Emerson opened the doors of its new energy-efficient global data center in St. Louis. The 35,000-sq-ft global data center will reportedly be 31% more energy efficient than traditional data centers, thanks to the energy-efficiency technologies, precision cooling products, and recommended efficiency strategies from the company's Emerson Network Power business.
The data center features a 7800-sq-ft rooftop solar array - the largest in Missouri. Emerson anticipates the center will have 99.982% uptime. Approximately 80% of the construction waste generated was diverted from landfills through recycling and design features that enabled Emerson to save more than 2.5 miles of copper piping, minimizing the use of excess materials.
As a result, Emerson anticipates achieving LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Emerson invested $50 million in the facility.
