Saval new partner of Dutch Data Center Association

After organizing our first “Datacenter Academy & Innovations Day” with Marsh Nederland & Mercer in the Johan Cruijff ArenA, we signed a cooperation agreement with the Dutch Data Center Association from January 1st this year.

Dutch Data Center Association (DDA) is the trade association of data centers in the Netherlands. DDA believes that collaboration is the best way to move forward and connects data centers, the market, interest groups and other companies in the digital sector. They now connect 90% of the market-leading data centers in the Netherlands with a mission: to strengthen economic growth and to profile the data center sector to the government, media and society.

With a strong focus on the data center industry and our leading fire protection technologies within data centers, we are convinced that we can support this sector with the best possible solutions in the market. This makes Saval the best fire protection partner for DDA.

Stijn Grove, Director of the Dutch Data Center Association: “Fire safety is of great importance in every sector. However, fire safety in a data center has a few extra challenges because the use of water as an extinguishing agent can cause major problems for the large amount of advanced equipment in a data center. Saval specializes in the careful handling of fire extinguishing systems for environments with special requirements and has extensive knowledge of the sensitivity of data centers. It is therefore a valuable addition that Saval joins the DDA network. ”

Miguel Martinez Sales Manager at Saval emphasizes: “The need for high availability of a data center requires a sensitive fire detection system that detects and communicates the smallest smoldering fire. If the fire extinguishing system is activated, the damage to the data center equipment must be as minimal as possible, so that they are operational again after a quick repair.”
