Centrica and AVK in datacentre collab

Centrica Business Solutions and AVK have this week agreed to work together to develop solutions for the datacentre market using gas engine power generation systems and other energy technologies, to combat the shortage of available grid capacity and to overcome changing environmental legislation around the use of diesel generation.

AVK's Ben Pritchard said the collaboration commits both companies to co-develop a suite of secure power offerings that deliver a more sustainable energy pathway for data centres without any compromise to on-site resilience.

"We have been actively seeking a partner to help us develop our capability in prime power and gas back-up generation. Centrica has extensive experience with gas engines and the nuances of the energy markets and represents the ideal partner with which to develop a compelling market offering."

AVK is the largest supplier of datacentre and critical power solutions in the UK and Ireland, while Centrica Business Solutions specialises in gas generation, route to market services, optimisation and innovative financial structures, such as the provision of energy-as-a-service.
