Merlin Properties plans four green Data Centres in Spain and Portugal
Iberian real estate company Merlin Properties is branching into data centres, with four sites to be built in partnership with Edged Energy, a green infrastructure start-up.
The four data centres, which will run efficiently and use no water, will be located on existing land belonging to Merlin, in Madrid, Bilbao, Barcelona and Lisbon.
The building partner, Edge Energy, is a newcomer promising "net-zero digital infrastructure" for the Edge. It's part of an umbrella group called Endeavour, which was set up early in 2020, by Jakob Carnemark, previously a founder of data centre provider Aligned.
