D9-backed Verne Global Invests $50m to Expand Data Center Campus by 10MW
Verne Global , provider of sustainable data center solutions for high intensity computing, recently acquired by Digital 9 Infrastructure plc (D9), today announced that it is expanding its 40-acre data center campus by a further 10MW of constructed power capacity. The expansion is backed by D9, the investment trust that focuses on sustainable digital infrastructure assets, which will fund the $50m development of new enterprise-class data center space.
Ideally located with access to abundant, low-cost renewable energy and a highly reliable national electrical grid, the Icelandic data center company continues to attract a range of enterprise customers as demand for high intensity compute sees sustained growth across industries. As more companies look to decarbonize their digital infrastructure by powering intensive applications such as artificial intelligence, mathematical modelling and predictive analytics with cleaner, greener energy, Verne Global is expanding now to meet contracted demand. The data center company’s best-in-class onsite technical and operations team will continue to use its specialized expertise to work around the clock to support and optimize the high density environments and workloads it houses.
“We’re seeing sector after sector looking to move into high performance analytics environments and it’s exciting to scale our campus again alongside new and existing customers to meet that need,” said Dominic Ward, CEO at Verne Global. “It’s great to also take this first step into the future as part of the D9 Infrastructure platform, and we are all eagerly looking forward to what comes next.”
“We are proud to support Verne Global and play a part in bringing its vision for the future into reality,” said Thor Johnsen, Head of Digital Infrastructure at Triple Point, D9’s investment manager. “Powered by Iceland’s abundant green power, Verne Global’s expanded data center will be even better placed to provide resilient digital infrastructure that offers a true reduction in carbon emissions for its customers alongside long-term economic and sustainable stability.”
As part of this expansion, Verne Global is partnering with Integra Mission Critical , the modular data center solutions provider, to optimize its delivery of sustainable high intensity compute at scale while fitting out the new data center space. Utilizing Integra’s solution-driven engineering expertise to implement modular data center infrastructure will allow Verne Global to increase sustainability measures in line with its core mission, while promoting scalability and safety, and decreasing cost.
“Verne Global’s facility has been built from the ground up for highly specialist data center services that are sustainable, scalable and bespoke,” said John Kolar, Principal at Integra Mission Critical. “These mutual principles make our companies a natural fit and we’re so excited to be teaming up and putting our decades of experience in solution-driven engineering to good use to provide a quality turnkey infrastructure solution for the new space.”
SC21 delegates can visit Verne Global at the Data Centers by Iceland stand (#1819) at SC21 in St Louis, MO, 15-19 November, 2021.
