US data center firm Prime  has acquired a 7.6-acre site at Calle de la Pedriza 1 in Alcobendas, close to Equinix, CyrusOne, and Data4 facilities as it plans expansion into Spain. 

“With 44MW of take-up in 2023, power challenges limiting FLAPD markets, and information governance mandating in-country data center presence, it is clear that Madrid is poised for strong growth over the foreseeable future,” said Nicholas Laag, founder and CEO of Prime Data Centers. “Alcobendas is an ideal location for Prime’s first data center in Madrid with an established ecosystem that offers easy access to fiber and experienced, skilled labor.”

"Having spent the last twenty-five years in Madrid, it is encouraging to see the hard work and preparation put in by so many local stakeholders result in readiness to capitalize on the recent surge in demand,” said Michael Wall, SVP of development and construction for Prime in Europe. “Prime believes this strong foundation will sustain data center growth in Madrid further validating its place alongside the most influential digital infrastructure markets in Europe. We are excited to contribute to the success story.”
