The company said its data hall has been expanded to accommodate 450 racks across 16,500 sq ft (1,532 sqm), upgrading the site’s IT capacity from 1.4MW to 2.3MW.

The refurbishment includes an additional 14,500 sq ft (1,350 sqm) of data hall space, available as either fully fitted or on a build-to-suit basis.

The new data hall has a reduced PUE of 1.25 from 1.6 .

The refurbishment of the three-story facility in Amsterdam Central included the retrofitting of variable frequency drives into the cooling system.

In total, CLAR’s PvV facility spans 119,145 sq ft (11,069 sqm) and provides direct access to Amsterdam Internet Exchange. CLAR first acquired the data center in 2021.

CLAR is a subsidiary of the Singaporean real estate group CapitaLand. The group has 27 data centers across eight countries, spanning the Netherlands, UK, France, Switzerland, Singapore, India, China, and South Korea – including 15 data centers owned by CLAR.

CapitaLand said it currently delivers over 800MW of IT capacity, providing colocation, build-to-suit, and network-related services.

At the end of last year, CapitaLand Group announced it had secured a loan for a data center in Navi Mumbai, India.

Data center operators such as Equinix, Lumen, and AtlasEdge all operate data centers less than a mile from CapitaLand’s Amsterdam facility.
