Takanini datacentre on track to finish in October: Gen-i

Lloyd Selby-Brown, Gen-i’s head of infrastructure, said the project is now entering its most intensive stage with around 150 workers active on the site fitting out the centre’s electrical and mechanical systems.

Gen-i has stated that the company's new Tier 3 datacentre, built along with Revera and currently under construction in Takanini, is on track for completion in early October 2014.

The $60 million dollar datacentre is being delivered via a development agreement with Retail Holdings, who have engaged Hawkins Construction and AECOM to design and build the facility.

According to Gen-i, the new high resiliency data centre will add considerable momentum to the long-term growth strategies of both Gen-i and Revera, as the two companies meet increased demand from clients.

Lloyd Selby-Brown, Gen-i’s head of infrastructure, said the project is now entering its most intensive stage with around 150 workers active on the site fitting out the centre’s electrical and mechanical systems.

“To give some perspective on the scale of the progress, there is currently 1400m2 of anti-static data rack space provided initially, which will grow to 4200m2 overall in three pods at completion,” he said.

“The site will have 4MW of initial electrical capacity expanding up to 20MW in later phases. Over 960 industrial batteries are used for the initial power arrangement, which will grow to 5760 in the final arrangement.

“This building also includes a first for any New Zealand data centre, as it features an innovative Kiwi-designed base isolation bearing system in place to support the main structure, which will maximise its resiliency,” said Selby-Brown.
