Czech telecoms firm České Radiokomunikace (CRA) has unveiled its data center at a broadcast tower site in Cukrák, outside Prague after investing tens of millions of crowns (around $422,000) in repurposing its former transmitter into its eighth data center.

Miloš MastnÍk, CEO at CRA, said: “Using existing buildings for new purposes that are based on our service offer is a trend we have been working on for several years. It also allows us to react relatively quickly to the market situation and prepare new capacities at the moment they are needed.”

MastnÍk added: “By using and modernizing the existing premises, we will also ensure a more efficient and gentle operation of the buildings. At the same time, all our data centers use 100 percent energy from renewable sources to cover their consumption, which is also in line with our long-term ESG strategy.”
