The project is part of an investment exceeding $10 billion earmarked for data center growth spanning fiscal years 2023-27 across key markets worldwide.

Spanning an extensive area of 10.8 hectares (approximately 26.6 acres), the new campus will house two data centers with a planned capacity of 96MW of critical IT load. Situated 30 kilometers west of Berlin, in the municipality of Brieselang, construction of the campus is slated to commence in 2025.

Currently, NTT DATA operates 48 data centers across seven countries in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region, boasting a cumulative critical IT load of over 429MW and a planned expansion of 212MW.

Doug Adams, Chief Executive Officer and President of NTT Global Data Centers, emphasized Berlin’s pivotal role in the company’s expansion trajectory, stating, “Berlin is an important market in our growing portfolio and expansion plans.”

Florian Winkler, Chief Executive Officer EMEA and Global Chief Operating Officer, NTT Global Data Centers, reiterated the company’s commitment to expanding its footprint across Tier 1 and Tier 2 markets in Europe.

Florian Winkler highlighted the strategic significance of the Berlin expansion, leveraging past successes in developing and operating data centers across continental Europe and the UK, and emphasized the collaborative partnership with local authorities and stakeholders.
