CyrusOne is expanding its European footprint with a new 21MW Madrid facility. The company has acquired a five-acre site at Alcobendas, Madrid, to build the data centre to serve the emerging hyperscale market in the city.
Madrid I is designed to be a single two-storey building, providing around 65,000 square feet of technical space. The facility will utilise 100 per cent renewable energy and generate 100 kW on-site through roof-mounted solar PV panels.
The design also includes air-cooled closed-loop chiller technology to limit water usage and water-retention technologies such as rainwater recovery and low water requirement planting. Electric car charging points and bicycle storage will be provided on-site, which is strategically located close to local public transport hubs.
“Our investment in the region is another milestone on our European roadmap Matt Pullen, EVP and managing director for Europe at CyrusOne, said. “As we continue to expand our footprint across the continent to provide coverage, capacity and connectivity requirements to support our customers’ ambitions.”
