Keppel Data Centres, a 70-30 joint venture between Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation Ltd (Keppel T&T) and Keppel Land Limited have jointly acquired Keppel DC Frankfurt 1 (KDC FRA 1) in Frankfurt, Germany with the Alpha Data Centre Fund.
KDC FRA 1 is a two-storey facility sited on freehold land in the Am Martinzehnten Industrial Park, which is in close proximity to the city centre and Frankfurt Airport. Frankfurt is also the home of the DE-CIX Internet Exchange, the world’s largest internet exchange, ensuring low-latency and high-quality connectivity. The facility features a gross floor area of approximately 20,000 square metres and is fitted out to Uptime Tier III-equivalent specifications. The partially-occupied facility can currently support an IT load of 4.8 MW. With additional investment and planning consent, KDC FRA 1 will be able to draw additional power up to 40MVA to meet growing demand for quality data centre space in Germany.
