Sisk announced for Vantage Data Centers Dublin campus

Sisk has officially been named as the main contractor for the first two phases of Vantage Data Centers flagship Ireland campus (DUB1) at Profile Park in Dublin.

The first two phases consist of 52MW of IT capacity, with the first phase expected to be operational in late 2024.

Located on 22 acres, the two first phases of the campus will consist of one 32MW facility and one 20MW facility with the first phase expected to be operational in late 2024. The campus is being built in alignment with Vantage’s sustainable blueprint. The Dub-1 campus will include an on-site 100MVA multi fuel generation plant capable of running a combination of fuels, primarily Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO).

Donal McCarthy, Chief Operating Officer, Data, Life Sciences & Tech, Sisk said: “Sisk is pleased to announce our role as the main contractor for the initial two phases of Vantage’s leading Irish campus. Leveraging our experience in delivering large-scale data centres across Ireland and Europe, we are well-positioned to deliver a cutting-edge data centre for our client. Additionally, our on-site team has introduced impressive sustainable practices, such as segregating and processing polystyrene directly on site, a first for Sisk. We will be creating a world-class campus and leaving a lasting legacy for the communities surrounding Grange Castle.”

Sisk have been leading an initiative on site around waste and plastic management, in conjunction with waste contractors Thorntons/Waste Matters and our supply chain partners Kirby. The site also aims to become the first Zero Plastic to Landfill certified construction project, a process being put in place by the site team and Responsible Plastics Management (RPM).

The certification will include third-party auditing of the site, looking at how the project aims to reduce plastic coming to site, good segregation practices onsite and ultimately how plastic coming from the project is managed at our waste contractors ensuring that the plastic does not end up in landfill.

Sisk has recycled nearly one tonne of soft plastics and cardboard since January 2024.
