Ardent Data Centers, a Northern Data Group company, completes acquisition of Pennsylvania data center
Frankfurt/Main – 22 January 2024 – Ardent Data Centers, a Northern Data Group company and experts in data center design, build, and management, today announces it has completed the acquisition of a data center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.
The finalization of this acquisition progresses Northern Data Group’s overall strategy to expand Ardent’s ability to bring high-density, liquid-cooled solutions to the market and provide co-location services for compute power across the United States and Europe.
By expanding Ardent Data Center’s portfolio of next-generation, high-density data centers, Northern Data Group can further address the surging demand for compute power needed for Generative AI and other HPC applications.
Ardent will upgrade the 7.5-acre site in Pennsylvania, retrofitting the 41,000-square-foot building with the latest liquid cooling technology to allow for additional power and maximize energy capacity. As a result, the site will become a cutting-edge, high-density data center environment, purpose-built to power the next generation of High-Performance Computing (HPC).
The current 5MW site will be expanded to its full 20MW capacity by H2 2025. Through Ardent’s deployment of the latest, critical heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system alongside liquid-based cooling infrastructure, the site will become one of the most efficient in the industry, with Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) targets of 1.2 or lower. Ardent will begin conversion immediately and expects to complete the upgrade by Q4 2024.
Ardent Data Centers has chosen Pittsburgh based on its favorable power pricing, access to the entire Eastern Seaboard with under 10ms latency to major US eastern hubs, and due to it being one of the safety metro regions for natural disaster, as per FEMA. The site is located at McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, in the Pittsburgh metro area.
