Green Datacenter AG has entered the next phase of construction at the Metro-Campus Zurich. Following the completion of the first data center in 2022, construction work on the N and O data centers has now commenced earlier than originally anticipated, as the provider of data centers and associated services based in Lupfig in the canton of Aargau writes in a press release. The company explains that sharply rising demand for secure, high-performance data centers is the reason behind construction work starting early.
“Our growth reflects the rapid technology and digitalization push”, as Roger Süess, CEO of Green, explains in the press release, before adding: “Modern data centers are needed to ensure that this transformation can be realized in Switzerland quickly, securely and sustainably”. The two new data centers should eventually offer space for up to 160,000 IT systems.
Households and businesses located in surrounding municipalities will also stand to benefit from the data centers. In this context, Green Datacenter is investing millions in waste heat extraction and working closely with Energie 360°”, the company writes. The Zurich-based energy provider is realizing several cooperative district heating projects in the region. “We’re doing our bit for the circular economy and supporting the energy transition through the use of waste heat as well as a number of other measures”, comments Süess. “We are convinced that future-oriented digitalization can only be achieved through sustainable data centers”, he concludes.
