Vantage Data Centers announced the delivery of its third and final facility, WA13, on its WA1 campus in Quincy, Washington. The company celebrated the milestone last Wednesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Since the start of construction in late 2022, the WA13 team completed more than 828,000 working hours with zero lost time incidents.
Sustainability in Focus
Vantage said its 530,000-square-foot WA13 data centre adds 64 MW of IT capacity to the 68-acre campus, which now totals 89 MW across nearly 775,000 square feet and three facilities. WA13 aligns with the company's "Sustainable by design" principles and supports green features, including a closed-loop air-cooled chiller system and Tier 4 generators to reduce particulate and nitric oxide (NO) emissions.
"Since we entered the Quincy market in 2011, Vantage has invested more than USD 1 billion in the development of this campus and directly contributed to the employment of local residents further boosting the greater Quincy economy," said Vantage.
"We are also grateful for GCPUD's partnership in powering our data centres and appreciate the utility's ongoing efforts to improve transmission infrastructure, capacity and reliability in Quincy and elsewhere in Grant County. We look forward to a continued, productive partnership with GCPUD as we grow together in the region, as well as expanding our community partnerships to enable a bright future for residents."
The campus is powered by the Grant County Public Utility District (GCPUD), which owns and operates two large-scale hydroelectric dams producing an average of 1,050 MW of reliable, clean renewable energy annually, according to the company's release.
