MHI and ZutaCore to power the future of sustainable data centres

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, one of the world’s foremost industrial groups leading the way in clean energy, and ZutaCore, a trailblazer in the field of direct-on-chip, waterless liquid cooling solutions, announced a strategic partnership to bring zero-emissions to the data industry. MHI’s investment in ZutaCore will expedite the growth and development of sustainable liquid cooling solutions crucial for energy efficiency in an increasingly data-reliant world. Through the white-label sales agreement, MHI will combine ZutaCore’s HyperCool® dielectric direct-liquid-cooling technology with its extensive product line and technological expertise, at global scale. The comprehensive solution provides unprecedented benefits to high-performance computing workloads, server densification, and data centre sustainability.

ZutaCore’s trailblazing HyperCool® technology transforms the data centre landscape by allowing operators to significantly upgrade their existing infrastructure with little to no modifications to current real estate, power, or cooling systems, while leveraging unprecedent heat reuse capabilities. Merging this breakthrough with MHI Group’s fully integrated management system, low-carbon power generation facilities, and server immersion cooling systems, will dramatically address the pressing challenges faced by data centres today, including the enhancement of heat exhaust efficiency, promotion of energy conservation, and decabornization.

Erez Freibach, co-founder and CEO of ZutaCore, commented on the new partnership: “Our alliance with MHI marks a pivotal moment in the trajectory of sustainable data centres. Leveraging MHI’s extensive technological expertise and global reach alongside our groundbreaking HyperCool technology, we are poised to redefine data centre efficiency. This partnership is a testament to our shared commitment to fostering a zero-emission data industry, and we are excited to pave the way for unprecedented energy conservation and decarbonisation levels in this space.”

The worldwide surge in digital transformation (DX) has sparked an exponential rise in information processing, amplifying both the role and demand for data centres. Alongside this, the emergence of generative AI(Note1) necessitates using high-performance graphics processing units (GPUs) (Note2), leading to an uptick in power consumption by data centres that manage these high-performance servers. This is where ZutaCore’s innovative cooling solutions become an essential player. By implementing ZutaCore’s state-of-the-art technology, data centres can effectively manage the increased heat output and power consumption, promoting efficient operations and sustainability in the era of digital expansion.

“MHI is keen to support the ongoing transition of Data Centres towards smarter and more efficient through one stop solutions integrating power generation and cooling solution. Our new partner ZutaCore has already supplied its innovative HyperCool® solution to the world’s IT infrastructure and server companies, contributing to the realisation of sustainable data centres through effective heat exhaust for servers. The partnership with ZutaCore will accelerate contributing to further progress in Data Centre infrastructure.”, said Shin Gomi, General Manager in Business Development, Growth Strategy Office of MHI.

Drawing on its extensive expertise in various heat-related fields, MHI is committed to delivering comprehensive “One Stop Solutions” that encompass reliable and efficient low-carbon power generation facilities, integrated management systems, and high-efficiency cooling systems. These solutions are specifically tailored for data centres that utilise high-performance servers, a rapidly expanding market. By enabling decarbonised and efficient data centres, MHI and ZutaCore are at the forefront of driving the IT industry’s green transformation (GX).
