Keysource scoops top award for Jaguar Land Rover facility

May 13, 2016 10:51:19 AM

It may be a sunny Friday morning, but there is another reason why the Keysource team are celebrating after we secured a top industry award last night. Keysource triumphantly took home the trophy for New Design/Build Data Centre Project of the Year at the 2016 DCS Awards.

We scooped the award for the delivery of a new external modular data centre for Jaguar Land Rover at the company’s site in Wolverhampton. The facility delivers 1,100 square feet of data centre space and hosts storage data and processing power for the systems driving Jaguar Land Rover’s new Engine Manufacturing Centre. The core data centre module houses up to 30 racks with a capacity of 320kW, whilst the power module is based offsite to ensure easy onsite integration and scalability as the load increases. In addition, the facility features innovative air-to-air cooling systems and boasts a PUEL2YC of better than 1.2.

The gala ceremony - held at Grange St Paul’s Hotel in London – provided the perfect opportunity to catch up with old friends before the winners were revealed, with our CEO Mike West taking to the stage to collect the trophy!

Commenting on the evening, Mike said:

We are absolutely delighted to have secured this leading award in such a prestigious category. The success of the Jaguar Land Rover project is testimony to the hard work and ongoing dedication of the entire Keysource team, who delivered this fantastic and truly innovative facility on-time and to budget.
