Dutch firm Interxion has said it is planning a multimillion-euro investment in a third data centre for Dublin.

The 'Sunday Independent' reported plans for the centre in March of last year.

The first two phases of the data centre, in the Grange Castle Business Park, are due to open later this year, along with expansions in Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Copenhagen.

Karl Mulhall, managing director of Interxion Ireland, said the company was experiencing growth from new and existing clients.

"They are looking for connectivity and security from their providers and our reputation and expertise in this area provide us with a unique opportunity for growth. This announcement demonstrates our continued investment in the Irish market."

Other companies, including Microsoft, Amazon and Google, have also invested heavily in data centres in Ireland.
