Mercury was delighted to host a group of electrical engineering and sustainability students from the Waterford Institute of Technology for a tour of one our ongoing Amsterdam enterprise data centre projects on Wednesday 22nd January.

The students, along with lecturer David Williams were brought on a tour of the facility and were given an insightful presentation into the processes behind the engineering and construction of a data centre.

Jack English Darmstadt, Project Manager for Mercury at the facility said: “It was a pleasure to host David and his group of WIT students.

“I hope they found their afternoon at the facility interesting and take some positive insights with them into the engineering prospects that are out there for them at the end of the course.”

David Williams of the Waterford Institute of Technology said: “Sincere thank you to Mercury Engineering & HN Electrical for facilitating our visit to one of Holland’s largest data storage facilities today (Wednesday), currently under construction.

“It was an incredible experience to view first hand the engineering and technology that goes in to these facilities.

“Great also to meet past graduates of the BEng in electrical engineering on site.

“Thank you to Mercury.”
