Developer and operator Yondr Group said it has plans to develop a data centre project in Frankfurt, Germany.
The project, located in the City of Bischofsheim, is expected to be ready for service by Q1 2024.
The 40MW facility in Bischofsheim will join the company’s growing portfolio which includes the recent announcement of a 100MW data centre development in Slough, UK.
Frankfurt, part of the FLAP – Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam and Paris – market, is expected to surpass 600MW of total supply this year, with 145MW of new supply expected to come online, according to a CBRE report.
The growth is being driven by hyperscale demand as well as capacity needs from multinational enterprises.
Pete Jones, Chief Development Officer and Founder at Yondr Group, said: “The last few years have seen aggressive expansion in Frankfurt due to increased cloud capacity demands. The availability of this new metro will greatly support our clients’ growth and remove any constraints when it comes to scalability challenges.”
Bischofsheim’s Mayor Ingo Kalweit, added: “The data centre project proposed by Yondr is the largest and perhaps the most important development project for the City of Bischofsheim.
“With Yondr’s presence, Bischofsheim will become a digital infrastructure pillar and our community will greatly benefit from the influx in innovation.”
