Nordic data center services provider DigiPlex
has acquired a plot of land in Copenhagen, Denmark where it intends to develop for a “major data center campus”.
Established in 2001, DigiPlex specializes in developing energy-efficient carrier-neutral data centers that provide “independent, innovative technology”. Its centers offer colocation and IT housing that harnesses renewable energy produced “from 100% sustainable sources”. The company also operates in Sweden and Norway and offers connectivity to “all major cloud and network service providers”. The 110,000-square-meter plot will be built in Høje-Taastrup municipality on the outskirts of Copenhagen.
DigiPlex’s new campus will include five data centers and is the company’s second data center site in Denmark. It will feature “waste heat recovery technology” to ensure environmental sustainability. The five centers will harness water from onsite wells and rainwater. The campus will also include two cycle tracks and the company will upgrade local roads as part of the development.
"We are seeing huge interest in sustainable data center development in the Nordic region and continue to invest to capitalize on this trend,” suggested DigiPlex’s CEO Wiljar Nesse. “The acquisition of this major plot, plus the Norwegian land acquisition we announced last month, further strengthens DigiPlex ability to rapidly meet the need for data center capacity from hyperscalers as well as local and international businesses requiring ultra-sustainable, cost effective colocation facilities. Through close collaboration with all parties we already have power agreements, access to water, and all necessary building regulation approvals in place. We are ready to start campus construction and are already in discussion with a number of potential international customers."Do you know of any other companies investing in data center projects?
