CyrusOne has confirmed plans for a new data center in Frankfurt, Germany.

The company this week announced plans to build its next data center in Frankfurt, named FRA6, following the acquisition of the Europark office site in Sossenheim.

Set on 27,500 sqm (296,000 sq ft), FRA6 will offer a total IT capacity of 72MW over four floors, with each level delivering 18MW. Timelines for development weren’t shared.

“The acquisition of the Europark site further demonstrates CyrusOne’s commitment to Frankfurt as the digital capital of Europe and our ongoing European expansion. We are continually assessing the market with a view to increasing our presence in the Frankfurt area,” said Andreas Paduch, area VP of European sales at CyrusOne. “Initial discussions with hyperscale customers and other large enterprises have revealed significant early interest in FRA6 and we look forward to continuing these as we progress the build. This underscores both our expertise in this market and our ability to consistently deliver solutions that are instrumental to our customers’ business success and expansion goals.”
