Client: Facebook Inc.
Sector: Data Centre
Area: c.56,000 sqm
Location: Clonee, Co. Meath, Ireland
The Clonee data center will be Facebook's first in Ireland and follows Luleå, in Sweden, as their second in Europe. The facility will become part of the infrastructure that enables billions of people to connect with the people and things they care about on Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and more.
Clonee will be packed full of cutting-edge technology, making it one of the most advanced, efficient and sustainable data centers in the world. All the racks, servers, and other components have been designed and built from scratch as part of the Open Compute Project, an industry-wide coalition of companies dedicated to creating energy and cost-efficient infrastructure solutions and sharing them as open source.
Facebook's data center in Clonee will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy, thanks to Ireland’s wind power resources. This will help Facebook to reach their goal of powering 50 percent of their infrastructure with clean and renewable energy by the end of 2018.
