Novva Data Centers plans new Tahoe-Reno data center for 2024

May 9, 2023
The company says it will break ground soon on what is planned to be a 300,000-square-foot, 60-MW data center.

Novva Data Centers has announced plans for its fourth data center, a facility in Storey County, UT, that the company expects to open in late 2024. The data center will occupy a 20-acre campus located next to major tech firms in the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center (TRIC) industrial park along I-80 just outside Reno.

The company says it will break ground soon on what is planned to be a 300,000-square-foot, 60-MW data center. The facility will feature 54-inch raised flooring and six 10-MW data halls. Each hall will have approximately 30,000 feet of space in a column-less design that will maximize available square footage, according to Novva. The facility will be able to accommodate high-density deployments with hot air containment; an on-site 100-MW N+1 substation will supply scalable power from NV Energy. Other features will include a proprietary water-free cooling system, autonomous aerial drone security, robotic dog monitoring, direct-to-chip compatible cooling, and perimeter security gates with 24/7 monitoring.

The new campus will join Novva’s completed facilities in Colorado Springs, CO, and West Jordan, UT, and a third in North Las Vegas, NV, that Novva expects to open soon.

"Our new tech-forward facility, which we've dubbed Novva Tahoe Reno, will feature all of the hallmarks enterprises have come to expect from Novva's facilities: sustainability, innovation, security, and unrivaled amenities," said Wes Swenson, founder and CEO of Novva Data Centers. "Storey County is a growing tech hub centrally located to major western cities with access to renewable energy alternatives and attractive sales and use tax abatement programs, making it an ideal location to continue our expansion in the Western U.S."
