In late 2022, BP Castrol enquried to Submer to create a Modular Data Centre to house 2 of their 100kW Smartpods. Submer contacted our partner SonicEdge with plans for Saradan to design and build the DC for their pods. As the site was a small tarmaced area, the Module was to be built with a staircase up to all the mechanical cooling components fitted to a custom skid on the roof.

The framework for the Module began in late July 2023 and only 6 months later the brand new custom-made Data Centre was fully built, installed and tested.

Services Included:

  • Custom Steel-framed Modular Building with personnel access door and SmartPod maintenance door.
  • Transtherm Adiabatic cooling loop on a steel skid mounted to the roof.
  • Concrete slabs groundworks to level the corners of the Module.
  • 2 x Submer 100kW SmartPods & controller board.
  • Hoist & frame to support removal of SmartPod server racks.
