Edged Energy is building a new data center campus in the Dallas Fort Worth area of Texas.

The company this week announced it was pressing ahead with building the data center in Irving after the Irving City Council voted unanimously in support of the development. Plans for the facility were first revealed in September 2023.

Known as Edged Dallas, the facility will be built for high-density AI workloads and equipped with the company’s waterless cooling system.

Located at 505 North Wildwood Drive, east of Highway 12 and south of Highway 183, Edged Dallas will deliver 24MW of capacity, and operate with an average Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.15.

“Sustainability is at the core of our platform. It is why our data centers are uniquely optimized for energy efficiency and water conservation,” said Bryant Farland, CEO of Edged. “We are excited to be partnering with the Irving Economic Development Partnership (IEDP) and City of Irving, a thriving tech hub that shares our commitment to innovation and advancing technology for positive impact. Together, we are delivering world-class connectivity and future-proof solutions to support the region’s booming digital economy.”

Filings last year suggested Edged aimed to refurbish an existing warehouse. Originally known as Loop12, the facility was built by Johnson Development and completed in 2022.

“We are very excited to welcome Edged Dallas to Irving. Our city has all the right elements to be a world-class destination for vital data infrastructure,” added Irving mayor Rick Stopfer. “Irving’s common-sense approach to regulations and taxes, our large and talented workforce, and existing physical infrastructure links make us well-positioned to attract companies seeking to fill the need for computing horsepower created by artificial intelligence and other applications. We are especially pleased this project will be in South Irving, and we hope it will catalyze similar successful developments in the area going forward.”

“On behalf of our member-investors and board of directors, I would like to welcome Edged Dallas and its partners home to Irving,” said Beth A. Bowman, President & CEO of the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber and Irving Economic Development Partnership. “This project is a major vote of confidence in Irving as a destination for the data infrastructure needed to keep our current and future digital economy moving. Our city’s central location, global accessibility, and pro-business outlook provide a significant opportunity for data center companies looking to establish or grow their presence in our region.”

Edged Dallas will be outfitted with the ThermalWorks waterless cooling system. The modular system, from Edged’s sister company ThermalWorks, supports densities of up to 70kW per rack with air cooling and 200kW per rack with plug-and-play liquid cooling integration.

Edged Energy is part of Endeavour, which was set up by Aligned founder Jakob Carnemark.

The company has data centers either operating or in development in Madrid and Barcelona in Spain; Lisbon, Portugal; and across the US including Missouri, Arizona, Texas, Georgia, Iowa, Ohio, and Illinois.
