Vantage data centres announced it has broken ground on two greenfield campuses in Berlin and Warsaw. The development of these sites is part of a European expansion that will provide hyperscalers, cloud providers and large enterprises with best in class hyper scale data centre campuses in two sought after EU regions.
As part of the company’s environmental sustainability program, it will offer customers renewable energy options at the campus to reduce their carbon emissions. It will use a highly efficient cooling system with outside air economisation which will have the ability to connect into district heating schemes to reuse waste heat. The campus will also feature on site solar energy generation for non critical areas, EV charging stations, maximised green space and underground drainage to manage runoff into local waterways.
The Warsaw campus will have two state of the art data centres. The first facility will include 16MW of capacity and the second facility will include 32MW of capacity, offering a combined 48MW of critical IT load once fully developed. The first phase will include 8MW of IT capacity.
It will also offer customers renewable energy options and will feature hyper efficient cooling with outside air economisation and EV charging stations, along with amenities such as customisable workspaces, secure storage and multiple meeting space options.
“The groundbreakings of Berlin and Warsaw are yet another testament to the company’s rapid global growth and industry leading time to market strategy,” Antoine Boniface, president of Europe at Vantage data centres, said. “We have made significant progress in our greenfield developments in Berlin, Warsaw, Zurich and Frankfurt. We have proven that we are prepared to deploy premier hyperscale facilities at industry leading speed in order to best serve the needs of our customers.”
The company has made significant investments in Europe since it first entered the continent, including the acquisitions of competitors and rivals. In addition to Berlin and Warsaw, there are now operational campuses in Frankfurt and Cardiff and a new campus is under development in Zurich.
