The Southeast Asian giant K2 Data Centres has submitted plans for two more large data centres at Ballycoolin in northwest Dublin.
According to a report in the Times, K2 is set to invest hundreds of millions of euros into this project. This will involve building two three-storey data centres of almost 29,000 sq metres each.
K2 already has a presence in Ballycoolin but wants to develop a “hyper-scale campus” in Dublin.
In order for K2 to achieve its goal, they would demolish industrial units and then build the two data centre blocks, a two-storey office building, 32 emergency generators and will also create parking for 160 cars.
K2 is still waiting for approval from the Fingal County Council. There has also been another data centre planning application submitted to the same council from US-based MIK Developments.
