Sep 14, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

Novva Data Centers has announced plans for a new 275,000 square foot, 100MW data center based in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The facility will be located on a 20-acre campus with an injection of $400 million and will reportedly be built with sustainability in mind. Renewable energy will be sourced in partnership with NV Energy and the company will only use water-free cooling technology.

Speaking about the company's sustainability goals, and its strategic location choice, Wes Swenson, founder and CEO of Novva Data Centers, said: "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," adding: "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."

Commenting on the company's implementation of its water-free cooling technology, Swenson said it will save approximately 150 to 200 million gallons of water a year, and in 2024, the company plans to deploy atmospheric water generation for landscape needs. He outlined that the facility will also benefit from tax abatements from the state of Nevada, approved in the summer of 2022.

Welcoming the facility to the area, North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee, commented: "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. 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."

Work on the facility began in October 2021 and is expected to open in late 2023.
