EdgeConnex initially built a 4,500sqm data centre in 2016 and later extended that facility further before adding a new 1,500sqm data hall in 2017
EdgeConnex Ireland (it's Irish subsidiary), applied in August 2018 for permission to build two new data halls, totaling almost 6,000sqm, on a 6.5 hectare site at Grange Castle business park.
The latest plan for the business park will double the size of its Irish footprint as part of a phased investment strategy in this country.
The first building in Dublin is drawing 10MW from the national grid plus 8MW from natural-gas turbines, which are supplementing its power supply while the utility company is building out more infrastructure to support it
