Digitisation is one of the economic megatrends of our age. Most businesses are reliant on smooth-running information technology (IT) – and thus on data centres, the IT all-rounder. But how can a sensitive digital infrastructure be operated as safely, efficiently and sustainably as possible? With its QUANTUM chiller and SPECTRUM heat pump, ENGIE Refrigeration now takes care of ten local data centres belonging to a German provider – and is breaking new ground for the IT industry in the process.
Heat pumps instead of gas! At a state-of-the-art real-estate complex near the French metropolitan region of Bordeaux, a climate-neutral future is in the air, assisted by a new SPECTRUM Water from ENGIE Refrigeration. In our interview with Roman Steddin, the product manager explains why our heat pump is exactly the right choice for this project.
Anyone who has been in hospital knows that pleasant temperatures assist recovery. A clinic in Bavaria now provides such temperatures with a QUANTUM Water chiller from ENGIE Refrigeration, ensuring that the clinic runs smoothly.
Food production is one of the most sensitive industries. In this sector, heating supply requirements are particularly exacting. What reliable solutions does ENGIE Refrigeration provide to meet these requirements? The expert Frank Glaser, a key account manager for industrial and commercial heating at ENGIE Refrigeration, explains using the Osatina Group as an example.
Airports are the hubs of our globalised world. Refrigeration technology plays a key role in ensuring that processes run smoothly and visitors feel comfortable in the terminal buildings.

In addition, he presents the best practices we have developed in our many years of experience.
Erring on the side of caution – in the chemicals industry in particular, this is a number-one priority for many areas. One area that is highly sensitive is production.

How can data centres become more green? Ludwigsburg District Office asked itself that very question in relation to its in-house data centre. It found its answer with ENGIE Refrigeration. A machine type HHR 130 thermeco2 high-temperature heat pump with refrigeration now provides sustainable server cooling on site.
In the lab, precise temperature specifications need to be maintained. Even the smallest deviation can quickly affect test results and, in the worst case, make them unusable.
