Commercial Moves Group provided the relevant Engineering, Relocation Services and various materials associated with KCA Deutag’s Server move from Edinburgh to Aberdeen on behalf of our client, Brightsolid.
Engineering & Relocation Services
In advance of the physical migration a cable audit of the existing hardware equipment was carried out to ascertain engineering requirements in both Edinburgh and Aberdeen. With this in place we then carried out a full decommissioning of the hardware to be relocated, de-racked and packed into flight cases for the transport to Aberdeen. We had two vehicles operating and the transport was staggered to suit the project specification. On arrival in Aberdeen all the equipment was duly offloaded, re-racked and fully recommissioned to ensure all IT services for the business were functioning.
