Vantage Data Centers to build new campus in West Dublin

A new €1 billion multi-phase data centre campus is being planned for west Dublin, creating 165 new permanent jobs and more than 1,000 during construction.

US based Vantage Data Centers is developing 52MW of IT capacity in the first two phases of the facility at Profile Park in Grange Castle, which it is aiming to open later this year.

The 22 acre site has space and power for a third centre in the future.

The company says it will power the new campus using an on-site 100MVA multi-fuel generation plant.

It will be able to run a combination of fuels, primarily hydrotreated vegetable oil and gas fed from the grid.

“Given the temporary power constraints in Dublin, this on-site generation plant will support current capacity constraints by alleviating pressure on energy demand from the grid while achieving optimal efficiency and power output,” the firm said in a statement.

“The generation plant is also capable of funneling power back to the grid, further supporting power availability in the Dublin area,” the company said.

“In addition, Vantage plans to deploy HVO in place of conventional diesel fuel throughout its fleet of back-up generators and is working to obtain corporate power purchase agreements (CPPAs) for green energy, such as biomethane from local providers,” it added.

The campus will be Vantage Data Center’s 14th in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, spread across seven countries.

The company, which claims to be committed to environmental responsibility and achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030, says the data centres will use almost no water for the purposes of cooling.

“Throughout this development, there will be a significant positive economic impact to the community as we employ more than 1,100 individuals during peak construction and create approximately 165 jobs to operate the campus,” said David Howson, president, EMEA at Vantage Data Centers.

News of the investment was welcomed by South Dublin Chamber which said it reflected the company’s confidence in the area.

“Vantage Data Centers will not only be contributing to local employment and taxation but will be ensuring the safety of our data and future-proofing business for years to come with this major investment in technology,” said Peter Byrne, the CEO of South Dublin Chamber.
