Vantage Data Centers Launches Washington State Data Center Campus Project with Fortune 50 Anchor Customer

Quincy, WA Campus Offers Clean and Cheap Power with Room to Scale




SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sep 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Vantage Data Centers, an innovative wholesale data center owner, developer and operator, announced today that it is under contract to purchase 63 acres of land for the development of enterprise class data centers in Quincy, Washington. A Fortune 50 leading manufacturing and technology company has signed a lease to be the first customer at the Washington campus.

Part of the move to Quincy is motivated to develop a Green Data Center.

Vantage selected Quincy because of the area's low-cost/low carbon/ultra-green hydro power served by the Columbia River Basin, an unequaled source of renewable power in North America. The Quincy project will mark Vantage's second campus designed for LEED(R) Platinum certification and further validates its commitment to sustainable design and greenhouse gas emissions reduction.

Clean hydro power, combined with Vantage design and collaboration expertise, will help Vantage customers minimize operating expenses while supporting clean energy initiatives. The project also includes the construction of a dedicated 41 MW 2N (fully redundant) dual fed substation with expansion capability and high efficiency distribution electrical systems.
