AGRIPORT DATACENTER AREA
Europe’s largest high tech greenhouses are based at Agriport. In large scale greenhouses, like in datacenters, management of energy is the key to success. With a 20 kV-150 kV substation, the triple feed of 150 kV underground power lines and the proximity of the 300 MW Ariane Windpark the Agriport project is well equipped for the future.
Agriport is located just 30 car minutes north of Amsterdam, were 60% of all Forbes 2000 companies active in ICT have already established an office. Yet, Agriport is located in a low density populated area and has therefore less impact on the way people live and recreate. And compared to the urban Amsterdam area, the land prices are very competitive.
The companies at Agriport are interconnected in an ecosystem of industries that benefit most from world class infrastructure. The Agriport location therefore offers many advantages for large scale datacenter operations.
Starting in 2014, Microsoft has continuously been building their Cloud Datacenters in Agriport, Middenmeer. Their first datacenter became operational in 2015. In 2018, Google acquired 70 hectares of land in Middenmeer. Their first datacenter is operational since 2020.
