deutherm on course for success
deutherm enjoyed a very successful first half of 2019. We recorded a 42% jump in sales compared with the same period last year, with incoming orders growing by 45%. Demand for the latest generation of mobile cooling systems was particularly high.
So far deutherm has been active in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary – a total market of 230 million mobile service users. New framework agreements with the big players in the mobile communications sector are now extending our presence to another 17 countries. Albania, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Kosovo, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Moldavia, Montenegro, Netherlands, North Macedonia, Romania, San Marino, Serbia and Slovenia represent another 190 million mobile service users whose infrastructure will be cooled with deutherm technology in future.
Swisscom relies on deutherm technology
The Swiss telecommunications market leader Swisscom recently opted for the energy-efficient deutherm cooling solutions. The press release stated:
"Swisscom wants to increase energy efficiency by 30 per cent by the end of 2020. The "Levante" project represents another milestone for Swisscom in its bid to lower electricity consumption. Flexibox – a product made by deutherm – is the equipment chosen by Swisscom to cool its technical infrastructure in mobile base stations by using external air instead of air conditioning systems. This makes it possible to reduce the consumption of electricity for cooling by around 90 per cent. Swisscom has fitted the new system in around 20 stations so far, with another 460 set to follow. These retrofits will enable Swisscom to save approximately 3.5 GWh of electricity annually. This equates to the consumption of around 800 households. It also does away with the need for cooling agents which are harmful to the environment. The "Levante" project will not only be kind to the environment, however: as well as saving on energy costs, doing without expensive air conditioning systems will also lower maintenance costs. (...)
