The facility will be fully powered by renewable electricity and will feature energy-efficient operations and measures to ensure sustainability, including operating with an ultra-low design PUE. Heat will be recovered and reused across the campus, preserving and utilising important resources, according to the company.

It will also feature 2,500 square meters of green walls, ensuring improved air quality by filtering pollutants, increasing biodiversity by providing a habitat for wildlife, and reducing noise.

"It is a great privilege for CyrusOne to mark this important milestone and our ongoing development and expansion in Germany alongside such important regional leaders," said CyrusOne Germany. "We are tremendously proud of what this development stands for, with sustainability and biodiversity central to the design and operation of the data center."
