AMSTERDAM 30 May 2013. INTERXION HOLDING NV (NYSE:INXN, news), a leading European provider of carrier and cloud neutral colocation data centre services, today announced that it will construct its eighth data centre in Frankfurt (“FRA 8”). The new data center is in response to continued demand from customers seeking to benefit from Interxion’s Connectivity Hub, which contains over 150 directly popped carriers and Internet Service Providers (ISP”) as well as the core node for DE-CIX with its over 450 carrier and ISP connections. FRA 8 will be built in four phases, with each phase providing approximately 900 square meters of equipped space, and will be located on land owned by Interxion within its existing campus. Interxion has secured 6 MW of additional customer available power for FRA 8. The first phase is scheduled to be operational in the first half of 2014; the second phase is scheduled to be operational in 2015.
David Ruberg, Interxion’s Chief Executive Officer said: “The consistent demand we are experiencing in the Frankfurt market is driven by cloud service providers, digital media, and financial services customers attracted to our vibrant Connectivity Hub. We are prudently allocating capital in phases to respond to this demand from our communities of interest while maximising returns.”
The capital expenditure associated with the site preparation and the first two phases of FRA 8 is approximately €30 million. The anticipated spend in 2013 is included in the 2013 annual capital expenditure guidance previously provided by the Company.
