Roofing Ceremony for e-shelter Datacenter Munich 2
Frankfurt and Unterschleißheim, Germany, August 26th 2016: e-shelter, leading data center operator in Europe and an NTT Communications group company, celebrated with 170 guests, representatives from the City of Unterschleißheim and project participants the Roofing Ceremony for the e-shelter Datacenter Munich 2 yesterday.
The new Datacenter Munich 2 is built on a more than 18,000 sqm large site in Unterschleißheim. Altogether data center space of about 5,600 sqm is being developed in two building stages. The completion of the first building stage and the settling in of the first tenants is planned for December 2016.
In the presence of the second mayor from the City of Unterschleißheim, Stefan Krimmer, and Thomas Linse, construction foreman of Peter Gross Hoch- und Tiefbau, as well as Rupprecht Rittweger, CEO of e-shelter, and further guests the building shell receives its traditional topping-out tree.
"We thank the City of Unterschleißheim as well as the “Wirtschaftsförderung” of Unterschleißheim for the constructive collaboration and we are looking forward to strengthen the region with our investment," says Rupprecht Rittweger, CEO of e-shelter.
The Datacenter Munich 2 meets the highest technical and security requirements and fulfills due to cooling by groundwater the maximum energy efficiency. Our building will get its power supply at 20 kV level from two substations. Connectivity is provided by at least 10 different carriers by multiple, redundant feeds in two Carrier-Meet-Me-Rooms. This power supply and data communication infrastructure will provide the new e-shelter data center with a completely redundant connection. Not only will there be an uninterruptible power supply in the event of power failure, e.g. by diesel generators, but there will also be an uninterruptible connection to the global optical fiber communication networks.
