MegaSuite 6 is the Largest New Data Center Underway in Lower Manhattan
HOLMDEL, N.J., March 26, 2019— Hylan, a market leading provider of specialized communications engineering and construction services, is pleased to announce today it has been selected by DataGryd, a premier data center provider in New York City, to design and build the power infrastructure for its MegaSuite 6, a high-density and high-performance data center suite.
DataGryd’s contract was awarded to Hylan Datacom & Electrical, a division of Hylan that offers an array of services for Datacom, DAS Installations, Electrical Contracting, Lighting and Electrical Maintenance, Utility Construction, and Emergency/Disaster Recovery. As the chosen electrical contractor for the project, Hylan will fully design and build out 1 Megawatt (MW) of power infrastructure for the data hall at the iconic 60 Hudson Street carrier hotel, which will also have access to direct primary utility feeds of up to 5,000 KW of power. The build supports the increasing demand for data processing and data storage compute requirements, providing DataGryd customers with secure, reliable infrastructure while supporting global networking capabilities.
Following a stringent RFP process where it sought a ‘best-in-class’ provider, DataGryd ultimately selected Hylan for being a true leader in the space who could ensure the highest quality of work in a specific timeline.
“DataGryd’s selection of Hylan to design and build the power infrastructure for MegaSuite 6, our newest 1 MW data hall, ensures tenant will receive access to space and power capabilities currently lacking in downtown Manhattan,” states Tom Brown, DataGryd President and CEO. “Hylan is a leader in the industry and the company’s knowledge and experience in the technology space makes them the ideal partner for this project.”
Hylan Datacom & Electrical provides large and small customers with complete services for fiber optic cabling, wireless networks, intelligent traffic systems, signage, commercial and industrial electrical installations, emergency systems, building control systems, and more.
“Hylan is honored to work with DataGryd and its exciting new high-power data center offering,” states Paul Angerame, President of Hylan Datacom & Electrical. “Hylan Datacom & Electrical prides itself as being among the most trusted contractors in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions, and our team looks forward to supporting the project, helping DataGryd customers to support their global networking requirements.”
