Teledata has appointed Keysource as lead contractor for its new MCR2 facility, backed by funding from investment company UBS.
Keysource will be responsible for delivering on sustainability goals set out by a ‘whole life carbon’ calculation of the facility and a stage 2 carbon assessment. Using existing planning permission, the project will be a combined design and planning application to ensure the integration of local regeneration goals.
Keysource has said it will also utilise computational fluid dynamics (CFD) in the design process, ensuring that the available site power capacity and available space to increase rack count capacity is maximised, providing annualised PUE of less than 1.15 for this.
Jon Healy, Operations Director at Keysource, said, “To support the major regeneration of the area this an opportunity to deliver a data centre which can differentiate itself within a competitive market through site architecture and design which delivers a high quality and commercially competitive services, whilst delivering local, company and funder ESG goals. This forms the basis of our approach.”
Matt Edgley at Teledata, added, “At Teledata we are committed to delivering the highest levels of service and support and the quality of our data centre estate is absolutely key. This new facility will be best in class in terms of resilience, security and sustainability and we know that we can rely on Keysource to deliver this.”
Teledata was acquired by Datum Datacentres in September 2022, which was itself acquired by funds managed by the UBS Asset Management Real Estate & Private Markets business (REPM) in September 2021.
