Avacon and enviaM to build state-of-the-art data centre for the Hanover region

The Avacon Group and the enviaM Group are investing together in a future-proof IT infrastructure. By mid-2025, a 2,000 square metre data centre with space for 28,000 servers at the highest level of security will be built in the Sehnde-Ost industrial area, Hanover region.

The Edge Data Centre provides secure on-site capacities for decentralised data processing with high availability and short data paths for customers. Both companies are investing a total of around 40 million euros in the project.

“The Avacon Data Centre in Sehnde not only sets new standards for security and performance, but is also an important stimulus for the economic development of the Hanover region. With minimal latency times and maximum data security, we strengthen the competitiveness of local companies and make the Hanover region even more attractive for investments,” says Marten Bunnemann, CEO of Avacon AG.

“This cooperation is an investment in the future. With the increasing digitalisation of the economy, the amount of data to be processed is growing rapidly. A reliable and secure infrastructure is essential for this. “We are combining our competencies as operators of data centres in Central Germany with the Avacon Group,” says Patrick Kather, Director of Sales at enviaM, one of the leading regional energy service providers in Eastern Germany.

“Data centres are critical to modern information and communications technology and play an important role in storing and processing data in many industries – including research, healthcare and financial services. They help drive technological developments and improve the digital infrastructure. This settlement promotes the economy in our region and beyond,” said Mayor Olaf Kruse. “I am pleased with Avacon’s decision, with whom we also have a good working relationship in other areas.”
