Sabey Data Centers has purchased 60 acres of land in Umatilla, Oregon to develop a 100 MW campus.
SDC Umatilla will support over 100 MW of critical capacity. Sabey will invest in carbon-free energy in Umatilla and across its portfolio as part of the company’s goal to reach net zero by 2029, 11 years ahead of Oregon’s target.
“Sabey continues its commitment to build cutting-edge, super-efficient data centres in markets like Umatilla that move us toward our goal to operate with net-zero carbon emission by 2029. Our data centres combine that level of sustainability with low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) throughout the data centre lifecycle, reliability and connectivity,” said Rob Rockwood, President of Sabey Data Centers.
“And as we have in every one of our markets, we will run our campuses with men and women from the local community who share our vision to build opportunity along with the world’s best data centers.”
The campus will provide low latency to West Coast metro areas with proximity to west coast subsea cables.
“We are excited to welcome Sabey into our community, and delighted to support this endeavour in Umatilla based on their track record of providing advanced data centre services through a highly sustainable operations model,” said Dave Stockdale, City Manager of Umatilla.
“Sabey’s commitment to support some of our major projects is a testimony to their reputation as an integrated community partner, and we look forward to having our uniquely qualified local workforce join their team of professionals.”
Sabey has said expects to break ground in Umatilla in the first quarter of 2025.
