Kao Data becomes first UK data center to run all backup generators on HVO

July 19, 2021 |

In the UK, Kao Data announced it has taken a further step towards its Net Zero ambitions by becoming the UK’s first data center to transition all backup generators at its Harlow campus to HVO. This pioneering move, made possible by partnering with Crown Oil, means Kao Data will eliminate up to 90% of net CO2 from their backup generators and significantly reduce nitrogen oxide, particulate matter and carbon monoxide emissions.

Today Kao Data delivers one of the UK’s most sustainable colocation data center campuses. Its existing initiatives include using 100% renewable energy, utilizing 100% refrigerant-free indirect evaporative cooling technologies, and incorporating hyperscale inspired design to deliver a market-leading PUE of <1.2, even at partial loads. In line with its commitments as a signatory of the Climate Neutral Data Centre Pact (CNDCP), the use of Crown Oil HVO fuel marks another significant step in the company’s plans to become a fully carbon neutral data center operator by 2030.
