ITS THIRD DATA CENTER FACILITY
Novva Data Centers has announced that it is building a new data center in North Las Vegas, Nevada, which is being developed on a 20 acre site.
The new Las Vegas data center is Novva’s third location, joining existing facilities in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and West Jordan, Utah. With plans to invest about $400 Million, the Las Vegas data center is expected to span 275,000 square feet and deliver 100MW of load capacity.
“Since our founding, Novva has sought to bring purpose-built, futuristic, eco-friendly facilities to the Western United States and we’ve been very selective and intentional with our site locations,” said Wes Swenson, founder and CEO of Novva Data Centers.
“North Las Vegas is an ideal location for a data center because it allows us to take advantage of the abundant renewable energy alternatives, and its proximity to the California and regional markets. It is a great addition to our other western data center locations.”
This announcement follows Novva’s reception of an additional capital investment of $355 million from real estate and infrastructure investment firm CIM Group. This funding was set to accelerate Novva’s plans to expand its footprint across the United States.
“North Las Vegas is a growing hub for global brands and innovative industries and Novva’s new data center will help serve and attract top enterprises to our community” said John Lee, Mayor of North Las Vegas.
“Novva’s track record of building thoughtful, sustainable data centers proves they will be good stewards of local resources while bringing major value as North Las Vegas builds upon its reputation as a business hub.”
The Las Vegas facility is also designed to feature Novva’s water-free cooling technology, which is expected to save approximately 150 to 200 million gallons of water a year. With construction already in progress, the data center is expected to open in late 2023.
