The Toren van Spannenburg, as this telecom & data tower is sometimes called, was built in 1972 at the behest of the erstwhile PTT. The tower has a total height of 118 meters.
In 2007, Cellnex bought 24 telecom & data towers in the Netherlands, including this tower, from KPN and established its datacenters in them. With only 50 m2 of surface area, this is one of our smaller datacenters.
Generally, the datacenters are not open to the public, but the Toren van Spannenburg also participated in the Heppie View event in 2014. A visitor made some beautiful video footage of the event.
In November of 2016, Cellnex entered a partnership with ViaData Automatisering from Heerenveen and the tower was named: ViaData Toren. On November 4, 2016, the opening of the new datacenter was celebrated with a festive ceremony.
