Irish data centre company EngineNode has unveiled proposals for a huge data storage campus near Bracetown, County Meath.

The 25-hectare site earmarked for the project is close to a data centre owned by Facebook in Clonee.

EngineNode has applied to the county council for a 10-year permission for a total of four two-storey data centre buildings with a combined floor space of nearly 92,200 square metres.

The scheme is expected to be built in four phases and will include offices and an electricity substation.

Meanwhile, in a separate development involving the country’s burgeoning IT sector, An Bord Pleanála has upheld Kildare County Council’s decision to grant planning permission for Intel’s proposed new €3.63 billion manufacturing facility at its Leixlip chip plant, following an unsuccessful third-party appeal.
