Hydro-Electric Helps Power CenturyLink Data Center

HydroCenturyLink opened a new data center in Moses Lake, Washington, adding hydro-electric-powered data center services to its hybrid IT services portfolio.

The data center will ultimately support up to 30 MW of IT load on the site, with an initial ramp to 8 MW.

The facility’s electricity is supplied in part by hydroelectric generators powered by the nearby Columbia River. The central Washington climate also allows significant use of free-air cooling, driving lower power usage effectiveness (PUE) figures.

The property is owned by Server Farm Realty and leased to CenturyLink.

The launch of the central Washington data center comes shortly after CenturyLink announced the first deployment of Bloom Energy fuel cells to power a multi-tenant data center, located in southern California.
