Delivering colocation excellence: Mercury supports Digital Realty’s development of 40MW FRA33

Mercury is proud to be a key partner in the development of Digital Realty’s state-of-the-art FRA33 data centre in Hattersheim, near Frankfurt, Germany.

Situated within our client’s expansive Hattersheim Campus (Digital Park Hattersheim), this cutting-edge facility is poised to deliver an impressive 40MWs of IT capacity, encompassing 16,000 square metres of world-class white space.

As Europe’s most experienced colocation data centre provider, Mercury consistently rises to meet the challenges of the ever-growing market, delivering on our clients’ requirements and commitments. Our role in the development of FRA33 is comprehensive, and encompasses a variety of electrical, mechanical and CSA services.

This large-scale project is divided into four phases, with separate technical infrastructure packages being handed over in each stage. As the prime contractor, we are leading the initial phase of the infrastructure package, delivering the first 10MWs of power to this cutting-edge facility by Q3 2023. The remaining stages will be completed over the subsequent period, and the facility is scheduled to go live in Q4 2026.
