Vantage Data Centers said Tuesday that it has broken ground on second campuses in both Frankfurt and Berlin.
In the most sought-after data center market in Europe, Vantage has begun construction of a second Frankfurt campus. This five-acre (two-hectare) campus, located in Raunheim, will provide 40MW of critical IT capacity and total more than 355,000 square feet (33,000 square meters) once complete. The initial phase of this five-story facility is scheduled for delivery in the fall of 2022.
Vantage is also continuing to develop its flagship Frankfurt campus, located in Offenbach, approximately 30 kilometers from Raunheim. Once fully developed, both campuses will offer hyperscalers, cloud providers and large enterprise customers a total of 95MW of IT capacity in the Frankfurt region.
Vantage has also begun construction of a second campus in Berlin. Located only 20 kilometers from its first Berlin campus and 10 kilometers from the Brandenburg International Airport, the two-building campus will sit on 12 acres (five hectares) and provide 32MW of critical IT capacity. Both facilities will consist of two stories and feature more than 260,000 square feet (24,000 square meters) combined. The initial phase is scheduled to be operational in the summer of 2022. Development continues at the company’s first Berlin campus as well. Once fully developed, both campuses will offer 64MW of IT capacity.
“Our new developments in Frankfurt and Berlin are testaments to our significant growth throughout EMEA in less than 24 months in the market,” said Antoine Boniface, president, Vantage EMEA. “Our portfolio now consists of nine campuses throughout EMEA, including our recently announced development in South Africa. Demand from our customers continues to increase in these major economic centers, and our ability to scale quickly ensures our sustainable, state-of-the-art facilities will be ready to meet our customers’ business needs.”
In addition, Vantage recently opened the first of four data centers on its growing Swiss campus sited in Winterthur just 25 kilometers northeast of downtown Zurich. Once fully developed, the seven-acre (three-hectare) campus will offer 40MW of IT capacity to customers.
