This new best-in-class facility will focus on research and development, spearheading innovation to facilitate the rapid growth and demand for XNRGY's mission-critical climate systems in sectors such hyperscale data centre, semi conductor clean rooms, life sciences, healthcare, as well as battery manufacturing facilities. Applying vertical integration, full automation, and eliminating supply chain delays will expedite product delivery and significantly reduce product lead times compared to the industry average.
"New ideas are needed in every sector of our industry. Breakthroughs such as immersive cooling for data centers and new fan and motor technology will replace old inefficient methods of cooling critical facilities. In every business, Innovation drives excellence and XNRGY is prepared to take the lead in sustainability through technology. It's exciting to be part of a dynamic team of professionals who share a persistent dedication to excellence."
Chief Technology Officer - XNRGY Climate Systems
XNRGY is developing solutions that will not use millions of gallons of water per day. These systems are integrating very high-efficiency refrigerant systems coupled with proprietary machines moving the air. Immersion cooling is the next step. XNRGY wants to be part of the solution to cool hyper-scale data centers without millions of gallons of water a day.
"These are very exciting times! With our two state-of-the-art facilities working in tandem to manufacture premier climate systems, XNRGY can offer exceptional service to our clients from the East to the West coast. Top-notch engineers have already been engaged to meet the rising demands for our advanced technologies."
