Novva Data Centres has announced the acquisition of a 37-acre campus, featuring a Tier 3+ data centre and industrial building, in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The company has also secured an anchor tenant in conjunction with the acquisition. The company is currently building the largest data centre campus in Utah.
The acquisition involves a data centre with a 6 MW designed capacity. Novva will expand the campus to 30MW, with an additional 250,000 square feet, and invest over $200 million. Inventory is immediately available for lease. Colorado Springs offers reliable and inexpensive power and is currently undergoing a large shift away from coal towards solar energy. As the second-largest city in Colorado, fibre and internet are similar to a Tier 1 location. Novva plans to shift to 100 per cent renewable energy, and waterless cooling at the site.
“We are really excited to move into the Colorado market,” Wes Swenson, CEO of Novva Data Centres, said. “Our mission at Novva is to serve the Western United States, providing purpose-built designs, high capacity data centre services to the area and our customers. This facility will be a great addition to our portfolio and we look forward to further growth in these markets.”
