Computational Fluid Dynamics Expert Wirth Research Turns to Verne Global to Go Carbon Zero. The move enables Wirth Research to analyse, optimise and verify the performance of designs for its industry customers with zero carbon cost.
Founded in 2012, our Icelandic data center campus powers some of the world’s most innovative and demanding industries, including financial services, earth sciences, life sciences, engineering, scientific research and AI.
Founded by esteemed motorsport designer and former youngest-ever Fellow of the Royal Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Nick Wirth, Wirth Research’s mission is to make life more enjoyable and more sustainable through technology. They are able to make buildings better to live, work and shop in; to make vehicles more energy-efficient; and do all of this while providing our clients with a compelling return on their investment.
Their products include the EcoBlade™ – a twin-bladed strip fitted to the front of fridge shelves to reduce cold air being lost into the aisles, using the same techniques that channel airflow more efficiently around racing cars to enable them to corner at higher speeds. And the AirDoor, a mechatronic archway situated at a building’s entrance which uses an active, targeted airflow to improve internal comfort whilst also improving the building’s energy efficiency.
Wirth Research also specialises in the research, design and manufacture of cutting-edge engineering solutions. Recent projects have included Apple Inc.’s corporate headquarters, Apple Park in California, central London skyscraper 22 Bishopsgate and the award-winning Bloomberg European HQ – the world’s most sustainable office building – as well as helping multiple supermarket chains to substantially reduce their store energy usage and CO2 emissions.
