KUALA LUMPUR, June 12 (Bernama) -- Petronas Lubricants International is collaborating with UK-based Iceotope Technologies Ltd to jointly develop thermal management solutions for data centres, edge computing facilities, and blockchain operations to enhance efficiency whilst reducing carbon emissions and water usage.

Petronas Lubricants International is the global lubricants manufacturing and marketing arm of Petronas, Malaysia’s global energy group, while Iceotope is a global leader in precision liquid cooling solutions.

In a statement today, it said that leveraging both expertise and experience in thermal management, the partnership will drive research and development as well as innovation to deliver new liquid cooling technologies tailored to meet the sector’s emerging needs, in line with the ongoing advancements of the global digital infrastructure.

Petronas Lubricants International managing director and group chief executive officer Hezlinn Idris said Petronas Lubricants International and Iceotope share a common ground in liquid cooling technologies expertise. 

“Through this partnership, we will be able to offer a significant impact by enabling improved performance for the data infrastructure sector without adversely affecting the environment,” he said. 

Meanwhile, Iceotope chief executive officer David Craig said power consumption and environmental impact are top priorities for data centre operators today.

“Precision liquid cooling represents a revolutionary shift, empowering organisations to deploy information technology infrastructure without compromising performance or sustainability.

“By combining Iceotope’s expertise with Petronas’ leading-edge technology, we are not only cooling data centres; we are ensuring efficient, responsible cooling at the highest standard,” he said. 

Building upon the partnership with Iceotope, Petronas Lubricants International introduces Petronas Iona Tera, a liquid coolant specifically designed for data centres which increasingly rely on liquid cooling to maintain optimal temperatures.

An expansion of the Petronas Iona range, the new Petronas Iona Tera follows nearly two years of thermal management research and development and an extensive validation process that included evaluating different fluid chemistries and materials in laboratory conditions.

Petronas Iona was initially developed for electric vehicles, targeting three critical areas, namely the engine, gearbox, battery, and bearings.
