Mavin, a UK-based IT services firm has announced it will install a Powercube data center at the Global Centre of Rail Excellence (GRCE) in Onllwyn, South Wales.

“We are delighted to agree this partnership with Mavin and to utilize their cutting-edge Powercube design at the Global Centre of Rail Excellence site,” said GCRE Limited chief executive, Simon Jones. “The ambition is to establish GCRE as Europe’s premier site for rail innovation, becoming a one-stop shop for the rail sector, serving markets not just in the UK but across Europe and the Middle East. In providing world-class research and testing facilities, it's important that the supporting infrastructure that we have on-site is of the highest quality – and is as forward-looking as the innovation we will be doing on our tracks."

Mavin founder and Powercube director, Russ Bartley, added: “We are extremely proud to be involved with this pivotal project from the start, and are looking forward to strengthening the partnership with GCRE over the next few years, as opportunities for broader engagement with GCRE and other critical industries allow us to evolve our solutions to meet the demands of the future."
