Verne Global, a provider of sustainable data center solutions, has announced that it is expanding its 40-acre data center campus by 10MW of capacity. This will be funded by $50m from Digital 9 Infrastructure plc (D9), the investment trust which recently acquired Verne.

In an effort to “optimize its delivery” of “sustainable high intensity compute” at scale while fitting out the new data center space, it is partnering with Integra Mission Critical.

Discussing the partnership, John Kolar, Principal at Integra Mission Critical, commented: “Verne Global’s facility has been built from the ground up for highly specialist data center services that are sustainable, scalable and bespoke. These mutual principles make our companies a natural fit and we’re so excited to be teaming up and putting our decades of experience in solution-driven engineering to good use to provide a quality turnkey infrastructure solution for the new space.”

Dominic Ward, CEO at Verne Global, commenting on the expansion, said: “We’re seeing sector after sector looking to move into high performance analytics environments and it’s exciting to scale our campus again alongside new and existing customers to meet that need. It’s great to also take this first step into the future as part of the D9 Infrastructure platform, and we are all eagerly looking forward to what comes next.”

Speaking about D9’s supporting role, Thor Johnsen, Head of Digital Infrastructure at Triple Point, D9’s investment manager, said: “We are proud to support Verne Global and play a part in bringing its vision for the future into reality.”

Adding: “Powered by Iceland’s abundant green power, Verne Global’s expanded data center will be even better placed to provide resilient digital infrastructure that offers a true reduction in carbon emissions for its customers alongside long-term economic and sustainable stability.”
