STACK Infrastructure, the digital infrastructure partner to the world’s most innovative companies and leading global developer and operator of data centers, has announced that it plans to develop an 80MW data center campus in Frankfurt (Liederbach), Germany. The new site will enable STACK to fulfill strategic client requirements and provide essential capacity in the city’s constrained data center market.
STACK acquired the 70,000-square-meter (17-acre) site from Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Deutschland GmbH (CCEP DE), who operated a bottling and distribution plant at the location for more than 50 years. STACK worked closely with CCEP DE to obtain the property while also collaborating extensively with the Municipality of Liederbach to foster valuable local relationships and a shared vision for its advanced data center campus. Focused on energy efficiency and sustainability, the campus will accommodate four facilities which will contribute to a circular economy through the deployment of innovative green technologies such as rainwater harvesting and the provision of excess heat to a proposed local residential development.
“STACK prides itself on being a trusted partner to our clients. We recognize that there is an overwhelming demand for fast, flexible, resilient, and efficient data center infrastructure in Frankfurt, so we’ve taken up the call to deliver exactly what our clients expect,” said John Eland, CEO of STACK EMEA. “We relish the opportunity to be a positive force in the local community while delivering world-class solutions backed by STACK’s global platform.”
“The Municipality of Liederbach is proud to welcome its first data center campus and to facilitate an ever more connected world,” said Eva Söllner, Mayor of Liederbach. “We are confident that STACK will bring several short- and long-term advantages as well as new perspectives to our town and the area so we welcome them and look forward to supporting their growth.”
STACK has been establishing a scalable presence across EMEA since it first launched in the region earlier this year, while employing the strong regional expertise of its teams. The Frankfurt campus is the company’s eighth European location, joining STACK’s growing EMEA portfolio in Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Milan, Geneva, Avenches, and Zurich.
