NEXUS, the first sustainable datacenter in Belgium
Nexus is the result of a unique collaboration between Ghelamco, Free University of Brussels (VUB), Brussels University Hospital (UZB) and Green Energy Park vzw.
Nexus offers a state of the art datacenter, covering a total floorspace of 11.500 square meters, with the highest standards in sustainability and will be triple certified:
- UPTIME Tier III certification
- BREEAM Excellent
- EDGE Advanced
"Datacenters are an important link in Flanders' energy transition and its evolution towards smart cities and systems. They form the cornerstone of a local resource community, sharing renewable energy, rainwater and recovered heat. This is precisely why we as developers are delighted to help shape the energy transition of this campus with this sustainable by design datacenter," says Michael Gheysens, the managing director of Ghelamco Belgium.
Additional to Nexus, Ghelamco is developing on the high-tech business and research campus more R&D-related real estate projects, covering in a first phase ca. 50.000 square meters.
