Prime Data Opens New Data Centre In Madrid, Alcobendas

Prime Data Centers, a leading data centre provider, has announced a new facility in Spain to address AI and hyperscale cloud density requirements

Prime Data Centers, a leading wholesale data centre provider, has announced Madrid will be the location of its new 26,000 square-metre data centre.

Approximately 7.6 acres of land in Alcobendas has been allocated to develop a facility capable of delivering 40 megawatts of power. The facility- given the moniker Prime Madrid- will address the density requirements of artificial intelligence and hyperscale cloud, to meet rising consumer demand.

Alcobendas, located in Madrid, provides 41% of Spain’s live, colocation power consumption and is the largest in-country data centre ecosystem. 

"With forty-four megawatts of take-up in 2023, power challenges limiting FLAPD markets, and information governance mandating in-country data centre presence, it is clear that Madrid is poised for strong growth over the foreseeable future,"  said Nicholas Laag, Founder and CEO of Prime Data Centers.

"Alcobendas is an ideal location for Prime's first data centre in Madrid with an established ecosystem that offers easy access to fibre and experienced, skilled labour."

Prime Madrid will be located at Calle de la Pedriza 1, in close proximity to local Internet Exchange Points for customer network optimization. Madrid’s central location serves a large population base, acting as the central network relay point for Portugal and coastal regions.

The nation overall has a notably strong hyperscale demand base, representing an estimated 74% of 2023 take-up across colocation and self-build data centres. 

Michael Wall, Senior Vice President of Development and Construction for Prime in Europe

"Having spent the last 25 years in Madrid, it is encouraging to see the hard work and preparation put in by so many local stakeholders result in readiness to capitalise on the recent surge in demand," commented Michael Wall, Senior Vice President of Development and Construction for Prime in Europe. 

"Prime believes this strong foundation will sustain data centre growth in Madrid further validating its place alongside the most influential digital infrastructure markets in Europe. We are excited to contribute to the success story."

Prime aims to open another data centre in October of this year in Los Angeles. The company recently announced nearly 500 megawatts across Phoenix, Chicago and Denmark.

The data centre operates a three-plus gigawatt roadmap which includes twenty-two owned options across the United States and Europe.
