Ada Infrastructure has been given the go ahead to deliver a 210 MW data centre campus in East London’s Royal Docks.

Ada, which is the data centre platform of GLP Capital Partners, was awarded a resolution to grant planning from the Newham Strategic Development Committee for its flagship development in the UK.

Once fully built out, the development will offer three 70 MW data centre buildings and a community multi-purpose facility. The sites will feature air and liquid cooling systems that operate without water evaporation, and provisions for a district heating system interconnection – as well as the use of low-carbon materials in construction.

Ada has also said that the campus will be available to the local community for job training programmes.

“This new data centre development embodies our commitment to driving positive change through the use of sustainable technology and materials, a robust environmental, health and safety programme, and an ongoing investment in the communities in which we work and live,” said Jennifer Weitzel, President of Ada Infrastructure.

“In addition to collaborating with local partners to provide job training and employment opportunities, the project’s future-ready design, including energy-efficient systems, net positive landscaping, and strict physical and cybersecurity protocols, will set new standards for safe and sustainable development in the age of AI.”

Nick Cook, President, GCP Europe, added, “We are delighted to see our vision for a large-scale data centre come to life at Docklands. We will continue to leverage our significant footprint across Europe to support the growth of our data centre and clean energy strategies.”
