“We are seeing huge interest in sustainable data center development in the Nordic region and continue to invest to capitalize on this trend. 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,” said Wiljar Nesse, CEO of DigiPlex. “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.”
“We are very happy to welcome DigiPlex to Høje-Taastrup. Their data center campus will not only bring jobs, but also add value to the municipality. DigiPlex which is an environmentally sustainable datacenter will create development and invest in our local infrastructure and ecosystem. I’m also very pleased to announce that DigiPlex has kindly agreed to contribute to water reservoirs and to upgrade local roads as well as building new cycle paths. This will benefit the whole community”, commented Michael Ziegler, Mayor of Høje-Taastrup.
“Data center developments such as DigiPlex’ are exactly what we aim for to bring the advantages of the digitalization to Danish economy. The high-value services will cement Denmark’s already established reputation as a perfect location for these enablers of the sustainable digital economy. We are pleased to see DigiPlex expanding its current footprint in Denmark to now also include Høje-Taastrup,” said Maria Tarp, Director, Invest in Denmark.
Carl H. Petersen of the CRT companies, who is selling the land, added; “It was important to us that the new owner added value to the land and to the local community. In DigiPlex I know we have found the perfect owner. The company’s plans complement local development priorities, create opportunity for citizens and will deliver a highly sustainable campus and over DKK 22 million in infrastructure upgrades.”
