Colocation company CyrusOne recently completed the shell and core of its first data center in Spain and threw a traditional flag-flying ceremony to celebrate it. The MAD1 facility, situated on a five-acre site, is a two-story facility with an IT capacity of 18MW across 6,000 square meters. This facility is expected to use 100 percent renewable energy, of which around 100kW will be generated on-site through roof-mounted photovoltaic panels and will use an air-cooled closed-loop chiller.

Matt Pullen, EVP and managing director of Europe at CyrusOne, said, “Spain is the fifth largest economy with the third highest renewable energy generation capacity in Europe, which demonstrates an enormous opportunity for us. With growing demand for enterprise cloud outsourcing across the Spanish enterprise community and relatively low levels of supply, it’s an opportune time for us to enter the Madrid market.”

Manuel Marín, CEO of Itercon, added, “It is a pleasure to face such a challenging project together with CyrusOne as a trusted partner, especially since the operator and the data center design focuses on sustainability and consideration for its environmental impact. We are grateful to the suppliers we are working with on this project who ensure the safety and quality of the build. We are delighted with the progress of the work and our contribution to meeting the demand for this type of facility in the area.”
