Vantage Data Centers has announced that it is to develop a 48MW data center campus in London. This move will see the company enter the London market for the first time with this £500 million ($600 million) project, its 11th EMEA campus.

The company has announced that LHR, will total 430,000 sq ft (40,000 sqm) across two 24MW multi-story data centers, and offer 300W-per-sq ft (3.23kW/sqm) average densities. Located in the five-acre PowerGate neighborhood of North Acton, the facility will reportedly be powered by the National Grid and use a closed-loop chilled water system for cooling.

Speaking about the project, Antoine Boniface, president of EMEA at Vantage Data Centers, said: “Vantage has experienced rapid growth over the past three years as we continue developing state-of-the-art data center campuses across EMEA.” Boniface explained that as London is “one of the largest data center markets in the world,” the expansion “further solidifies” Vantage’s role at the forefront of the digital infrastructure revolution. He added: “With relatively little inventory available in London and requirements on the rise, we are ideally positioned to deliver for our customers.”

Meanwhile, Tim Kay, deputy director for technology at the Department for International Trade in London, commented: “Vantage’s presence in London will play a key role in enabling leading technology enterprises with additional IT capacity to support digital transformation initiatives and cloud adoption.”
