WINNEMUCCA, Nev. (PRNewswire, MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- A 22,000 acre Nevada data center site in Winnemucca is currently under development, according to a press release issued by Wired Real Estate Group Inc.
Winnemucca, the halfway point between Salt Lake City and San Francisco along Interstate 80, is also along the same corridor where Apple has established their major data center campus. With 120 MW of available grid power, natural gas, access to solar and established water rights, the site is suitable for scale data center deployments that require proximity to the proven markets of Silicon Valley, Las Vegas and Reno.
"With 22,000 acres, we are seeking opportunities to work with data center users that require world class infrastructure over the long term. WiredRE's heritage in power development along with their data center expertise is a great match for the scale and breadth of this unique project," said Stacy Kincaid, a representative of the property's ownership group.
Wired Real Estate Group, 'WiredRE', one of the nation's leading independent cloud, colocation, and data center advisory firms, has been selected by the developer as data center advisor.
Data center users are attracted to Nevada because of its insulation from natural disasters as well as the availability of fiber, power, land and tax incentives. This Winnemucca data center development is no exception, sitting outside natural disaster risk areas with easy access to fiber, gas, solar, ample water, and power. The site is ideal for solar power with the ability to support a utility scale project and generate over 6 kWH per square meter per day.
"GAMFY (Google, Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, and Yahoo) have proven that data centers are more like utilities and power plants every day. The scale of this data center development in Winnemucca is enormous, and it's the perfect fit for today's sophisticated user," said Everett Thompson, WiredRE CEO, "This is another great example of a unique alternative for demanding data center users."
