Ramboll has acquired the data centre consultancy EYP Mission Critical Facilities (EYPMCF). This latest acquisition means Ramboll now has more than 100 dedicated data centre experts globally and expects revenue from data centre consulting services to reach $60m in 2025.
EYPMCF is a 50-strong specialist firm in data centre strategy, planning, design and commissioning, supporting clients all around the world to store, secure and move digital assets. Ramboll says the acquisition will strengthen its position in the international premier league of data centre consultancies and add fuel to its mission of contributing to lowering the carbon footprint of the industry.
Michael Simmelsgaard, chief operating officer at Ramboll, said: “We are very excited to be welcoming EYPMCF’s experts to Ramboll. For more than two decades, Ramboll has provided expert environmental, water, energy and building services to data centres helping our clients to design, construct and maintain energy and water efficient solutions around the world. With EYPMCF we add a company with deep technical domain knowledge of mission critical facilities which will strengthen our consultancy in integrated, innovative data centre solutions and strengthen Ramboll’s position in the international premier league of data centre consultancies.”
Rick Einhorn, managing partner at EYPMCF, described the acquisition as a great opportunity to the US-based company. He said: “Joining Ramboll is a great opportunity to expand our consulting and engineering services to our existing global client base while bringing our technical expertise into Ramboll’s existing and future clients across 35 countries around the world. Ramboll is strongly dedicated to supporting the sustainable development of the data centre industry, which resonates with our own position on how crucial it is to reduce the data centres’ climate footprint on our society.”
“Two huge trends are shaping our world today: the climate crisis and the digitalization of society,” added Simmelsgaard. “As digitalization advances and more and more data is transferred, used and stored by people and businesses, data centres have a critical role to play in supporting a green circular economy. As a trusted partner for sustainable change who is committed to embedding sustainability into everything we do for our clients, our role is to ensure that the facilities we design, build and operate on behalf of our clients are at the cutting edge of environmental performance. At Ramboll we operate with the mindset that 100% renewably powered, zero waste data centres are achievable.”
