CyrusOne, a leading global data center developer and operator specializing in delivering state-of-the-art digital infrastructure solutions, has announced plans to build its next data center in Frankfurt, named FRA6, following the acquisition of the Europark site in Sossenheim.
Strategically located within Germany’s “Digital City”, and within one of the key development areas of Frankfurt outlined by city officials’ plan to meet future requirements for data centers, the site is situated in close proximity to several operational CyrusOne Data Centers and will offer a total IT capacity of 72 MW delivered over four floors, with each level delivering 18 MW.
With the build currently in the planning stages, the acquired site encompasses over 27,500 square meters (6.8 acres) of land and offers a significant opportunity for CyrusOne to deliver further innovative high-performance data center capacity to hyperscale customers in one of Europe’s leading data center markets.
Following in the footsteps of CyrusOne’s existing portfolio in Frankfurt and more broadly across Europe, sustainability and biodiversity will play a central role in the facility. FRA6 will become BREEAM “Excellent” certified and will meet the requirements of the planned Energy Efficiency Act. Built with sustainable materials, the facility is designed to run at a PUE of below 1.3 and feature a closed loop water cooling system designed to minimize water consumption and waste.
“The acquisition of the Europark site further demonstrates CyrusOne’s commitment to Frankfurt as the digital capital of Europe and our ongoing European expansion. We are continually assessing the market with a view to increasing our presence in the Frankfurt area,” said Andreas Paduch, Area Vice President, European Sales at CyrusOne. “Initial discussions with hyperscale customers and other large enterprises have revealed significant early interest in FRA6 and we look forward to continuing these as we progress the build. This underscores both our expertise in this market and our ability to consistently deliver solutions that are instrumental to our customers’ business success and expansion goals.”
With more than 50 high-performance data centers across the globe, CyrusOne offers its customers the opportunity to further drive their own IT growth, whilst staying true to their individuality and scalability goals. The company’s European portfolio includes over 270 MW IT capacity across Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Madrid, Paris and Dublin, including all operational data centers and active developments.
