UAE’s Alec launches subsidiary to revamp data centre construction across MENA

The company will employ the group’s in-house civil, MEP, and technological expertise to help corporations

UAE’s Alec Group has announced the establishment of its newest subsidiary, Alec Data Centre Solutions.

The newly formed entity will focus on three primary lines of business — traditional data centre construction solutions, prefabricated solutions, and modernisation and retrofit solutions.

The company will employ the group’s in-house civil, MEP, and technological expertise to help corporations and hyperscalers construct large-scale, customised data centres for cloud service delivery, mission-critical workloads, and disaster recovery.

It will also be the first entity in the MENA region to focus on liquid immersion technologies, resulting in more sustainable, customisable, and cost-effective data centres. Alec Data Centre Solutions will open its experience centre in the coming weeks, enabling clients and prospects to review solutions first-hand, a statement said.

“Until now, cost, expertise, logistics, customisability, and scalability have all presented formidable challenges to regional organisations looking to establish their own data centres, hampering their ability to innovate at pace and scale,” said Kez Taylor, CEO at Alec. “With our entry into the rapidly advancing data centre space, Alec is set to fill the void for a single, large-scale specialist organisation that can offer the entire gamut of data centre development services.”

With its prefabricated data centre line manufactured at its Dubai facility, the company will be able to offer scalable, edge-type deployments across multiple or remote sites in the region.

Through its partnership with Submer, an innovator in advanced immersion cooling solutions for cloud and edge computing, the company aims for data centre energy efficiency with solutions that help save 50 per cent on capex building costs, up to 95 per cent on cooling expenses, and more than 90 per cent water usage for cooling purposes, the statement added.

“Alec Data Centre Solutions is perfectly positioned to cater to the region’s growing demand for world-class data centres. Building on the strengths of the broader Alec Group allows us to draw from a vast pool of resources and expertise to deliver the next-generation data centres that will power the digital transformation of enterprises in the region,” said Alec Data Centre Solutions’ spokesperson, Bjorn Viedge.
