VIRTUS Stockley Park Campus: Bouygues to build second data center on Virtus' London campus

Nov 27, 2019 | Posted by editor

The French contractor, Bouygues Energies & Services Contracting, has been selected by VIRTUS Data Centres for the delivery of its LONDON6 data centre, located in Stockley Park and the second data centre in its hyper scale campus.

Bouygues Energies & Services Contracting will be responsible for the design, build, electrical and mechanical services and commissioning of the data centre, which will be delivered on a phased basis.

The TIER III data centre will be built with an overall floor area of 14,000 m² including 7,000 m² of technical IT data space. When fully deployed the facility will offer 16MW of critical IT load using state-of-the-art technologies to cater to high-density customer requirements. It will deploy market-leading cooling supplied by high efficiency chilled water cooling and air containment at the rack level, which will significantly decrease energy and water consumption compared to the typical performance of a data centre of this size. 

The facility will consist of 6Nr self-contained data halls, all eco-efficiently designed and capable of subdivision for maximum flexibility from a rack in a shared space, to their own suite or data hall, each with its own dedicated power and innovative cooling systems. 

The data centre will be built in a modular fashion with some data halls live and online as early as March 2020. This approach allows VIRTUS’ customers to be involved in the design specification and scale up as they grow. Full completion of the facility is scheduled for November 2020.

Steven Weir, Managing Director of Bouygues Energies & Services Contracting stated: “Following on from the successful completion of LONDON5, we are really pleased to secure this exciting project and continue our excellent relationship with VIRTUS, a market leader in colocation and wholesale data centre facilities.”

With over twenty data centres designed and built in France, the United Kingdom and Asia, Bouygues Energies & Services Contracting is a major market player offering a turnkey solution and a high-level of expertise delivering the world’s largest data storage companies. 

In the era of cloud computing, Bouygues Energies & Services Contracting is well placed to meet the critical challenges of secure and reliable data storage while improving data centre energy performance.
