The €230 million project will be powered by 100% photovoltaic energy generated by solar cells, and it will also be eco-friendly, the developers say, “as it will have large batteries to reduce energy costs at peak times, aerothermal ones.” for cooling and will use building materials with a neutral carbon footprint”.
Jose María Guilleuma (pictured), data center director at real estate company Colliers, which has advised BWB, said: “This transaction is the best example of the excellent synergies that can be created between the logistics market, the data center market and the energy sector .”
The project includes the development of four solar systems and a data center. They will have a peak output of 178 MW, said BWB, which works through its subsidiary Progressum Energy Developments. “These systems will also be used to self-supply the new data center that Progressum will develop itself on a plot of land in the Huesca logistics platform.”
“Power is a critical and differentiating element in data center development,” said Guilleuma. “Progressum brings its expertise to photovoltaic projects and integrates renewable energy generation as the backbone of its offering to the data center market.”
