Global data center developer, owner, and operator, EdgeCore Digital Infrastructure announced that the company has commenced the construction of the first of two Silicon Valley data centers. The new sustainably designed data centers are designed to meet the customer requirements in the region. The development also marks the beginning of a series of platform expansions.
72 MW of critical load
The LEED-designed campus, announced shortly after the acquisition and $1.2 billion investment by Partners Group, will support 72 MW of critical load across 540,000 square feet of space. Utility power will be available at the facility through Silicon Valley Power in early Q1 of 2024. EdgeCore’s new high-performance Silicon Valley data center campus will be sustainably designed to achieve the following:
- LEED BD+C Silver certification
- Energy Star certification
- Water Utilization Effectiveness (WUE) of .01
- Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of <1.30
- The availability of carbon-neutral electricity
The facility will also enable customers to meet their sustainability commitments, while also offering the security, scalability, and reliability required. In November 2022, the company was acquired by Partners Group. Partners Group plans to invest up to $1.2 billion for the acquisition and development of existing and future data center sites. Jeff Dorr, President and Chief Financial Officer of EdgeCore said,
« EdgeCore entered 2023 poised for rapid growth and today’s announcement of our Silicon Valley campus groundbreaking is the exciting start to a busy year of development. To ensure the exacting standards of our customers are exceeded, EdgeCore’s commitment to infusing sustainable building and operational practices in each high-performance, ready-for-occupancy data center we construct continues with this Santa Clara facility. »
