Travelers Companies opens Nebraska data center
SARPY COUNTY, Neb. — Travelers Companies has opened a data center in Sarpy County. It joins other data centers in the county owned by Yahoo, Cabela’s, and two locations for Cosentry.
Gov. Pete Ricketts welcomed the new 183,000-square-foot Tier III 4MW data center and hailed its role in expanding technology and jobs in the state.
“Our state continues to grow opportunities in technology-based customer service while creating new jobs in Nebraska,” Ricketts said. “This type of development can serve as inspiration for other growth industries in our state.”
The center is located on the southwest corner of Highway 50 and Schram Road. Travelers purchased a 140-acre tract, and placed the facility on a 41-acre parcel, leaving 92 acres for potential future development. Omaha Public Power District purchased a 5-acre parcel from Travelers and built a new substation on site to directly serve the center’s power needs. The substation also is equipped to handle considerable electrical load from other potential data centers in the area, and was a multi-million dollar investment in the area’s future growth.
