New York’s Edged Energy To Build ‘Ultra-Efficient, AI-Ready’ Data Center in Irving

Edged Dallas will be built for high-density AI workloads and equipped with advanced waterless cooling and ultra-efficient energy systems. It's expected to open in the fall.

New York City-based Edged Energy will build a new state-of-the-art sustainable data center in Irving, called Edged Dallas.

The company said the facility will be built for high-density computing for AI workloads and equipped with advanced waterless cooling and ultra-efficient energy systems. It’s expected to open in the fall.

Edged CEO Bryant Farland highlighted the company’s environmental focus in an announcement. “Sustainability is at the core of our platform,” he said, pointing to the energy and water-saving features of the company’s data centers. Noting its collaboration with the Irving Economic Development Partnership and the City of Irving, Farland acknowledged the city as a “thriving tech hub” and voiced confidence that their partnership would enhance the “region’s booming digital economy.”

He added, “Together, we are delivering world-class connectivity and forward-looking solutions.”

Last week, the Irving City Council voted unanimously to support the development, according to the company.

Linking sustainability and ‘computing horsepower’ at Edged Dallas

Edged Dallas will be at 505 North Wildwood Drive, east of Highway 12 and south of Highway 183, and will deliver 24 MW of critical capacity, conserve critical local water resources, and minimize energy usage.

Edged said it has nearly a dozen new data centers operating or under construction across Europe and North America and a gigawatt-scale project pipeline.

Edged said its facilities are designed to provide an industry-leading average Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.15 portfolio-wide. During a time of increasing water scarcity where rivers, aquifers, and watersheds nationwide are at dangerously low levels, Edged Dallas is expected to save nearly 95 million gallons of water annually compared to conventional data centers.

“We are very excited to welcome Edged Dallas to Irving. Our city has all the right elements to be a world-class destination for vital data infrastructure,” Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer said in a statement. “Irving’s common-sense approach to regulations and taxes, our large and talented workforce, and existing physical infrastructure links make us well-positioned to attract companies seeking to fill the need for computing horsepower created by artificial intelligence and other applications. We are especially pleased this project will be in South Irving, and we hope it will catalyze similar successful developments in the area going forward.”

Waterless cooling and data center growth

The company said that Edged Dallas will be equipped with the ThermalWorks waterless cooling system, designed to support the intense demands of generative AI and advanced computing. The modular system supports densities of up to 70 kW per rack with air cooling and 200 kW per rack with plug-and-play liquid cooling integration.

It said that, unlike other waterless cooling solutions, ThermalWorks’ advanced technology is ultra-efficient, which helps Edged dramatically reduce energy overhead by 74% compared with the global average PUE of 1.58 reported by the Uptime Institute.

“On behalf of our member-investors and board of directors, I would like to welcome Edged Dallas and its partners home to Irving,” Beth A. Bowman, president & CEO of the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber and Irving Economic Development Partnership, said in a statement. “This project is a major vote of confidence in Irving as a destination for the data infrastructure needed to keep our current and future digital economy moving. Our city’s central location, global accessibility, and pro-business outlook provide a significant opportunity for data center companies looking to establish or grow their presence in our region.”

A subsidiary of Endeavour, Edged Dallas LLC, is devoted to data center infrastructure.

The facility will join a growing network of Edged data centers currently under construction across the nation, including in Atlanta, Chicago, and Kansas City.
