UK firm Secure I.T. Environments has delivered a containerized data center to Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (NNUH).

The company this week announced the handover of its latest ModCel Containerised data center project to the trust in Norwich, which comprised of two units each measuring 10 m x 3.1 m, supporting a total of 14 19 in cabinets on delivery, with additional capacity available for future needs.

The project was completely designed and built off-site during the Covid-19 pandemic with no in-person site visits taking place before delivery. The project was completed in its 90-day planned schedule and NNUH has retained Secure I.T. on a five-year maintenance contract for the data centre.

The container includes air conditioning in 2N redundancy configuration, modular UPS and electrical infrastructure in 2N configuration, NOVEC 1230 fire detection and gas extraction systems, raised access floor, intelligent PDUs, CCTV, access control and fire doors.

Chris Wellfair, projects director at Secure I.T. Environments, said: “This project really demonstrates all the strengths of our project teams and the ModCel containerised technology. We were able to design and build this data centre with no visits prior to installation. But you can only do that with a strong and close client relationship, our partnership with NNUH was critical to making this project a success, especially given the restrictions in place during that point in the Covid-19 pandemic.”
