Sabey Data centers to build new Oregon campus

Sabey has purchased 60 acres to develop a 100+ MW state-of-the-art site.

Sabey Data centers has confirmed its expansion into Umatilla, Oregon, where it has purchased 60 acres to develop a 100+ MW state-of-the-art data center campus – expecting to break ground in Q1 of 2025.

SDC Umatilla will feature Sabey’s award-winning, hyper-efficient data center designs purpose-built to support dense hyperscale and enterprise deployments.

The 700,000 square foot data center campus will support 100+ MW of critical IT load.

As of 2020, Oregon reported a 40% renewable utility power fuel mix with a target to hit 100% by 2040.  Sabey will procure/invest in carbon free energy in time to meet the Company’s net-zero target by 2029 in Umatilla and across the SDC portfolio – 11 years ahead of Oregon’s target.

“Sabey continues its commitment to build cutting-edge, super-efficient data centers in markets like Umatilla that move us toward our goal to operate with net-zero carbon emission by 2029.  Our data centers combine that level of sustainability with low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) throughout the data center lifecycle, reliability and connectivity,” said Rob Rockwood, President of Sabey Data centers.  “And as we have in every one of our markets, we will run our campuses with men and women from the local community who share our vision to build opportunity along with the world’s best data centers.”

The campus will offer multiple diverse connectivity solutions, provide low latency to West Coast metro areas and enjoy proximity to west coast subsea cables.

Construction of the data center campus will generate jobs in the local rural community, with ongoing career opportunities available on the campus.

“We are excited to welcome Sabey into our community and delighted to support this endeavor in Umatilla based on their track record of providing advanced data center services through a highly sustainable operations model,” said Dave Stockdale, City Manager of Umatilla.

“Sabey’s commitment to support some of our major projects is a testimony to their reputation as an integrated community partner and we look forward to having our uniquely qualified local workforce join their team of professionals.”

With a portfolio of more than four million square feet of mission-critical space, Sabey Data centers is one of the largest privately-owned multi-tenant data center owners/developers/operators in the United States.

Sabey specializes in scalable, custom-built data center solutions recognized for their efficiency, low total cost of ownership, operational maturity and sustained uptime.

Sabey provides sustainable data center services to many of the world’s top financial, technology and healthcare companies.

The company itself is a joint venture between Sabey Corporation and National Real Estate Advisors, LLC, acting as the investment manager on behalf of its institutional clients.
