Switch Datacenters has opened a new 15-18 MW facility in Amsterdam, dubbed AMS4.

AMS4 has been built on the site of an existing logistics building at Amsterdam Science Park.

AMS4 features a modular design, utilising a closed loop cooling system. The facility will run on 100% green power and will use heat capture technology that will deliver waste heat to a new municipal heat grid in Diemen, providing heat for potentially thousands of households.

“Our new data centre sets a new standard for sustainability in the industry by redeveloping existing industrial buildings and being designed for heat delivery to the local community,” said Gregor Snip, CEO of Switch Datacenters.

“By reusing an existing building, we have been able to build faster, more sustainable and improved our own time record from build to operate a high-end data centre to under 22 months. AMS4 exemplifies our dedication to making data centres more environmentally friendly. Working together with local stakeholders from the start, we have delivered top performance to our customers. At the same time, we are contributing to local and national needs in terms of moving away from fossil fuels and delivering excess heat for use by domestic units.”

Switch Datacenters currently has over 200 MW of new capacity in and around Amsterdam in current development.
