Aqua Cooling has been officially presented with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise (Innovation).
by the Queen’s representative in Hampshire, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire, Nigel Atkinson Esq.
The ceremony was attended by Aqua’s staff, all of whom were praised for their team effort in supporting the firm’s bid for the prestigious British mark of excellence.
One of only 24 Innovation award winners, the engineering firm, which has an office in York, received the UK’s highest accolade for business success for its revolutionary Leak Prevention System (LPS), a patented technology which has revolutionised cooling methods in many data centres and server rooms around the world.
Sales director and inventor of the LPS technology Simon Davis said: “It is the ultimate seal of approval and a real boost as we strive to break into new export markets and industry sectors.
“Being recognised as one of Britain’s best businesses would not have been possible without the inventiveness, commitment and hard work of everyone at Aqua Cooling and together we are determined to remain at the forefront of innovation.”
The Leak Prevention System enables computer data centres and server rooms to benefit from water-cooled data cabinets with guaranteed leak-free operation. Lowering costs and businesses carbon footprint, this is the first time the negative-pressure principle has been used commercially in the data room sector.
