Fortune’s Oregon Data Center to Be Awarded Half Million USD from Energy Trust of Oregon
Fortune Data Centers is opening its Oregon data center with the news that it is expected to
achieve a half million dollar award from Energy Trust of Oregon. The data center delivers one
of the highest levels of efficiency, with 99% efficient uninterrupted power supply (UPS) and
a power usage effectiveness (PUE) of 1.16 in full economization mode as verified in a Level 5
Fortune earned this incentive for energy efficiency from Energy Trust based on three main
design elements: 99% efficient UPS, full water side economization and 100% aisle containment.
In addition, Oregon’s mild climate will enable the data center to use natural cooling methods to
run the facility at least 30 percent of the year.
“Like other Fortune facilities, the Oregon data center benefits from state-of-the-art energy
efficiency and control—including 100% aisle containment, as well as the ability to take
advantage of Oregon’s clean and inexpensive power,” said John Sheputis, CEO of Fortune Data
Centers. “The commissioning data was better than expected, demonstrating an unprecedented
level of efficiency for a wholesale facility.”
According to Energy Trust Business Sector Lead Oliver Kesting, “Fortune is doing all the right
things. The savings potential for new data centers are significant and Fortune has explored all
possibilities to be the most efficient they can be. We had a great working relationship and are
looking forward to seeing these savings in action.”
Sheputis added, “We are very proud of the entire team. In addition to building a great facility,
we also continued our unmatched safety record. To date, Fortune has completed 300,000
construction hours without a day lost due to work injury.”
