Vertiv opens a new manufacturing facility in Pune

The company supports Make in India efforts with the third manufacturing facility in the country. The factor behind establishing our third manufacturing facility in India is the country’s growing emergence as a data centre hub within the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

From (L to R) – Subhasis Majumdar, Managing Director, Vertiv India, Giordano Albertazzi, CEO, Vertiv and David Fallon, Chief Financial Officer, Vertiv.

With a new manufacturing plant in Chakan, Pune, Vertiv is ready to meet India’s rising demand for data centres and infrastructure solutions. This facility manufactures thermal management products and solutions tailored for data centres, telecom, and commercial and industrial applications, catering to domestic and international markets. It complements existing manufacturing facilities in Ambernath and Pune.

Covering an extensive area of 210,000 square feet (19,510 square meters), the facility supports the production of cooling solutions with a capacity spanning from 200W to 2MW+. This includes various products such as adiabatic free cooling chillers, sizable custom air handling units (AHU), thermal wall units, a fresh line of large direct expansion (DX) systems, packaged DX units, and free cooling with economiser units. Additionally, it introduces a new series of in-row cooling units, wall mount units, and rack cooling systems.

The facility also boasts state-of-the-art psychometric labs for performance testing, a dedicated customer experience centre, and design support capabilities. It is situated in an India Green Building Council (IGBC) compliant park that focuses on sustainability, thus reducing impact on the environment.

Vertiv CEO Giordano (Gio) Albertazzi said, “With increasing global digitalisation and the rapid adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI), the data centre industry is experiencing growth and a demand for more capacity, including for data centre thermal and power infrastructure. India’s emergence as a data centre hub in the APAC region is a key reason that we built this third manufacturing facility in India, and it reinforces our commitment to nurturing the country’s data centre ecosystem while also addressing global demand.”

Subhasis Majumdar, Managing Director, Vertiv India, said, “India is witnessing significant investments in the data centre industry by both domestic and global players. With its state-of-the-art infrastructure, our new plant will help us provide more thermal management capacity, improve lead times, and enhance our ability to deliver tailor-made, large, and complex solutions. In addition to the global offerings, Vertiv will align solutions with India’s unique environmental and infrastructural needs, enabling optimal performance and reliability. The new facility also helps Vertiv continue its support of the Make in India initiative.”

As per a JLL report, India’s data centre sector is poised for a substantial 678 MW growth over the next three years, projecting a capacity of 1400 MW by 2025. This positions the nation as the 13th largest market globally. Additionally, India Briefing has reported that 45 new data centres collectively spanning 13 million square feet with 1,015 MW capacities are scheduled for development by 2025, forecasted to drive the industry to a size of $9.27 billion by 2027.
