Vantage Data Centers has revealed that it will be spending €1 billion on a new data center campus development in Dublin.  The campus will be built at Profile Park, Grange Castle, a data center hub nine miles south of Dublin which is already home to the likes of Google, Digital Realty, and CyrusOne.

David Howson, president for the EMEA region at Vantage Data Centers, said: “Throughout this development, there will be a significant positive economic impact to the community as we employ more than 1,100 individuals during peak construction and create approximately 165 jobs to operate the campus.

“Vantage is committed to being a good neighbor where we build and operate data centers, and we are eager to continue working with community organizations such as Round Tower GAA Club, Newcastle Tidy Towns, St. Francis Football Club, Ballyboden St. Enda’s GAA, St. Ronan’s National School in Deansrath and others.”

Vantage said its on-site plant will support current capacity constraints “by alleviating pressure on energy demand from the grid while achieving optimal efficiency and power output. It is also capable of funneling power back to the grid, further supporting power availability in the Dublin area,” Vantage said. “In addition, Vantage plans to deploy HVO in place of conventional diesel fuel throughout its fleet of backup generators and is working to obtain corporate Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) for green energy, such as biomethane from local providers.”
