Based in Keyworth, 4energy provides environmentally friendly cooling devices for use on equipment in telecommunication networks and data centres. The Grant for Research and Development (GRD) has helped the company develop a system with no moving parts to cool back-up batteries.
The company expects to grow fourfold in 2009 and hopes to add to its existing 32 employees over the next 18 months. Following completion of the project, 4energy claims that it has secured contracts with multinational mobile phone operators, transport networks and power companies.
Pat Tindale, managing director of 4energy, said: ‘Trying to look at how we can cool electronic equipment in new ways is what we are about. The GRD grant we received from emda enabled us to up the pace of our development and expand into new markets when we were a young, vulnerable business.’
Trials for the new system are currently underway in
