VANCOUVER, May 19 /CNW/ - Smartcool Systems Inc. (TSX-V: SSC) has launched a 1.8 million dollar roll out of its energy efficiency technology into twenty-five Colt facilities in Western Europe. The project is expected to save Colt Telecom an estimated 7,400,000kWh every year resulting in a payback in less than two years enabling Colt to progress its tough reduction targets while providing significant financial returns.
"Our European team has worked hard to secure this major deal, building on their previous multi-site experience with other major clients like Sainsbury's in the UK and Telefonica in Spain," explains George Burnes, President and CEO of Smartcool. "This cross border roll-out further demonstrates Smartcool's growth and strength as a leader in the energy efficiency industry. Not only do we have a superior solution to offer, but we also have the proven capability to deliver effectively to our customers around the globe."
The roll out will see Smartcool's ESM(TM) and ECO(3)(TM) installed in all of Colt's 19 data centers and an additional six corporate facilities across the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Spain, France, Italy and Switzerland. In addition to taking a major bite out of Colt's energy bills, Smartcool's roll out will help the company cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 9,981,670 lbs or 4,527,500 kg.
"We have made a commitment to improve the energy efficiency of our data centers by 10% in 2010. Smartcool is helping us reach this goal by reducing the energy required to maintain ideal operating temperatures in these facilities," comments Steve Lamb at Colt. "The associated cut in greenhouse gas emissions is also helping us achieve our goals under our Carbon Reduction Campaign."
