Lasercharm has announced the launch of the first 3,750 sq m of net technical space at the 65,000 sq m Camro data centre park on a 45 acre site near to Cambridge. The scheme has already secured planning permission and all the vital energy and high volume fibre routing is agreed. Data space will be available in six months.
Camro, which is located on the Elean Business Park in Sutton, just to the north of Cambridge, is at the hub of the city’s centre of excellence for high-tech businesses and science and technology industries. It is a new-generation data centre on a secure and landscaped site with its own energy centre, offices, infrastructure and car parking.
To fully exploit its strategic location, Lasercharm has commissioned open access diverse fibre routing to provide a dark fibre network to London’s major connection points and also to the North and South. Cambridge
Camro has been designed with two power sources. Under a power agreement with UK Power Networks 25MVA is being brought to the site in a phased intallation. Ultimately, the primary power source will be the on-site energy centre utilising combined heat and power technology, achieving one of the most efficient and cost effective data centre sites in Europe with a PUE of 1.1. The energy centre will use waste heat rejected to provide green cooling. The energy centre will be to N+2 standard supported by the 25MVA grid supply.
