EdgeConneX is developing a data center campus outside Brussels, Belgium.

The EQT-backed company announced this week it is developing a data center campus in Ternat. The site is expected to be ready for service in early Q1 of 2023. The first building will consist of four data halls that can support more than 20MW of capacity.

"Our legacy is to quickly and successfully deliver data center infrastructure anywhere our customers require," said Dick Theunissen, managing director for EMEA of EdgeConneX. "As we continue to expand both our Edge platform and hyperscale campuses globally, our data center to be built in Brussels will give us capabilities to meet our customers' requirements for hyperlocal and hyperscale data center capacity in the vital and growing Benelux region."

The new campus will be the company’s seventh market in EMEA; EdgeConneX has facilities in Ireland, Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Israel, and Poland. Brussels will be the company’s 40th market overall.

Microsoft recently announced plans for a Belgian Azure cloud region, while Google last month bought 50 hectares to expand its presence in the country. Interxion’s third facility in Brussels is due to open soon.
