Global data centre operator STACK Infrastructure has broke ground on its newest 100MW hyperscale data centre campus in Northern Virginia.
Located in the centre of Prince William Country, the first 36MW facility on the campus is expected to be complete in the first quarter of 2024.
“Expanding our presence in the heart of Prince William County represents a strategic approach of continuing to deliver scalable capacity where it matters most,” said Matthew VanderZanden, Chief Operating Officer of STACK Americas.
STACK has a portfolio of seven data center campuses in Northern Virginia, with the latest 40-acre site adding 100MW of scalable power from Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative. STACK plans to grow the campus to multiple data centres, supported by a 300MW substation.
“Powered with 100% renewable energy, STACK’s new campus offers a sustainable solution and allows our clients the ability to grow quickly in the world’s largest data center market,” added VanderZanden.
Northern Virginia is said to be ‘one of the most power-constrained data centre markets in the world’, in which STACK has nearly 1GW of current and under-development capacity.
This latest announcement follows STACK’s announcement in January of a 216MW data centre campus in Ashburn, Northern Virginia.
