Latin America data center provider Scala Data Centers has issued $215 million of green debentures, marking the second largest green-tied issuance in the Brazil data center sector. The funds will be used to construct hyperscale data centers which will have an annual PUE of less than 1.45, with 100 percent of the data centers to be powered by renewable energy.

Marcos Peigo, CEO and co-founder of Scala said, "We will continue to innovate to meet the growing demands of the hyperscale market through future-proof constructions, which means, those which already consider the increase in densities per rack without interruptions in the production environment. These infrastructures combine flexibility and innovation to accommodate emerging technologies and new workloads yet to come to the region."

Scala Data Centers, founded by DigitalBridge and headquartered in Brazil, has data centers in development or operation in Chile, Brazil, and Mexico. Scala’s website notes that it currently has over 60MW of operational capacity in Latin America and more than 900MW either under construction or planned.
