Roofing Ceremony for e-shelter Datacenter Vienna
150 guests, representatives from the City of Vienna and project participants celebrate the Roofing Ceremony for the e-shelter Datacenter Vienna today.
On a 29,000 sqm site at the “Wienerberg” the e-shelter Datacenter Vienna 1 will comprise altogether three buildings and will offer a gross floor area of over 24,000 sqm and a total of 8,400 sqm data center space. The total investment for this project amounts 140 Million Euro. In mid April 2015 the first tenant will move into its data center space. In mid June 2015, exactly one year after start of construction, the data center will be put into operation. The new buildings for e-shelter’s other data centers in Zurich and Frankfurt 3 were timely put into operations within 12 months after start of construction.
In the presence of the district manager, Josef Kaindl, and Rupprecht Rittweger, CEO of e-shelter, and further guests the building shell receives its traditional topping-out wreath.
“We would like to thank the City of Vienna for their constructive support, and we are pleased that our investment will further strengthen Vienna as an information hub between Western and Eastern Europe”, says Rupprecht Rittweger, CEO and founder of e-shelter.
e-shelter Datacenter Vienna will have an electricity capacity of 20 MW, supplied by two different substations. At least ten different carriers will ensure the network connection. Not only the connectivity of the new building is redundant constructed but the new building fulfills all requirements of environmental protection as well: the data center is operated using power from renewable energies, the waste heat will be used to heat neighboring buildings and it is designed to achieve the international recognized Green Building Certification award level, LEED platinum.
