New Archer Datacenters to Power with 100% Renewables
Archer Datacenters and data center provider Evoque, a portfolio company of Brookfield Infrastructure Partners entered a joint venture to bring over 100MW of power capacity and over 500,000 square feet of data center space to the Southeast region.
Evoque has earmarked $200 million to accelerate the expansion of the site, which includes a commitment to building a 100% renewable energy solution.
The original 28.5 acre campus is anchored by an 82,000 square foot data center shell with over 40MW of available power today from Gallatin Department of Electricity’s (“GDE”) adjacent substation. The initial project, located in Gallatin, Tennessee, anticipates a four-phase development, scalable on the existing site as well as an adjacent 32.8 acre parcel. The long-term expandability of 100+MW is possible in concert with the continuously updated transmission capacity of GDE and Tennessee Valley Authority (“TVA”).
“The opportunity to expand into the Nashville market and to serve hyperscalers, cloud service providers, and large enterprises is exciting,” said Evoque CEO Officer Andy Stewart in a statement. “Evoque looks forward to maximizing the potential of this opportunity and to deliver more best-in-breed digital infrastructure solutions to more enterprises.”
