UMATILLA, OREGON – Sabey Data Centers, a premier designer, builder, and operator of multi-tenant data centers, is proud to announce that the company is expanding into Umatilla, Oregon. Sabey has purchased 60 acres to develop a 100+ MW state-of-the-art data center campus.
SDC Umatilla will feature Sabey’s award-winning, hyper-efficient data center designs that are purpose-built to support today’s dense hyper-scale and enterprise deployments. The 700,000-square-foot data center campus will support 100+ MW of critical IT load. As of 2020, Oregon reported a 40% renewable utility power fuel mix with a target to hit 100% by 2040. Sabey will procure/invest in carbon-free energy in time to meet the Company’s net-zero target by 2029 in Umatilla and across the SDC portfolio, 11 years ahead of Oregon’s target.
“Sabey continues its commitment to build cutting-edge, super-efficient data centers in markets like Umatilla that move us toward our goal to operate with net-zero carbon emission by 2029. Our data centers combine that level of sustainability with low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) throughout the data center lifecycle, reliability, and connectivity,” says 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.”
“This new market expansion reinforces the continued demand for digital capacity and is an exciting time for the SDCP organization,” said Jeffrey Kanne, President and CEO of National Real Estate Advisors and Vice Chairman of Sabey Data Centers. “We look forward to deploying additional capital to support SDCP’s efforts in Umatilla.”
The campus will offer multiple diverse connectivity solutions, provide low latency to West Coast metro areas, and enjoy proximity to West Coast subsea cables. Construction of the data center campus will generate jobs in the local rural community, with ongoing career opportunities available on the campus.
“We are excited to welcome Sabey into our community,” says Dave Stockdale, City Manager of Umatilla, “and delighted to support this endeavor in Umatilla based on their track record of providing advanced data center services through a highly sustainable operations model. 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 Data Centers expects to begin development in Umatilla, OR in 2024.
