ROK Electrical Ltd are very proud to be involved with the Electrical Installation on a new 212 metre data centre. The data centre market in London is continuing to grow at a frenetic pace, with the announcement of this giant data centre being constructed in East London.
Full planning permission has been obtained and work has begun on the new data centre campus that is to be located in Dagenham, East London.
The new campus will be capable of up to 24,000 square metres of IT space and 60MW IT load once fully developed, wielding the aptly-named handle of ‘UK London 1 Data Centre.
Construction is well on its way with phase one (an initial 8MW IT load) expected to be complete and operational by December next year – there are five further phases.
The companies assert scalable connectivity and fibre infrastructure is being added to the site that is located within 15 kilometres of the London Docklands, offering diverse dark fibre routes to London’s key internet exchange sites.
The new facility will be connected to the five existing data centres in Hemel, Hempstead, and Slough, offering a networked London operating platform of considerable capacity with the ability to support over 100MW of IT load.
