Keysource in STFC win

Data centre and critical environment specialist, Keysource, has been appointed by the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) to provide ongoing maintenance and emergency response service for the existing and new critical data centre plant and infrastructure at its STFC Daresbury Laboratory Data centre facility in Warrington.

Under the terms of the maintenance and support agreement, Keysource will provide coordinated, planned preventative maintenance (PPM) along with a 24×7 help desk and technical response and emergency response to site in the event of any issues. Regulatory compliance will be ensured, and manufacturer warranties maintained and managed where applicable.

The contract award follows on from the recent completion by Keysource of the data centre upgrade at the Daresbury Laboratory facility. The project involved supporting the live operation upgrade of the data centre facility which includes the lifecycle replacement of critical power, cooling and protection systems. This enabled collaboration with STFC to plan the works and mitigate risk to the high-performance computing load which remained available throughout the upgrade.

Speaking about the new contract award, Jon Healy, Operations Director at Keysource, said: “STFC  carries out research in science and engineering, and funds UK research and innovation in areas including particle physics, nuclear physics, space science and astronomy. As such the security of its data is key and we are pleased to be supporting them in achieving their objectives of resilience and sustainability.”

Waste Management and Recycling Survey

FMJ in conjunction with Grundon Waste Management have launched the 2022 survey into how FMs approach their waste management and recycling responsibilities.

It’s the fifth year for the annual appraisal, and as we return to normal, there is a real opportunity for FMs to reappraise their waste and recycling operations and look at new, smarter waste management strategies.

In order to understand how FMs have navigated their way through the last year and their plans for meeting stringent waste and recycling targets we’ve posed a series of questions which include insights into FMs’ waste management strategy and targets, such as zero waste and landfill, the types of waste organisations produce and what helps FMs promote waste management in their organisations?

Please share your experiences and opinions on waste management. The survey will take just five minutes to complete, and as a thank you for taking part, respondents will be entered into a prize draw to win a £150 Amazon gift card.
