Stack Infrastructure plans to build an 80 MW data center campus in Frankfurt. The data center will be built on an earlier Coca-Cola bottling plant.
Earlier this week, Stack announced its plans to develop a new 80MW in the Liederbach area west of the German city. Coca-Cola has been operating the bottling and distribution plant for over 50 years on Stack’s now-acquired land. The land spans about 17-acre where the data center will be built.
Reportedly, the campus will house four facilities, incorporate green initiatives like rainwater harvesting, and offer excess heat to a proposed local residential development.
Stack EMEA’s CEO, John Eland, said, “Stack prides itself on being a trusted partner to our clients. We recognize an overwhelming demand for fast, flexible, resilient, and efficient data center infrastructure in Frankfurt, so we’ve taken up the call to deliver exactly what our clients expect. We relish the opportunity to be a positive force in the local community while delivering world-class solutions backed by STACK’s global platform.”
The Stack Infrastructure was launched by investment firm IPI Partners in 2019 after the merger of Infomart and T5 assets. And, recently acquired and rebranded Supernap Italia, Safe Host, and Digiplex.
Liederbach’s Mayor, Eva Söllner, said, “The Municipality of Liederbach is proud to welcome its first data center campus and to facilitate an ever more connected world. We are confident that Stack will bring several short- and long-term advantages as well as new perspectives to our town and the area, so we welcome them and look forward to supporting their growth.”
