Demand for colocation thriving data center construction market in Europe

There is a growing demand for colocation spaces among sectors such as BFSI, media and entertainment, and government agencies. The major benefits of colocation and managed service providers toward the data center investment are 50% pre-leased under development projects, reduction in CAPEX and OPEX due to addition of energy-efficient infrastructure, the procurement of renewable power for data center operations, the installation of racks with high-power density, cloud connectivity, tapping edge market opportunities, providing higher bandwidth, and retention of existing customer base.

The data center construction market in Europe is growing due to the completion and under construction of 100 new colocation facilities and expansion projects.

In 2018, projects that were had opened and under construction added over four million square feet of estimated data center space and generated over 750 MW of power capacity in Western Europe. Equinix, Interxion, Digital Realty, NTT (e-Shelter), and CyrusOne (Zenium) are the major colocation investors in the region. In 2018, Equinix announced to invest in eight new facilities in Western Europe, Nordic, and Central Europe, which are expected to operate by the end of 2019.

Increasing automation in datacenters

Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology is helping data centers to be more efficient and environment-friendly. In 2016, Google implemented DeepMind AI in its data centers for end-to-end monitoring and automation of its facilities. This has resulted in a 15% power saving cost and around 40% savings by cooling systems in its data centers.

It is expected that over 90% of hyperscale facilities will be managed through AI by 2024.

However, the lack of skilled workforce in a few European countries will lead to the adoption of automation solutions in the data center market. Datacenter automation identifies the maintenance requirement of infrastructure to avoid operational failures. A majority of infrastructure vendors in the data center construction market in Europe are heavily investing in software solutions that monitor power and cooling infrastructure.

The data center construction market in Europe vendors include the following:

AECOM, Arup Group, Bruce Shaw, Cap Ingelec, DPR Construction, Etix Everywhere, Flex Enclosure, Future-tech, Jones Engineering, KMCS, LUPP Group, Mace group, Mercury engineering, NCC, Red Engineering, Skanska, SISK Group, and Structure Tone are the prominent data center construction contractors.
