In response to growing demand, Global Switch has begun construction on Stage 1 of its new data centre in Amsterdam.

The 32,000 sq m data centre, Global Switch Amsterdam East, will be built immediately adjacent to the existing Amsterdam West facility located in the Slotervaart/Overtoomseveld district, close to the main Dutch cable infrastructure, the financial district and city centre.

Energy efficiency is at the core of the design. Amsterdam East will incorporate the latest technologies such a flooded room cooling design with hot aisle containment allowing flexible IT rack load deployment. The cooling will be generated using a free-cooling water-based cooling system and will allow the heat to be exported to the local community.

Mercury is delighted to have been appointed directly by the client and will partner with local & international supply-chain teams to deliver this fantastic project.
