QCooling Co-Founder and Director, Simon Davis, has been explaining to employees whilst on a recent trip to California, his pride at meeting HM The Queen in London.
Simon, inventor of QCooling’s patented Leak Prevention System (LPS) was honoured at a Buckingham Palace reception when the product was awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation in 2015.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is recognised as the UK’s most prestigious business honour and recipients are invited to a champagne reception event in the magnificent Throne Room at Buckingham Palace.
Guests were joined by HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of York and the Princess Royal.
“An evening at Buckingham Palace has to rank as one of the most amazing times of my life”, explained Simon Davis. “Standing in the receiving line, about to be greeted by The Queen and also the Duke of Edinburgh was such an honour and something I shall always remember.”
The Leak Prevention System (LPS) uses ground breaking technology to revolutionise data centre cooling techniques. In essence, it enables server rooms and computer data centres to utilise water cooled products with a 100% guarantee of continuous, leak free operation.
This has real benefits on numerous levels, from efficiency and energy savings to minimising investment in real estate and technology infrastructure - For further details on the QCooling LPS click here
Simon was awarded one of only 24 Innovation accolades. The actual Queen’s Award, an engraved crystal bowl, was officially presented to Simon Davis by the Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire, Mr Nigel Atkinson Esq, in a separate ceremony in the UK.
Simon explained to staff that, whilst the official celebrations are now over, clients will be reaping the benefits of the innovative LPS for years to come:
“Our talented engineers love nothing more than to resolve the specific issues encountered by their customers, and to present them with watertight – or airtight – solutions. With the imaginative use of a fundamental scientific process, the LPS can revolutionise the data centre cooling marketplace.”
