Keysource has completed the latest critical upgrade of a live Data Centre in Essex, East London as part of a national project designed to increase the capacity and resilience across the client’s estate of Critical National Infrastructure.
It was completed under the terms of the national framework agreement which sees Keysource responsible for designing and project managing the upgrade of the live infrastructure at a number of UK sites.
The critical upgrade was completed in a live environment working around existing services, where it was critical to undertake in depth planning and use trusted engineers to complete the works.
The Teleco Data Centres are essential hubs in today’s data driven world, across the UK facilitating the nation’s access to the internet with each Telco Data Centre supporting tens of thousands of local users.
It included demolition, construction of new rooms, cooling, electrical and BMS systems.
This project also included complex project planning to allow for planning permission, surveys, strip out, construction, and installation of switchgear, UPS and power systems within the live environment.
Keysource’s experience with the new LV and HV DC systems was a requirement of the project.
