Computing cluster in their Amsterdam datacentre. This sets the bar high for scale-up plans for 2021. With company positions such as the role of Solutions Architect already posted, Asperitas is set to have substantial growth within the company over the coming year.

Rolf Brink, Asperitas Founder and CEO commented: “I am excited to be sharing the scale-up news, which has been a product of lots of diligent, hard work. The Asperitas vision is that in order to make the datacentre industry sustainable, integration within the global energy transition is vital, and our recent successes have brought us that bit closer to achieving an energy neutral datacentre industry. Overall, sustainability is central to everything we do, and we will not lose sight of our commitment.”
