LANDS IN LONDON, FRANKFURT, PARIS AND JAPAN
Colt Data Centre Services (DCS), has just announced that it has secured ten new parcels of land across Europe and APAC for the development of its greenfield hyperscale data centers.
The new sites which are spread across London, Frankfurt, Paris and Japan, are planned to enable the development of hyperscale data centers across their regions and will further support Colt DCS’ portfolio expansion by over 500MVA of power. With these latest land acquisitions, the company disclosed that it is on track to develop around 100MW of IT power capacity across its global markets.
“This announcement marks yet another major milestone in the acceleration of its hyperscale strategy and positions Colt DCS as a major hyperscale and large enterprise data center provider in the market. Colt DCS has truly put a stake in the ground with the acquisition of these ten new sites, signaling to the market the continued success of our approach,” said Niclas Sanfridsson, CEO of Colt DCS.
“Refining our portfolio has enabled us to go into full growth mode. We want to create success for our partners, customers, and for the future of the business. Focusing clearly on the hyperscale and large enterprise business enables us to do just that. We are now in position to swiftly bring about meaningful and sustainable change in the market,” said Richard Wellbrock, VP Real Estate, Colt DCS.
This announcement follows the sale of Colt DCS’ 12 colocation sites across Europe to AltasEdge Data Centres which the company considers as a move to refine its portfolio to allow more focus on its hyperscale and large enterprise strategy.
Prior to the data center sales announcement, Colt DCS started the construction of a new 45MW data center in Osaka, Japan, which is planned to be the first proposed data centers of a joint venture between Colt DCS and Mitsui & Co, and Mitsui & Co Asset Management Holdings, aimed at providing hyperscale data centers in Japan.
