Bouygues Construction subsidiary Bouygues Energies & Services has bagged a contract worth about €100M from Baylite Company for the delivery of a data centre in Dublin, Ireland.
The firm will be responsible for the design, construction and commissioning of the data centre.
The facility will be built within an existing warehouse with 11,000 sq m of floor space that includes 5,200 sq m of TIER III technical data space across two floors.
The centre will feature six self-contained data halls, each equipped with its own power and cooling systems. It will incorporate a fresh-air, evaporative cooling technology to lower energy and water usage.
Jean-Christophe Perraud, Bouygues Energies & Services’ CEO, said: “This latest project reinforces the position of Bouygues Energies & Services as a European market leader capable of meeting the challenges of reliability, security and modularity required by its customers, while at the same time delivering data centres with reduced environmental impact.”
Phase one of the data centre is expected to be handed over in June 2017, with completion anticipated in January 2018.
