VIR for Leonardo

VIR proudly supplied its valves for the Leonardo supercomputer, the fourth most powerful computer in the world. Located at the Tecnopolo, in the heart of Bologna’s mechanical hub, the supercomputer is capable of performing millions of billions of operations per second and is considered as an infrastructure per se. Leonardo processes weather forecasts and climate studies, but also of projects in the field of materials physics and fluid dynamics. Leonardo’s energy efficiency is achieved through a direct circulating liquid cooling system residing on top of the computing motherboards. That’s where VIR valves came into play: this cooling allows 95% of the heat dissipated inside the rack to be extracted and reused for different purposes.
