A 350,000 square foot, 30 megawatt, facility in Hemel Hempstead which is scheduled to come on line from spring 2015.
The development, which also includes 75,000 square feet of office space, will regenerate the site known as ‘The Campus’ on Maylands Avenue.
Green technology is a major focus of the design with features such as end wall injection air conditioning, water-side economisation and chimney racks to expel heat putting it among the most energy efficient data centres in the UK. As well as being designed to BREEAM excellent standards, it will have a power usage effectiveness (PUE) of under 1.2.
The centre, known as ‘The Campus’, will also be the first large-scale, commercial colocation data centre in the UK to offer the option of a chillerless cooling system providing 30 per cent more energy capacity for ICT systems.
