Data centre to share excess heat with external buildings

Data centre services company Equinix is to utilise ground wells for hot and cold storage for its third International Business Exchange data center in Amsterdam.

Excess heat from the data center will be used to warm nearby buildings and for other third-party uses. The project will be built in phases, with the first phase adding approximately 1,400 cabinet equivalents. When the second and final phase is completed, the IBX will house approximately 2,800 cabinet equivalents.

The first phase of AM3 is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2012. The new IBX will be located in the Amsterdam Science Park, one of the most carrier-dense locations in Europe with more than 150 networks, and when completed will provide approximately 6,400 square meters of customer floor space.
