Data centre developer and operator Prime Data Centers, LLC has unveiled plans to build a second data centre at its Sacramento, California campus, located at the McClellan Park business complex. 

The facility is designed to meet the growing demand in both Sacramento Metro as well as from the San Francisco Bay Area, with twice the capacity of Prime’s existing facility. 

The campus is powered by an onsite 49MW substation owned and operated by Prime.

Prime Data Centers’ Building-1, an 8MW facility, is fully leased at this time. Its Building-2, which is located adjacent to the existing building, will provide up to 16MW of critical capacity and 150,000 square feet.

Prime anticipates starting construction in Q2 of 2022, with the potential of accelerating the timeline based on tenant status.

Jeff Barber, Prime’s EVP of Sales and Marketing, said: “With our first building at McClellan Park fully occupied, and demand for capacity growing every day, Prime Data Centers is doubling-down in the region with this new state-of-the-art facility.

“We see the Bay Area becoming more power-constrained and consider Sacramento the perfect alternative, complete with an ample supply of power and significantly lower pricing. The geographic profile is amongst the safest in the nation without significant latency typically associated with data replication.”

The design will accommodate rack densities from 4.5-30kW, with advanced heat containment, and offer the most efficient cooling technologies available with a design PUE of <1.25. Prime’s Sacramento facilities are powered by one of the nation’s top-rated utility providers; Sacramento Municipal Utilities District (SMUD).

The onsite sub-station is connected to three diverse stations around the Sacramento region, providing top-tier reliability and redundancy.
