    Munter’s new site to house its desiccant dehumidification products.

Munters has received an order worth $US137 million from a leading data centre colocation operator in the US.

The order includes Munters SyCool Split systems as well as field service work and will be delivered during 2025.

Munters president & CEO, Klas Forsström, said in this rapidly changing market this latest order reaffirms the company’s esteemed market position and showcases their expertise in cultivating lasting customer partnerships.

“SyCool´s infrastructure provides strategic flexibility for our customers, bridging requirements of today with visions of tomorrow,” he said.

Munters group vice president, Stefan Aspman, said SyCool is compatible with both air-cooled and liquid-cooled designs, which is a critical feature considering the rapid evolution of technology, options, and requirements in the data centre industry.

Munters SyCool Split is an energy efficient, thermosiphon-based dry cooling solution for data centres.

“It has been developed to minimize the environmental impact of data centres by providing free cooling without the use of water,” Aspman said.

“It was selected by the customer after an assessment of the various forms of cooling solutions currently available on the market, considering many attributes, including product quality, energy efficiency, water consumption, reliability, scalability, ease of maintenance and service support.”

Earlier this month Munters broke ground on an all-new site to house its desiccant dehumidification products and services for the North American market.

The 430,000 ft.[40,000 m[2]) flagship facility is being built in Amesbury, Massachusetts, and will be home to the local Munters workforce.

Responding to growing market demand for the precision temperature and humidity control solutions that Munters provides – driven by expansive electrification and digitalization trends – this facility will significantly increase capacity, offer improved workflows, and support the delivery of higher levels of customer service in Munters’ target markets.

Henrik Teiwik, president, Business Area AirTech, said Munters is making important investment in its global footprint.

“Our dedication to providing outstanding customer experiences with our core dehumidification products, solutions and services in the Americas region is clear,” he said.

“The aim is to be fully operational at the new site in early 2025. The facility is being designed to support Munters’ goal of being net zero by 2030, with the electrification of processes and equipment, implementing considerable energy efficiency measures, and obtaining electricity from renewable energy sources.”

Andrew Cook, senior vice president Americas, Business Area AirTech, said employees will have a brand new facility with more space, better equipment and increased amenities.
