London, December 13th, 2018
SPIE UK has been awarded a multi-million pound contract with Next Generation Data (NGD), operators of the largest tier 3+ data centre in Europe, for the design and installation of three new data halls with associated power trains. The works form part of NGD’s recent multi-million-pound investment into the further development of its world class facility and the latest expansion phase of an additional 250,000 sq. ft of capacity.
As Principal Contractor and NGD’s engineering team partner, SPIE will be responsible for the design, installation, testing and commissioning of white space fit-out to provide three data halls, each with more than 400 racks inside them. These data halls each include A&B plant areas, dual power trains, generator backup, 3.0MW of available critical power, 3MW critical cooling and a data centre management system, in line with SPIE’s smart solutions offering. This is in addition to a data hall delivered by SPIE earlier this year to similar specifications.
SPIE UK has been Principal Contractor on all phases of development at the South Wales data centre, working alongside NGD for almost a decade to plan, design and install data halls to suit the evolving facility and growing customer base. SPIE brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the data centre sector, as well as sharing its client’s drive towards sustainable development. Both firms are committed to delivering state-of-the-art solutions that incorporate appropriate technology to benefit the end user.
Steve Farmer, Divisional Managing Director at SPIE UK, said, “We are delighted to be continuing our long and successful relationship with this high-profile client. Our team’s extensive expertise will ensure that NGD’s latest expansion will be delivered within an industry-leading timescale and to the highest standards. SPIE look forward to continuing to support NGD to grow and develop secure, flexible data centre solutions for their end user customers.”
Simon Bearne, Commercial Director for NGD, added, “As our long-term trusted advisor, SPIE provides NGD with an outstanding service. As business demand for our facilities grows exponentially, we value them as a reliable partner who can help us take our leading facility to the next level.”
