  • Location

  • Client

    Noveus

  • Contract

    Electricity supply

  • Background

    Kao Data were planning to open a new high performance data centre in the heart of the UK Innovation Corridor. The new facility would provide its HPC, Cloud, AI and Enterprise customers with a world-class
    home.

  • Our Brief

    Our long-standing client Noveus, contracted our services to bring this development to life with an
    electrical supply as follows:

    Electricity
    • Design and installation of a new 43.5MVA electrical supply
    • Installation of three new 33kV cables along a 5.1km excavation route
    • Provision of a three transformer Primary Substation building with three UKPN specification panel boards and space provision for a customer 11kV panel board.

  • How we delivered

    The cabling route took us past a large new roundabout. Due to a new road surface having been laid, we weren’t able to excavate so instead undertook a significant directional drill to successfully continue our path. But, we engaged fully with our Client’s electrical design team throughout the project and delivered the contract on time and on budget to our Client’s complete satisfaction.
