New capacity expected to come online by end of Q2 2016
Interxion has announced a major expansion of its European operations in four cities. New data centers will be built in Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Dublin, while Frankfurt gets expanded. The three new data centers will have a maximum capacity of approximately 11,900 sq m (128,000 sq ft).
Interxion plans to expand its facilities in Frankfurt by constructing the final two phases of its FRA10 data center (FRA10.3 and FRA10.4), each new phase of which will provide approximately 1,200 sq m (13,000 sq ft) of equipped space. On completion, FRA10 will have approximately 4,800 sq m (52,000 sq ft) of equipped space and access to approximately 10MW of customer-available power.

In Amsterdam, Interxion will build its eighth data centre (AMS8) which, when fully constructed, will provide approximately 8,000 sq m (86,000 sq ft) of equipped space and a total of approximately 15MW of customer-available power. The build will be done in six phases, each of which will provide approximately 1,300 sq m (14,000 sq ft) of equipped space. The first two phases are scheduled to open by the fourth quarter of 2016.
AMS8 will be located on Interxion’s Amsterdam campus at Schiphol Rijk, which currently provides access to more than 40 carriers and ISPs, as well as two Internet exchanges. The capital expenditure associated with the first two phases is expected to be approximately €50 million.
Interxion will build its third data centre in Dublin (DUB3). When fully constructed, DUB3 will provide a total of approximately 2,300 sqm of equipped space in four phases and total customer-available power of approximately 5MW. It will be built on property owned by Interxion and will provide access to nearly 40 carriers and ISPs, as well as the Irish Internet Exchange which is based at our existing Dublin campus. The first two phases of DUB3, which will provide a total of approximately 1,200 sqm of equipped space, are scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2016. Capital expenditure associated with the first two phases of DUB3 is expected to be approximately €28 million.
Interxion will build its second data centre in Copenhagen (CPH2). When fully constructed, CPH2 will provide a total of approximately 1,600 sqm of equipped space and a customer-power density of approximately 1.5kW per sqm. CPH2 will be built on land next to CPH1 that is owned by Interxion and it will provide access to more than 40 carriers and ISPs as well as the two Internet exchanges that are based in CPH1. The first phase of CPH2, of approximately 500 sqm, is scheduled to open in the third quarter of 2016. Capital expenditure associated with the first phase of CPH2 is expected to be approximately €4 million.
