Kao Park is named after Nobel prize winning scientist Charles Kao. This year the site will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the discovery of fibre optic cable which, along with George Hockham in 1966, Charles discovered the technology behind the fibre optic cable which revolutionised the world of optical communications.
This site is the first part of the Harlow Enterprise Zone to be delivered and is strategically located in the emerging life sciences belt of the London-Stansted-Cambridge corridor.
Paul Finch said, ‘Kao Data Campus is the next generation of data centre and will be an important part of the UK digital economy. I am looking forward to this new challenge and working with our customers on a site that holds so much rich innovation history.’
