"For several years, SADC has been working closely with Amsterdam Airport Area and GreenIT Amsterdam to develop internationally competitive propositions for data centers. 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,” said Reinoud Fleurke, Area Development Manager SADC.
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 270 MW on an 83-acre campus approximately 25 miles north of central Amsterdam in Middenmeer.
SustainabilitySADC and foundation Green IT Amsterdam have been working together since 2016 on the development of sustainable data centers in the MRA. The data center at PolanenPark is built according to the latest standards and is part of the GreenIT project CATALYST. In the coming period, together with SADC, the municipality of Haarlem, the Province of North Holland, Waternet, Alliander DGO, CyrusOne will carry out research into the feasibility of constructing a heat network in Haarlem. To this end, the parties have entered into a partnership within the context of the MRA Heat and Cold program.
