Japan’s ENEOS joins GRC’s ElectroSafe® Fluid Partner Program

GRC® (Green Revolution Cooling®), the global leader in immersion cooling for data centers, announced that ENEOS, Japan’s largest lubricant company, has joined GRC’s ElectroSafe® Fluid Partner Program.

With the validation of ENEOS’ immersion cooling fluids, GRC will not only have additional, globally available fluids, but also a forum for the two companies to continue to collaboratively develop and leverage new fluid formulations and advancements.

With ENEOS’ participation in the ElectroSafe Fluid Partner Program, GRC and its customers will benefit from ENEOS’ vast technical expertise accumulated over decades of lubricant development.

“ENEOS is excited to be part of GRC’s important initiative to strengthen fluid performance and efficiency for data center liquid immersion cooling,” said Toru Konishi, president of ENEOS Lubricants Company. “GRC’s validation of our immersion cooling fluids will allow data center users to operate systems more safely and confidently while increasing efficiency. Additionally, we will help enable safer fluid operation and add value to the broader data center ecosystem by studying and advancing fluid development together with GRC.”

“GRC and ENEOS have been collaborating for several years, and we look forward to expanding and strengthening our relationship through their participation in GRC’s ElectroSafe Fluid Partner Program,” said Ben Smith, chief product officer at GRC. “ENEOS and GRC will be able to offer additional fluid options to data centers globally while also continuing to work together to improve existing fluids and develop new formulations that improve operational uptime and efficiency.”

The ElectroSafe Fluid Partner Program evaluates and validates dielectric fluids designed for use in GRC’s immersion cooling systems, ensuring globally available, environmentally responsible solutions that not only meet material compatibility, performance, and safety, but also ensure that they meet customer expectations for improved data center energy efficiency, cooling capacity, and reliability.

With the adoption of immersion cooling accelerating, new fluid formulations continue to be introduced to the market, and it’s paramount that data center end-users have the trust and confidence that the fluids they’re using meet rigorous standards. In addition to enhancing data center performance, all fluids included in the program will contribute to achieving our customers’ various ESG goals.
