Bouygues Energies & Services will be responsible for design, construction and commissioning of the data centre, which will be delivered on a phased basis. 

Jean-Christophe Perraud, CEO of Bouygues Energies & Services, said: “We are proud to have been selected to build this major data centre in Ireland. 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.”

The data centre will be built within an existing warehouse with overall floor area of 11,000 m2 including 5,200 m2 of TIER III technical data space across two storeys. The facility will offer 22 MW of critical IT load using state-of-the-art technologies to cater to high-density customer requirements. It will deploy a market-leading fresh-air, evaporative cooling technology, which will significantly decrease energy and water consumption compared to the typical performance of a data centre on this size. 

The facility will consist of six self-contained data halls, all capable of subdivision for maximum flexibility, each with its own dedicated power and cooling systems. The first phase of the data centre will be handed over in June 2017, with completion scheduled for January 2018.

With over twenty data centres designed and built in France, the United Kingdom and Asia, Bouygues Energies & Services is a major market player offering turnkey projects and high-level expertise honed alongside the world’s largest data storage companies. In the era of cloud computing, Bouygues Energies & Services is well placed to meet the critical challenges arising out of secure and reliable data storage while improving data centre energy performance.
