Start Campus partner with Nautilus Data Technologies forsustainable cooling options at Sines campus

Start Campus, the company responsible for developing the SINES Project — a 495MW hyperscale data centre development — and Nautilus Data Technologies have announced a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for Nautilus’ cooling technology to support sustainable cooling for Start Campus’s SINES Project operations.

Under the terms of the MoU, Start Campus will integrate Nautilus’ pioneering zero-water consuming cooling system, a patented technology proven to elevate energy efficiency and cooling capabilities across various phases of the project. As stated in the agreement, Start Campus and Nautilus will be working together to implement cooling technology during Phase 1 of construction, currently underway in Sines. The units will aid in enhancing existing cooling designs at the campus to fulfil Start Campus’s high-density, liquid-cooled server requirements. In Phase 2, Start Campus plans to leverage the full Nautilus’ integrated technology and delivery solution for its 120MW expansion.

“At Start Campus, we believe in pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the data centre ecosystem,” said Afonso Salema, CEO of Start Campus. “Start Campus is always thrilled to find dedicated partners who share our vision for a sustainable and efficient data centre model. This partnership with Nautilus aligns perfectly with our mission to explore innovative solutions that maximise efficiency while minimising environmental impact. We can’t wait to see the future of this collaboration.”

Rob Pfleging, CEO of Nautilus Data Technologies, added: “Nautilus provides the foundational infrastructure that, when combined with partners like Start Campus, paves the way for the most efficient and sustainable data centres. Teaming up with Start Campus, a visionary in the data centre sector, allows us to elevate the efficiency and environmental stewardship of our solutions. Together, we are reshaping the blueprint of tomorrow’s data centre landscape.”

The signed agreement solidifies the shared ambition of Start Campus and Nautilus to revolutionise data centre development through green innovation. Their combined expertise promises to shape the future of the industry, embracing sustainable practices and advanced cooling solutions.

As the partnership evolves, both entities foresee Nautilus’ patented water-cooling system playing an integral role in Start Campus’ designs. The mutual goal is to incorporate the full breadth of Nautilus’ cutting-edge technology across future projects, driving greater efficiency and sustainability in the data centre sector.
