The facility now counts six innovation labs all in one site. In addition to continuous R&D and product testing, the centre is designed to introduce existing and prospective customers to Vertiv's thermal management portfolio, offering them first-hand experience of a variety of technologies to help them decide which are most suited for their needs.
Supported by consultation from R&D and engineering specialists, customers visiting the centre from around the world can witness a comprehensive range of cooling equipment – from pumped refrigerant to evaporative technologies – all under one roof.
The latest Adiabatic Free-cooling Chiller Innovation Lab provides the unique opportunity to test chillers up to 1.5 MW in extreme operating conditions between -10 and +55 degrees Celsius.
With the addition of the new lab, the centre has the capability of simulating any partial load at infinite test points up to an unrivalled 5 MW of total installed capacity.
Giordano Albertazzi, president for Vertiv in Europe, Middle East and Africa, commented: “Our award-winning portfolio is a result of continued investment in R&D and constant analysis of customer feedback. This new lab further demonstrates our laser focus on developing industry leading technology, and our commitment to providing customers with advanced product knowledge.
“We know that no two installations are the same, so it is vital that the equipment put into each facility is right for its specific design and needs. The Customer Experience Centres are the perfect venue to see all technologies in action, and to work collaboratively with customers to ensure they implement the best solution to match their requirements in any given condition.”
