Interxion plans new data centres in Europe


Interxion Holding plans to construct additional data centres in Frankfurt, London, and Stockholm. The company will construct its 12th data centre (FRA12) on its Frankfurt campus and is expected to provide approximately 1,100 sqm of equipped space, with a total of approximately 2MW of customer available power. Built in a single phase, FRA12 is scheduled to become available in 4Q 2017 and will supplement FRA11, which is also scheduled to become available starting in 4Q17. A total of 5,900 sqm of equipped space is being constructed across the two new data centres in Frankfurt.

In London, Interxion will build its third data centre (LON3) on its Brick Lane campus, which is expected to provide approximately 1,800 sqm of equipped space and a total of approximately 3MW of customer available power. It will be constructed in a single phase that is scheduled to become available in mid-2018. In Stockholm, Interxion will construct its fifth data centre (STO5) on its existing campus. It is expected to provide approximately 2,200 sqm of equipped space and a total of approximately 3.5MW of customer available power when fully built out. STO5 will be constructed in three phases. The first phase, which will provide approximately 600 sqm of equipped space and nearly 1MW of customer available power, is scheduled to be available in 3Q 2017.

David Ruberg, Interxion’s chief executive officer, commented: “Demand in Frankfurt remains robust, and Interxion’s campus in the city is among the world’s most highly connected. We continue to attract cloud platforms together with connectivity providers, content providers and enterprises to these data centres. Customer interest for our services in London has continued since last summer’s Brexit vote. Interxion’s campus in Central London has developed strong communities of interest in the financial services, digital media, and connectivity segments, and this new data centre will enable Interxion to further enhance these vibrant communities.

“Stockholm, the market with the highest connectivity concentration in the Nordics, is a leading location for technology innovation and data content and serves as a transit city to Eastern Europe and Russia. We continue to experience strong demand in Stockholm, driven by systems integrators, cloud, digital media and connectivity segments.”
