Projects & Agreements ZENIUM STARTS FRANKFURT TWO BUILD Johnson Controls supplies cooling solution for state-of-the-art data centre Johnson Controls has won a significant contract to provide an innovative cooling solution at Finland’s largest open data centre being built for Telia Finland. The new facility in Helsinki will use electric energy from renewable and carbon neutral sources. Waste heat will be recycled and used in district heating network. The first phase of the facility is expected to cost between €130 and €150 million and is expected to be operational by spring 2018. Once completed the Telia data centre will be 33,500m 2 and have a 24MW IT-power capacity – meaning it will require a further eight chilling units to cool the massive ICT infrastructure in the future. The new facility is intended to satisfy growing demand for cloud, colocation and other services around the Finnish capital, where electricity is relatively inexpensive and climate is cool.

Greencore has been an Adapt client since 2014, outsourcing all of its infrastructure requirements. In November 2016, Greencore announced its acquisition of US based Peacock Foods and as a result, it needs access to local infrastructure in the United States. In August 2016, Adapt became a Datapipe company and now offers clients access to its global footprint that encompasses the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific. Greencore has taken advantage of this capability to host its latency sensitive applications, such as voice and video, in US data centres in Kansas City and New Jersey. Datapipe is now able to offer Greencore a true choice of best execution venue for its infrastructure – important now that the US comprises nearly half of Greencore’s annual sales.

Marked with a breaking ground ceremony in partnership with construction contractor, Lupp Group, Zenium has also confirmed that it has secured a pre-let contract for 7MW of power with a global IT services company. Frankfurt Two is the seventh data centre announced by Zenium in less than two years. Built directly alongside Frankfurt One, which Zenium acquired in 2015, Frankfurt Two will offer large scale data centre capacity with diverse carrier neutral connectivity to serve cloud providers, systems integrators and large enterprises. In line with Zenium’s forward thinking approach, Frankfurt Two will also offer fully customisable solutions and leading-edge energy efficiencies achieved through the use of the latest in adiabatic cooling technology which will result in uniquely low PUEs. On site support will be managed by the Zenium in- house facilities management and security teams. Located in Sossenheim, Germany’s ‘Digital City’ and home of DE-CIX, the world’s largest Internet Exchange, Frankfurt Two will deliver 17.6MW of IT power to 7,500m 2 of world-class technical space housed over five floors providing highly resilient, concurrently maintainable power and cooling to Tier 3+ standards.
