Vantage Data Centers has announced plans for the development of a 48 MW data centre campus in London.
The campus marks a £500 million investment by Vantage, with the site set to comprise 430,000 sqft across two 24 MW multi-story data centres once complete. The first facility is scheduled to open at the end of 2024, and comes after Vantage introduced a corporate office in central London in December of 2021 to support the company’s expansion in EMEA.
This announcement coincides with Vantage’s completion of the first phase of a second 40 MW facility at its Cardiff campus. Once fully built out, the 46-acre Cardiff campus will provide three data centres offering 148 MW capacity combined.
“Vantage has experienced rapid growth over the past three years as we continue developing state-of-the-art data centre campuses across EMEA,” said Antoine Boniface, President, EMEA at Vantage Data Centers.
“With London being one of the largest data centre markets in the world, this expansion further solidifies Vantage’s role at the forefront of the digital infrastructure revolution. With relatively little inventory available in London and requirements on the rise, we are ideally positioned to deliver for our customers.”
“The continuing demand for data centres in London offers a prime opportunity for Vantage Data Centers to make its entrance into the highly-coveted market,” added Tim Kay, Deputy Director for Technology, Department for International Trade in London.
“Vantage’s presence in London will play a key role in enabling leading technology enterprises with additional IT capacity to support digital transformation initiatives and cloud adoption.”
