The company has acquired a five acre site at Alcobendas in Madrid.The Madrid I data centre is designed to be a single two storey building, providing 65,000 sq ft of technical space.
The facility will achieve BREEAM accreditation of “very good”, said CyrusOne, and utilise 100% renewable energy and generate 100 kW on-site through roof mounted solar PV panels. The design also includes air-cooled closed loop chiller technology to limit water usage and water retention technologies such as rainwater recovery and low water requirement planting. Electric car charging points and bicycle storage will be provided on-site, which is strategically located close to local public transport hubs.
Matt Pullen, EVP and Managing Director for Europe at CyrusOne, said: “Our investment in the region is another milestone on our European roadmap as we continue to expand our footprint across the continent to provide coverage, capacity and connectivity requirements to support our customers’ ambitions.”
CyrusOne’s European portfolio accounts for approximately 200MW of power capacity across Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris and Dublin.
