Vantage Data Centers has begun the second phase of construction on its mega-scale campus in Goodyear, Arizona.
The campus is scheduled to be operational in the spring of 2024, and will provide 160 MW of capacity across three facilities once fully developed. Vantage has said it is investing over $1.5 billion into the project.
The Goodyear campus will utilise a closed-loop chilled water system with air-side economisers to reduce energy use based on outside ambient temperature, so that virtually no water will be used for cooling.
“As we continue to drive exponential growth across the globe, Vantage is proud to partner with officials in Goodyear to meet the increased demand for data centres in the region,” said Sam Huckaby, Senior Vice President, Construction, North America for Vantage Data Centers.
“We appreciate Mayor Pizzillo, the City of Goodyear officials and Arizona Public Service Company (APS) for their ongoing collaborative partnership to help bring this campus to fruition. We are committed to investing in the community, and at the same time, to being a responsible corporate citizen to meet the needs of our customers while preserving precious resources in Arizona.”
“We are proud that Vantage selected our Mission Critical team as the design-build partner on the expansion of its Goodyear campus,” added Ryan Ferguson, Vice President and Project Executive with the Mission Critical team at McCarthy Building Companies, the general contractor for phase two of the development.
“Thanks to the collaboration between Vantage, the city, APS and with all design and construction partners, we are well-positioned for this fast-paced project, even with today’s challenging market conditions, to achieve the schedule and budget goals.”
