POLAND Warsaw an emerging data centre hotspot - C&W

Technology
Cushman & Wakefield has identified Berlin, Reykjavik, Oslo, Warsaw, Zurich, Milan, Vienna, Madrid and Prague as emerging European hotspots for data centre development.

The European data centre market has long been dominated by the ‘FLAP-D’ markets (Frankfurt, London, Amsterdam, Paris and Dublin), where more the construction of centres with a capacity of more than 500 MW is underway, but due to physical limitations, including a lack of energy to power the centres, limited stock and the need to be closer to regional users, a number of secondary markets are now emerging.

Berlin has the largest anticipated growth over the next five to ten years, from 45 MW to 199 MW (+342 pct), followed by Reykjavik, Oslo and Warsaw 64 MW to 128 MW (+100 pct). This would also give Warsaw the third largest capacity, above Oslo but below Reykjavik (212 MW) and Berlin.

Warsaw has received considerable interest of late from hyperscalers, developers and across the greater ecosystem, as each determines how best to service Central and Eastern Europe. Warsaw has attracted considerable investment from international companies, headlined by Microsoft’s recent decision to invest over USD 1 bln in local infrastructure, training and cloud services for enterprises and government. Of note is American hyperscale operator Vantage, which plans on entering the market in 2021 with the first phase of a campus that will span 64 MW at full build-out – double the current market size.

Prague has also been identified by C&W as an emerging secondary market, which it predicts will have a capacity of 41 MW over the next five to ten years.
