Aligned is expanding into Hillsboro, Oregon.
The company today announced its expansion into the Pacific Northwest with a 27-acre, 108 MW data center campus in Hillsboro, Oregon.
Located at NE 30th Ave. & NE Evergreen Rd and master-planned for two new buildings, the initial data center (known as PDX-01) at Aligned’s Hillsboro campus is expected to offer 72MW of critical capacity. The second building (PDX-02) is currently planned for 36MW. Timelines for development were not shared.
According to the company's website, PDX-01 will feature 12 6MW data halls across 27 acres. The site will offer 100 percent renewable options via Portland General Electric, which owns seven hydroelectric plants, two wind farms, and seven thermal plants.
“The rapidly expanding Hillsboro data center market offers a host of advantages to hyperscale and large enterprise customers, especially as compared to other Western data center locations,” says Andrew Schaap, CEO of Aligned. “Hillsboro offers a business-friendly environment, affordable power and renewable energy options, diverse metro, and long-haul connectivity to major cities and tech hubs such as Los Angeles, Seattle, and Silicon Valley, as well as proximity to international subsea cable networks that reduce latency between the U.S. and high-growth markets in the Asia-Pacific region.”
The company said the campus will combine Aligned’s Delta³ cooling technology with a ‘state-of-the-art’ waterless heat rejection system, while the region’s mild climate will help further reduce power usage and costs associated with data center cooling.
The company recently announced plans to acquire Brazilian data center firm Odata.
