NDC-GARBE rolls out its first project in Hanau (Frankfurt/Main area)
Hamburg/Munich, 21 October 2020 – One year after joining forces NDC-GARBE Data Centers Europe rolls out its first project.
Focusing on the European market, its first project is going vertical for a 10.000m2 data center in Hanau, about 20 km from the Frankfurt DE-CIX. The 4-story building will follow NDC-GARBE’s principles of modularity, efficiency, and sustainability, with the aim to decarbonize digitization.
“We are very proud to take this important milestone at NDC-GARBE and to create a significant footprint in the Frankfurt region,” stated Spyridon Linardakis, Managing Director of NDC-GARBE. “Our focus now is on the execution and delivery in time and on budget.”
“This project is testament to the successful bundle of strengths in both, the data center as well as the real estate sector,” subsumes Peter Pohlschroeder, Managing Director of NDC-GARBE. “The retaining market momentum will accelerate our developments in Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich, and Hamburg.”
The Hanau project is being developed in collaboration with Exyte and Royal Haskoning. Greenberg Traurig LLP acted as legal counsel for the owner.
The data center will be a TIER III+, 100% concurrently maintainable. The project features a high level of modularity and prefabrication with positive effects on TCO and environment.
Additional considerations have been made on the overall sustainability of the project. The data center’s demand will be matched with clean energy on a year by year, and it will use a flexible combination of adiabatic and dry cooling mode to mitigate risk of water scarcity taking climate change progression into consideration. Moreover, it will be energy and water efficient, with market leading predicted average seasonal PUE and WUE.
Besides the Hanau site, NDC-GARBE is not only offering data center developments in Germany’s major cities, such as Frankfurt, Berlin, Munich and Hamburg but also driving renewable energy and storage concepts for data centers in Austria, Germany and Sweden in order to minimize power prices and carbon footprint.
