Web Hosting Tools LONDON, UK – Telehouse Europe today announced that the final bolt of its Telehouse West datacentre has been put into place. As part of yesterday’s ‘topping out’ ceremony, staff gathered on the top floor of the nine-storey building to witness Mr Mitsui, Managing Director, Telehouse Europe, tighten the last of 57,334 bolts used in the construction of the state-of-the-art facility.

The ceremony marked a key milestone in the building of Telehouse West, which is due for completion in March 2010. The datacentre will provide 19,000 square metres of secure storage space for UK businesses and will act as a connection hub to over 60 available carriers and over 300 ISPs, allowing customers to choose the service that best suits their needs. The facility will also help companies reduce their carbon footprint by exporting waste heat to help heat nearby homes and businesses in the heart of London’s Docklands. The move will save up to 1,110 tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum and provide up to nine megawatts of power for the local neighbourhood.
