Texas company starts building second data center in Ashburn
Aligned Energy LLC finished the first 60MW structure in 2019.
Plano, Texas-based data center infrastructure company Aligned Energy LLC has started construction on its second data center in Loudoun County’s Ashburn area, the company announced Tuesday.
Aligned finished construction on its first 370,000-square-foot, 60-megawatt data in 2019. The new data center will add 513,000 square feet and 120 megawatts to the existing campus.
“The first phase of Aligned’s Ashburn data center campus was completed in approximately six months, and we’re now on target to deliver the initial phase of our second Ashburn facility, a fully-commissioned 40 [megawatt center], by the close of 2020,” Aligned CEO Andrew Schaap said in a statement.
Aligned also has data centers in Dallas, Phoenix and Salt Lake City. Loudoun County is the primary data center hub of the world, with more than 70% of all internet traffic passing through Ashburn.
