Two new data center projects totaling 40-45MW are reportedly coming to Romania. These projects are expected to cost about  €500 million though the details about the companies involved, project location and scope, or timelines weren’t shared.

"In 2024 we are already talking about two investments in such projects in Romania, with a cumulative capacity of 40-45MW and we are waiting for the PUZ [local planning] for them," Stephen Beard, global head of data centers at Knight Frank, told Ziarul Financiar . "We are talking about investments of over €400 million in fit-out and total investments of €500 million in data centers."

He continued: “If we look at Romania's population and take into account the expansion of artificial intelligence and the migration to the cloud, we have the potential of 100MW data centers in Romania, compared to about 10 we currently have in Bucharest. We are talking about possible investments of €900 million in total."
