ITERCON boosts the data center sector in the Valencian Region

  • The company has a specific business line for the development of data centers with a value of more than 250 million euros.

The company specialized in design and construction, ITERCON, has participated in the meeting “A door to the Mediterranean” organized by the Spanish data center association, Spain DC, in the city of Valencia. The event brought together the main players in the sector in the country, and it was aimed at boosting the data center industry in the region and thus consolidate Spain as the main interconnection hub in southern Europe.

The company, of Valencian origin and with international presence, has joined the meeting in which it has positioned itself, once again, as the benchmark company in data center construction projects. The company led by Manuel Marín created a specific line for the development of data centers in 2020 and, since then, has not stopped reaping success.

Just four years after the launch of this area, the company’s buildings built and under construction will house more than 120 megawatts and it has an extensive portfolio that includes projects for clients such as CyrusOne, the European Space Agency (ESA), the Government of Spain and some of the hyperscale.

ITERCON’s team of data center specialists has led more than a dozen projects during this time. Constructions equipped with the latest technology that have been designed and executed applying the strictest standards of efficiency and sustainability. At present, the value of this line of business reaches 257 million euros and the company expects to continue growing in this direction.

 

Commitment to the origins

ITERCON’s Director of Contracting, Paula Sánchez, participated in one of the round tables that took place during the day, in which the current situation of the Valencian Community and its potential were the main topics. “Valencia is the answer to the growing demand of technology companies looking for new territories in which to grow”.

The participants in the debate did not hesitate to analyse the problems faced by companies that are finding it increasingly difficult to find professionals with specific training in this field. “From ITERCON we want to mitigate the problem in the search for talent by offering training to new generations through our chair with the UPV. We want to tell Valencian students that there are opportunities here to work in a sector that accelerates the economy,” said the director.

During her speech, Paula highlighted ITERCON’s intention to contribute the knowledge acquired during these years at an international level to the projects that come to the region.
