About Us

Why Submer makes sense

Submer is an idea born in 2015 from two brilliant and original minds, Daniel Pope and Pol Valls, to make operating and constructing datacenters more sustainable and efficient. That idea still remains to this day, as the main driver of the Company:

"We enable next generation cooling and automation for data & energy-intense environments by integrating our pristine, highly-efficient & sustainable technologies. Solving the challenges of today and powering the use cases of the future."

Submer helps enable datacenters that make sense through products, platforms, APIs, processes and installations that will move hyperscalers, colocation and huge industries to new levels of efficiency and innovation.
