Airedale Commences Corscale Data Center Chiller Deliveries

Airedale has celebrated another US milestone by commencing chiller deliveries to client Corscale’s Gainesville Crossing Data Center Campus.

14 OptiChill Free Cool data center chillers have been transported from Airedale’s Rockbridge plant to the 130-acre site in Northern Virginia and carefully positioned on the roof of the new facility using a huge crane in a carefully planned operation.

This was the first time the on-site contractor had seen the OptiChill free cooling chiller and feedback was positive. The on-site team stated that the chillers were built to a much higher standard and quality than the units that they are used to in the market, which is great to see and hear.

Once commissioned, the chillers will provide cooling to 8 x 9MW data halls in building 1 of what is eventually planned to be a 300MW development.

Airedale’s OptiChill chillers were selected by Corscale due to their market-leading free cooling performance. At the launch of the partnership Nic Bustamante, Senior Vice President, Development from Corscale said,

“We selected to work with Airedale by Modine because we wanted something that mirrors our dedication to deliver sustainability at scale. We wanted to work with an established brand that our customers can trust. Airedale products are renowned for their innovative approach and commitment to efficiency, which in turn reduces wastage, and we were impressed by the work they have done across the world with other data centres.”

Rob Bedard, General Manager of Airedale’s North American Data Center business said,

“We are delighted to celebrate yet another milestone at our Virginia plant by seeing these first 14 chillers leave the plant and start their life in service at Corscale’s new data center. The whole team turned out to see the first trucks leave and that is testament to how proud we are of what we have achieved together here. ”
