Romanian cloud services provider, ClusterPower, has announced plans to build a data centre campus near Craiova, 200km west of the capital, Bucharest. The proposed site is in the village of Mischii, Dolj county. The government has provided half of the $43 million initial budget, as part of its plans to boost the growth of digital infrastructure in the country.
The ClusterPower Technology Campus has planned for five data centres to be built on the 2.5-hectare site. Once fully developed, the campus will provide 200MW of IT capacity. The company aims to have a PUE of 1.1 and be powered by natural gas produced by an on-site power plant.
To date, ClusterPower has no existing data centre operations and the proposed scheme will be by far the largest data centre development in the country’s history. The company plans to have the first phase completed in 2025.
