Colt DCS, a company which provides hyperscale and large enterprise data center solutions,  is set to double the size of its planned data center campus in Hayes, West London, after acquiring a fresh parcel of land.

A Colt DCS statement said: “This will make the entire site one of the largest in the UK and will be Colt DCS' largest multi-building data centre campus across its global estate. Along with the purchase of land, Colt DCS has crucially also secured power, based on renewable energy, to deliver the capacity required for the new site. Colt DCS' expanded campus will be perfectly suited to support the growing demand for capacity of large-scale, high-density AI workloads.”

Richard Wellbrock, chief commercial officer at Colt DCS, said: "There is continued strong demand from customers for UK-based hyperscale data centres, driven by continued growth in demand for digital services. To cater for the fast-paced world of digital services, customers require scale in their data centre solutions. We are also excited to learn about the UK Government's plans to take the digital economy to the next level in the global marketplace, and our expansion in Hayes will increase the UK's capacity and capability in creating a vibrant environment for growth.”
