Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has a new containerized data center offering with a built-in hybrid cooling system.

The solution is expected to be commercially available by the end of 2023.

The data center module is a 40kVA-class 12ft container and it has both immersion cooling and air-cooling systems built in. When the data center is operated at a temperature of 40°C, it can achieve a PUE of 1.05 when immersion cooling is used alone, and 1.14 with a hybrid approach.

MHI is currently providing the solution to customers for trialing and will begin a demonstration test at the Yokohama Hardtech Hub in Japan. Dell Technologies Japan has provided a server for verification and NEC Networks & System Integration Corporation will verify the installation and server maintenance procedures.

The data center has been under development since 2021 as part of a joint effort between MHI, KDDI Corporation, and NEC.

Earlier this year, MHI acquired the US industrial power solutions company Concentric for an undisclosed amount.
