NEC Corporation, through its subsidiary NEC Fielding, will deploy Asetek RackCDU Direct-to-Chip liquid cooling at a new HPC (High Performance Computing) installation in Japan.

Asetek has already begun to make shipments in support of this installation.

This follows the announcement of an undisclosed OEM partner on September 7th, 2017.

“Adding OEMs has been a key goal for our datacenter business and it is particularly satisfying to add another significant OEM to our portfolio of customers,” André Sloth Eriksen, Asetek CEO and founder said at the time.

“This order confirms our ability to leverage our leading position in the HPC segment to attract new customers as well as end-users.”

“We are pleased to work with NEC on this project and look forward to further collaboration in the future,” says John Hamill, Asetek Chief Operating Officer.

“Partnering with leading OEMs such as NEC is a cornerstone of our strategy to develop the emerging data center market.”   

NEC Corporation provides a combination of products and solutions that cross utilize the company's experience and global resources.
