Stack Infrastructure has acquired a 70,000sqm site in Germany from Coca-Cola Europacific Partners Deutschland (CCEP DE) to develop an 80MW data centre campus.

The new project, at the former bottling and distribution plant site in Liederbach, will enable Stack to fulfil strategic client requirements and provide essential capacity in the city’s constrained data centre market.  

Focused on energy efficiency and sustainability, the campus will accommodate four facilities which will contribute to a circular economy through the deployment of green technologies such as rainwater harvesting and the provision of excess heat to a proposed local residential development, Stack said.

John Eland, CEO of Stack EMEA, said: “Stack prides itself on being a trusted partner to our clients. We recognise that there is an overwhelming demand for fast, flexible, resilient, and efficient data centre infrastructure in Frankfurt, so we’ve taken up the call to deliver exactly what our clients expect.”

“We relish the opportunity to be a positive force in the local community while delivering world-class solutions backed by STACK’s global platform,” he added.  

“The Municipality of Liederbach is proud to welcome its first data centre campus and to facilitate an ever more connected world,” said Eva Söllner, the mayor of Liederbach.

“We are confident that Stack will bring several short- and long-term advantages as well as new perspectives to our town and the area so look forward to supporting their growth.” 

Stack has been establishing a scalable presence across EMEA since it first launched in the region earlier this year while employing the strong regional expertise of its teams. The Frankfurt campus is the company’s eighth European location, joining Stack’s growing EMEA portfolio in Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Milan, Geneva, Avenches, and Zurich.
