DATA VILLAGE - 125 MW DATA CENTER CAMPUS ON A BROWNFIELD SITE IN CORBEIL-ESSONNES, PARIS
With this acquisition, LCP demonstrate its agility to cease singular opportunities and its capacity to manage heavy depollution and remediation activities to deliver large scale real estate solution for its business partners, while bringing a new life to the economic landscape for local communities. All achievable thanks to LCP team member’s dedication and rare technical, environmental and legal expertise.

LCP Responsibilities

Land Acquisition

As its first project after starting its activities in France, LCP acquired, in court via a bankruptcy procedure, a 14.4 ha brownfield site located 40km south of Paris within the municipalities of Corbeil-Essonnes and Le Coudray-Montceaux.

For more than 70 years, this site welcomed industrial production activities. IBM, followed by Altis have been producing semi-conductor electronic components for all sorts of industries (IT, car, etc…).

In 2018 Altis went bankrupt, their activities were bought by Xfab while the residual unused plot of land (with abandoned standing building on it) was sold to LCP.

Depollution and remediation works

When acquired, the site had multiple standing buildings that were all wrecks full of asbestos.

In addition, the soil was heavily polluted, heritage from the previous 70 years of industrial production.

Upon acquisition, LCP undertook successfully the following depollution and remediation activities:
  • Demolition of all the existing buildings and removal of 750 tons of asbestos
  • Removal of 22,300 tons of polluted soil.
As of today, the site is fully remediated and is ready to build.

Data centre development project

Soon after the acquisition, LCP decided to start the preparation of the development of a 125 MW IT data centre campus, divided in two 50 MW IT units and a third 25 MW IT unit. To make this development possible, LCP has successful secured 125 MW utility power with RTE, expandable up to 210 MW. Providing sufficient power to the site for the intended development.

LCP has prepared the design in collaboration with local municipalities and communities. Several public  meetings were led by LCP helping to establish a trustworthy relationship both with local authorities and communities.

In 2021, LCP applied for the building permit and ICPE licence for the first unit of 50 MW. Always seeking optimal solutions and excellence LCP’s data centre campus project provides for a PUE of 1.15 (very efficient) only achievable thanks to LCP’s initiative to implement adiabatic cooling towers, using the water from the Seine river to cool the data centre infrastructure. Such system is robust and allows for significant energy and carbon emission savings while being environmentally friendly.
