Vantage Data Centers announced the development of a second data center campus (LHR2) in London for an investment of £250 million.
Earlier, Vantage Data Centers announced a £500 million 48MW campus (LHR1) in London.
LHR2 will consist of a single data center that will deliver 20MW of IT capacity across 194,000 square feet (18,000 square meters) to customers in early 2025.
“Expanding our presence in London, the largest of the FLAP data center markets and one of the largest global markets, enables Vantage to meet unprecedented demand for critical IT capacity and helps strengthen the region’s digital infrastructure,” said Antoine Boniface, president, EMEA for Vantage Data Centers.
Vantage will invest more than £750 million into the local economy. The addition of LHR2 marks Vantage’s third campus in the United Kingdom, including the company’s Cardiff campus, one of the largest in Europe, located 160 kilometers from London.
These three campuses will offer customers 216MW of IT capacity across more than 2.6 million square feet (244,000 square meters), expanding Vantage’s EMEA portfolio to 12 campuses across the region.
