Apple expanderar befintligt datacenter i Nevada
Apple began building that development on scrub land in 2013, aiming to build one of the world’s greenest data centers in operation, drawing most of its power needs from solar and geothermal energy.
Six months later, the company has already completed the framing for a third data center cluster (shown below, from the site’s entry road), with work beginning on a fourth cluster that Apple applied for permits to build earlier this year.
Apple’s construction is progressing so fast at the Reno site that it is now depending on a new electrical substation and power lines being completed by NV Energy in order to continue its expansion.
A vast new solar array reported to began operation this summer by the Reno Gazette Journal, enabling the site to draw 100 percent of its power needs from a renewable source.
Meanwhile, Apple is also expanding its landholdings in Prineville, Oregon, a data center site Apple began working on in parallel about four years ago. The Bend Bulletinreported that Apple closed a $3.6 million deal for almost 200 additional acres of land adjacent to its existing 159 acre site acquired in 2012.
Verkar som fruktbolaget tar det här med sina datacenter på stort allvar. Jag skrev en hyfsat lång artikel om det tidigare i år som du kan läsa här.
