K2 Data Centre Dublin 1

Dublin

Value: €106m

Services Provided: Project Management, Construction Management, Planning, Commissioning & Document Control

 

MiCiM was appointed by K2 as Construction Manager and Commissioning Manager to complete and deliver phases 2 and 3 of this €106m, 22MW facility for a global software provider, following the departure from the project of the previous design and build contractor. Our works involved scoping the remaining works and re-contracting with trade contractors to complete the installation, commissioning and hand over of the project. MiCiM managed the programme, substantiation of the trade contractor costs, quality and commissioning of the project for sign off by the independent commissioning agents. The building houses three 4MW Data Halls, and three 2MW halls.

Each cabinet was supplied with an A&B power supply from independent A&B bus-bars which in turn received and A&B supply from independent UPS systems. The IT UPS systems were in an N+1 plus N+1 configuration supported by N+1 MV Generators. The Data Centre cooling systems were designed on direct air, using free cooling air with refrigerant back up for peak loads in an N+1 configuration. The Utility power was unavailable for the commissioning of phase two which was completed with Gas generation in lieu of the utility power, the whole building was then commissioned onto utility power during the completion of phase 3.
