In a groundbreaking move towards the future of sustainable data centers, Start Campus and Nautilus Data Technologies have announced a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will revolutionize data center development. The partnership aims to bring about a new era of environmental stewardship and efficiency in the industry, with Nautilus’ cutting-edge cooling technology at the forefront.

A Sustainable Vision Unites Start Campus and Nautilus

Start Campus is the driving force behind the 495 MW hyperscale data center development, widely known as the SINES Project. Start Campus is on a mission to redefine what’s possible in the data center ecosystem, where their commitment to sustainability and efficiency has led them to seek out dedicated partners who also share their vision. Among those, is none other than Nautilus Data Technologies, a company renowned for its pioneering zero-water consuming cooling system.

Under the terms of the MoU, Start Campus will integrate Nautilus’ patented cooling technology into the SINES Project, starting with Phase 1 of construction currently underway in Sines. This move will enhance the cooling capabilities of the campus, meeting the high-density, liquid-cooled server requirements that modern data centers demand.

Elevating Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

Nautilus’ zero-water consuming cooling system has already proven its ability to elevate energy efficiency and cooling capabilities across various data center phases. In Phase 2 of the SINES Project, Start Campus plans to fully leverage Nautilus’ integrated technology and delivery solution for its 120 MW expansion. This marks a significant step towards the realization of a sustainable and efficient data center model.

A Shared Ambition for Green Innovation

The signed agreement solidifies the shared ambition of Start Campus and Nautilus to revolutionize data center development through green innovation. By combining their expertise and resources, these two visionary companies are reshaping the blueprint of tomorrow’s data center landscape.

Words from the Visionaries

Afonso Salema, CEO of Start Campus, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, saying, “At Start Campus, we believe in pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the data center ecosystem. This partnership with Nautilus aligns perfectly with our mission to explore innovative solutions that maximize efficiency while minimizing environmental impact. We can’t wait to see the future of this collaboration.”

Rob Pfleging, CEO of Nautilus Data Technologies, echoed this sentiment, stating, “Teaming up with Start Campus, a visionary in the data center sector, allows us to elevate the efficiency and environmental stewardship of our solutions. Together, we are reshaping the blueprint of tomorrow’s data center landscape.”

A Greener Future Beckons

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

This collaboration is a shining example of how innovation and sustainability can go hand in hand, leading the way for a greener and more efficient future in data center development.
