The city of Timmins is the ideal and cost-competitive location to house major data centre. It features a cool climate overall with a low risk of natural disasters, and plenty of industrial land available for development.
With an average annual temperature that only exceeds 24°C (75°F) four times, the cool climate is favourable for maintaining low operational costs. The abundance of lakes and rivers in the area provide an opportunity to use unique, environmentally-sound cooling options that could help reduce the overall electricity consumption required for a high end centre.
The region is environmentally stable and boasts a low frequency of natural disasters and downtime due to environmental occurrences. This means that business continuity is easy to maintain.
The availability of development-ready land in Timmins, combined with a low population density, makes the area an ideal location for a data centre that might require privacy and isolation, yet is readily accessible to employees.
As a North American leader in climate-friendly energy and sustainable technologies, Ontario is now a “coal-free” jurisdiction. The province’s last coal-powered electricity generation facility was switched off in early 2014, eight months ahead of schedule.
