CyrusOne has acquired a new 15.5 acre site in the Netherlands with plans to develop a brand new 360,000 square foot data centre campus.

The data centre real estate investment trust will partner with Schiphol Area Development Company (SADC) to develop a new data centre campus at PolanenPark, which sits around 10 miles west of Amsterdam. The facility will offer an estimated 72 MW of power capacity once completed.

The site will be CyrusOne’s second major expansion in the Netherlands, having struck an agreement earlier this year 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.

“CyrusOne’s success is driven by our core team’s ability and commitment to leverage our renowned modular design approach, since it is proven to be the data center solution that provides customers with the highest quality data center product, in record time and for the lowest cost,” said Tesh Durvasula, president of Europe, CyrusOne.

“We are excited to continue our expansion in the Netherlands in partnership with the SADC team to develop a state of the art data-center campus at PolanenPark for our cloud and enterprise customers.”

SADC was set up in 1987 and develops high quality, accessible, internationally competitive business locations in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area, including PolanenPark, where the new CyrusOne facility will be built.

"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.
