STACK Infrastructure opens third data centre in Milan

STACK is growing its presence in Italy with the addition of a new 10MW facility, alongside the acquisition of land for the expansion of its Milan campuses

STACK Infrastructure, a digital infrastructure partner and leading global developer and operator of data centres, has announced the opening of its third data centre in Milan (Siziano). 

The new facility runs on 100% renewable energy, utilises multiple built-in energy-saving features including photovoltaic panels and heat isolation infrastructure, and prequalifies for LEED Gold certification.

It was constructed in less than 12 months on a land parcel it acquired in 2021, bringing the company’s live data centre capacity in Italy to 120,000 square metres (12 hectares/30 acres) and more than 50MW of power. 

“We believe Italy’s data centre landscape is at the outset of a significant growth trend. Our latest investment in the region is a key component to our EMEA expansion strategy and solidifies our position as our clients’ trusted development and operational partner in the markets most essential to their own growth,” said John Eland, CEO of STACK EMEA.

Expanding facilities in Milan 

In addition to its live facilities, STACK owns more than 100,000 square metres (10 hectares/25 acres) of expansion land in Siziano capable of supporting over 80MW of total power, including a new parcel in proximity to its existing campuses acquired earlier this year.

The completion of the latest Milan facility further reinforces STACK’s positioning as a market leader in Italy and is part of STACK’s growth strategy across the EMEA region, partnering with leading hyperscale and enterprise clients to provide flexible, best-in-class data center solutions to address their evolving requirements.

“As digitalisation accelerates in Italy in both the public and private sectors, and as hyperscalers continue to broaden their availability, we are ever more aware of the increasing need for new capacity. The opening of our new facility demonstrates that STACK has once again benefitted from its solid local relationships to rapidly deliver scalable, sustainable capacity for our clients,” explained Sherif Rizkalla, CEO of STACK EMEA – Italy.
