Stack Infrastructure has brought online its latest data centre facility in Silicon Valley (SVY02), adding 32MW of capacity to its North American portfolio.

The new facility is adjacent to the company’s existing SVY01, 9MW, 140,000 square foot facility at its current Silicon Valley Campus and adds 32MW of power on a 240,000 square foot, three-floor high building.

The centre is powered by 100% renewable energy on PG&E’s Direct Access program, and is in line with Stack’s ambition to become 100% green powered by the end of 2021.

Stack’s Chief Strategy Officer, Matt VanderZanden, said: “Stack has proven its ability to navigate the development and supply chain challenges of today in order to promptly deliver the data centre of tomorrow in one of the most important technology markets in the world.

“Our ability to successfully partner with a variety of local Silicon Valley stakeholders has reaffirmed Stack’s tradition of development excellence. With planned future phases of our Silicon Valley campus, we look forward to continuing to address our clients’ needs and energising the local economy.”

Stack currently operates in the US and Canada with a portfolio of 21 facilities in Toronto, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, New Albany, Northern Virginia, Phoenix, Portland, and Silicon Valley.

The company has several projects under development including a 24MW data centre in Portland, Oregon (POR03) to be commissioned in Q4 2021. The facility will sit on a 30-acre campus with a future power load of 84MW.

The operator is also building a largescale expansion at its 19-acre data centre campus in Toronto, with 8MW coming available in Q3 2022 and an additional 48MW planned to be introduced in future phases starting in 2023. The current operation in the Canadian city amounts to 8MW of IT load.

Stack has also unveiled plans to develop two hyperscale campuses with a combined potential critical capacity of 650MW.

This includes a 125-acre data centre campus with 250MW of potential critical capacity in Prince William County, Virginia in partnership with the Peterson Companies, and a 400-acre data centre campus with 400MW potential critical capacity in AllianceTexas, a master-planned development in Fort Worth, Texas, in partnership with Hillwood.
