New carbon-neutral data centre facility to be built in Spain

Spanish engineering company Ingenostrum is partnering with American consulting firm TLM Group to develop a 150MW data centre in Spain. The facility, to be located in the CCGreen project eco-industrial park in the Extremadura region of western, will use outside air cooling in conjunction with a geothermal cooling system.

It is thought that this would be the first carbon-neutral data centre in the European Union, despite a number of data centre operators already claiming to be carbon neutral through a combination of on-site power generation and power purchase agreements (PPAs) to offset energy use.

A 120MW photovoltaic solar farm is also being developed in the park that will power the data centre. It will be built to Tier IV standards, the data centre will have a PUE of 1.2 as a result. While Spain has a number of large-scale data centre developments in the country, including Equinix, NTT, and Amazon, most are clustered around Madrid and Barcelona.
