Site & Power DK announce successful completion of Gulf Data Hub ICAD III in Abu Dhabi
New Data Center, delivered on time, promises to transform regional cloud provision for businesses
Site & Power DK have announced successful completion of the Gulf Data Hub ICAD III in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The occasion was marked by the award of a certificate from Gulf Data Hub to Site & Power DK.
The major project began in July 2021 and was completed on time, involving the full project team at Site & Power DK at different times throughout the enterprise. The company provided a range of services and solutions to develop and deliver the project: the Data Center MEP works included engineering, supply, installation, five levels of testing and commissioning, Uptime TCDD and Uptime TCCF Tier III certification.
The completed Gulf Data Hub is a co-location Data Center facility at ICAD, Mussafah. The initial build is for a 6500 sq meters Data Center Wide Space, comprising up to 18,000 sq meters built-up area on a 32,000 sq meter plot. Power density is 2.5 kW per sq meter with the infrastructure delivering up to 15kW per rack.
The new Data Center promises to transform regional provision for businesses. M/s GDH, the Data Center owner, has become one of the largest hyperscale Data Center providers serving the needs of hosting for many leading international cloud companies.
Winning the project was a significant gain for Site & Power DK. According to a company spokesperson, SDK was chosen because it is known in the market for its unmatched technical expertise, the ability to quickly deploy solutions enabling the quickest return on capital, its capacity to reliably meet deliverables targets, and the ability to offer the most competitive value proposition. While the Gulf Data Hub project was ongoing, the company also managed two other similar projects, with one of those also completed and one still under construction.
“Thanks must go to everyone in the team who worked on this project. Their hard work enabled us to deliver the project on time and to specifications. Thanks, also, to M/s Gulf Data Hub team for trusting Site & Power DK and giving us this valuable opportunity” said the management of Site & Power DK.
