Barcelona DC Cluster

Data Centers from IBM (2012), T-Systems (2013, video) and SILC-Immobles (2012 and 2015) are already operative in the park (total investment: € 217 million).

In addition, the Barcelona Synchrotron Park (BSP) offers 42,000 m2 of land especially adapted to house other Data Centres to position the park as a privileged location to set up DCs in southern Europe (presentation):
  • First-level electric infrastructure (high capacity, high reliability, possibility of redundant power supply from cogeneration),
  • Top-quality telecommunications infrastructure (7 operators with own networks already installed and different access points),
  • Clean ambient air and quite fresh and dry climate compatible with free-cooling technologies,
  • Minimal risks (flooding, earthquakes, fires, theft),
  • Minimal energy costs (outsourced cold production plants).

In this context, BSP is looking for investors for the singular Barcelona DC Cluster project (here) that offers:
  • Reduced operating costs thanks to outsourced management of support infrastructures and high energy efficiency
  • TIER III certified critical support infrastructures
  • Reduced implementation time (Time to Market)
  • Reduced financial risks thanks to minimisation of investment and divestment costs
  • Maximisation of IT sales floor area and power density
  • High modularity and scalability

Partner: BSP draws on the technology assessment of B-Barcelona Consulting/BGC, an engineering company specialized, among other things, in the design of mission critical infrastructures and the implementation of energy efficiency strategies as free cooling, direct-to-chip water cooling etc.
