OJ drives is cooling a large data centre in Ireland
by Jesper Kastrup, International Key Account Manager
Three years ago, OJ was approached by a customer, a German fan manufacturer, who had won a big job from one of their customers - cooling a new data centre in Ireland.
OJ’s customer immediately asked OJ to join the project of delivering 600 fans. Of course, we accepted; it was a challenge, as the area of fan-wall-applications was new to us. This was in the Spring of 2015.
One of the highlights was that we solved the task and fulfilled the end-user’s expectations, thanks to the close co-operation with the customer and their customer. It gave us a strong position as supplier when building future data centres in Ireland.
Also, we have obtained a good reference. OJ’s customer uses this big job as positive testimonial for future projects where OJ drives is included. It is an excellent recommendation that can open up for new and future projects in Europe.
Positioning data centres in Ireland and now also in Denmark is simply because these countries deliver green energy, which OJ supports with an energy-efficient solution. An increasing part of OJ’s sales comes from energy-efficient solutions within renewable energy.
With such a success on the resume, OJ has positioned itself in the lead of future large data centre projects in Ireland. Over the next few years, we expect to sell several thousand drives to data centres in Ireland and hopefully also in Denmark. The first delivery contained 600 fans. It looks promising.
We are always looking for people, who have the know-how and skills we need to create the best company possible.
