CyrusOne Confirms Fourth Data centre Facility Amid Growing Frankfurt Demand

July 17, 2020

Deutsche Version

FRANKFURT, 17 July 2020: CyrusOne Inc. (NASDAQ: CONE), a leading global real estate investment trust (REIT), announced plans to develop a state-of-the-art data centre delivering 17 megawatts of power capacity in Europe’s digital capital Frankfurt, Germany. The construction of the fourth facility in Sossenheim is driven by the strong hyperscale demand in the market. Frankfurt IV adds to CyrusOne’s existing portfolio of two operational and one shell complete data centres in the Sossenheim district with a combined power capacity of nearly 90 megawatts.

“Demand in Frankfurt continues to be driven by hyperscale providers, which accounted for 80% of the market’s take-up in 2019,” said Matt Pullen, Managing Director Europe, CyrusOne. “CyrusOne is uniquely positioned to serve the hyperscale community in Frankfurt. We have had tremendous success in the market over the last five years through selecting the right locations and deploying capital to support our customers’ requirements. Our flexibility in accommodating their needs from a design, delivery and commercial perspective allows them to execute quickly and easily.”

Upon completion, CyrusOne’s Frankfurt IV will deliver 17 megawatts of power capacity to 4,800 sq m (51,667 sq ft) of world-class technical space within a single four-storey building. The data centre follows CyrusOne’s standard design philosophy and deploys closed loop chilled-water cooling. This highly efficient system uses an air-cooled chiller technology with an integrated compressor and condenser that cools the closed loop of water, dramatically reducing water consumption during the cooling process whilst maintaining a low Power Usage Efficiency (PUE).

This latest development in Frankfurt, alongside CyrusOne’s other expansion efforts in Amsterdam, Dublin and London, reflects the strength of these European markets.

CyrusOne operates nearly 50 data centre facilities, and has presence across the United States, Europe and Asia to provide customers with the flexibility and scale to match their specific IT growth needs. The company’s European portfolio totals approximately 150 megawatts of operational facilities and sites under development across Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Dublin.
