After we put the first data center and its extension into operation at the Bettembourg location, the course was set in January 2009 for the construction of a new datacenter placed in the north of Luxembourg.

As the joint venture ZWP Ingenieur-AG/Goblet Lavandier & Associés in the DC1 project convinced the client Luxconnect S.A., we were also awarded the planning contract for DC2, with a completion date in April 2012 for the first construction phase. The building is divided into a front administration wing with approx. 1,300 m² (basement to 2nd floor), a data center construction phase 1 with approx. 12,600 m² and in construction phase 2 with approx. 6,800 m². A total of 14 server rooms between 326 m² and 217 m² are designed as TIER II to TIER IV rooms. Due to the dependency of the occupancy status, the realization was divided into two construction phases, whereby only 6 server rooms as well as the administration were built in phase 1. In general, only systems with a high efficiency are used, such as among others, chillers with a COP > 10 and up to 99% for the scalable UPS systems (Emerson Network Power, Trinergy).
