Precision Liquid Cooling

Under the MOU, SKT, Iceotope, and SK Enmove will collaborate to deploy Precision Liquid Cooling using SK Enmove's thermal fluid at SKT's AI Data Center Testbed. The deployment aims to demonstrate PLC's value in cooling efficiency and power savings.

Iceotope's Precision Liquid Cooling (PLC) technology utilizes precise delivery of dielectric fluid to remove heat from the server's hottest components, significantly reducing energy consumption.

As part of the agreement, SKT will also develop an integrated Coolant Distribution Unit (CDU) to support various liquid cooling systems with technical support from Iceotope.

Traditional data center hardware cooling, utilizing the air conditioning and cooling systems, consumes the largest amount of energy. To achieve an energy-efficient AI data center, reducing the power consumption of these systems is essential, said the official release.

Autonomous Cooling System

SKT also plans to develop an AI-based autonomous cooling system. This system will analyze temperature and power load in the AI data center, automatically controlling the supply temperature and flow rate of thermal fluids in the CDUs to enhance operational efficiency.

"By combining core technologies and capabilities of SKT, Iceotope and SK Enmove, we expect to develop innovative energy efficiency solutions that can not only help us strengthen our competitiveness in AI data centers, but also put us on the right path towards sustainability," said SK Telecom.
