Colt Data Centre Services break ground on new London 4 Data Centre in Hayes.
Colt Data Centre Services (Colt DCS), a leading provider of global hyperscale data centre solutions, has commenced with the construction of its next hyperscale data centre with a ground-breaking ceremony in London to celebrate the latest project milestone.
The London 4 Data Centre development located in Hayes, West London, will include two state of the art data centre buildings and significant enhancements to landscaping that will revitalise the site and adjacent area. These facilities will provide 57MW of IT power and will mark Colt DCS’ third and fourth hyperscale data centres in the London vicinity that can support the requirements of large enterprises and cloud service providers. In addition, there is further land on the site to develop a third 30MW IT power data centre.
Protecting against climate change is at the core of Colt DCS’ industry-leading sustainability approach. The data centre buildings at Hayes will include a range of measures to ensure high levels of sustainability such as the use of 100% renewable energy, heat pump technology, and back-up biodiesel powered generators.
London 4 Data Centre will provide a major boost to the local economy through the creation of around 230 permanent jobs, 350 constructions jobs and 50 apprenticeships. Colt DCS is committed to delivering ongoing social value in the surrounding area by working with local schools to create an understanding of, and pathway to, jobs in the technology sector.
“We are extremely excited to announce the ground-breaking of our newest data centre in London. We worked closely with the local community and stakeholders through the planning process to intricately shape all aspects of this development, to outline the economic benefits it will bring, and to explain the critical role that data centres play in all of our daily lives and most importantly what opportunities this brings for the local communities.”
“Colt DCS will operate the data centre once it is complete, we very much see ourselves as part of the local community. That’s why we wanted to share this significant moment with all the key stakeholders we have worked with along the way, including local schools and other neighbours with whom we are building long term partnerships to deliver social value in the area. This is truly an exciting journey for us all.”
