Lincoln Rackhouse has begun construction on the substation that will serve the data centre park near Columbus, Ohio.
The 200 MVA, N+1 on-site utility substation will offer up to four primary and one redundant 50 MVA transformers, with expected delivery set for July 2024.
Lincoln Property Company and Harrison Street acquired the 190-acre site in New Albany, Ohio, known as Silicon Heartland Innovation Park, earlier this year. The site provides 2.2 million sqft of space for future development.
“New Albany, Ohio is a highly desirable data centre location. It brings proximity to hyperscalers, carriers, and major transportation hubs, without the sacrifice of power present in other data centre markets,” said Martin Peck, Executive Vice President, Lincoln Rackhouse.
“Breaking ground on the substation is an exciting first step to bringing electrical infrastructure to the campus that will ultimately support 144 MW of critical load.”
American Electric Power (AEP) Ohio recently announced power upgrades to the electrical grid in order to accommodate the influx of development in the area.
