Carrier-neutral data center provider CyrusOne, a company with more than 45 data centers worldwide, has acquired 15.5 acres of land from Schiphol Area Development Company N.V. (‘SADC’), a developer of “high-quality” business parks in the Amsterdam metropolitan area, for the development of a new data center campus in PolanenPark.
The plot of land is located on SADC’s PolanenPark campus, approximately 10 miles west of central Amsterdam. CyrusOne will develop up to 360,000 square feet with an estimated 72 MW of power capacity on the site.
“CyrusOne’s success is driven by our core team’s ability and commitment to leverage our renowned modular design approach, since it is proven to be the data center solution that provides customers with the highest quality data center product, in record time and for the lowest cost,” said Tesh Durvasula, President of Europe, CyrusOne. “We are excited to continue our expansion in the Netherlands in partnership with the SADC team to develop a state of the art data-center campus at PolanenPark for our cloud and enterprise customers.”
This is the second major expansion announcement for CyrusOne in the Netherlands. In October 2018, CyrusOne announced an agreement with Agriport A7 for the development of up to 270MW on an 83-acre campus approximately 25 miles north of central Amsterdam in Middenmeer.
“For several years, SADC has been working closely with Amsterdam Airport Area and GreenIT Amsterdam to develop internationally competitive propositions for data centers,” said Reinoud Fleurke, Area Development Manager, SADC. “We are pleased to be able to offer CyrusOne a place and at the same time contribute to the sustainable growth of the data center sector and the digital economy.”
