City Council Approves New Edged Energy Data Center Facility in South Irving

On Thursday night, April 11th, the Irving City Council unanimously approved Edged Energy's proposal for a new facility known as Edged Dallas. The facility, slated to be located at 505 North Wildwood Drive in South Irving (east of Highway 12 and south of Highway 183), will house high-density AI workloads and feature advanced waterless cooling and energy systems. Expected to open later this fall, Edged Dallas aims to set a new standard for sustainability in data centers.

Edged Energy, a global platform of on-demand data centers, focuses on carbon and water neutrality in its operations. Edged Dallas is projected to have an average Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.15, significantly outperforming conventional data centers. With 24 MW of critical capacity, the facility is anticipated to save nearly 95 million gallons of water annually, addressing concerns of water scarcity.

The facility will utilize the ThermalWorks waterless cooling system, capable of supporting intensive AI and computing demands. Offering modular support for high densities, the system is expected to reduce energy overhead by 74% compared to global averages.

“Sustainability is at the core of our platform. It is why our data centers are uniquely optimized for energy efficiency and water conservation,” said Bryant Farland, Chief Executive Officer for Edged. “We are excited to be partnering with the Irving Economic Development Partnership (IEDP) and City of Irving, a thriving tech hub that shares our commitment to innovation and advancing technology for positive impact. Together, we are delivering world-class connectivity and future-proof solutions to support the region’s booming digital economy.”

“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,” said Irving Mayor Rick Stopfer. “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.”

“On behalf of our member-investors and board of directors, I would like to welcome Edged Dallas and its partners home to Irving,” said Beth A. Bowman, President & CEO of the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber and Irving Economic Development Partnership. “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.”

Edged Dallas, LLC, a subsidiary of Endeavour specializing in data center infrastructure, is part of Edged's expanding network. With projects underway in various locations across Europe and North America, including Atlanta, Chicago, and Kansas City, Edged Energy is positioning itself as a leader in sustainable data center solutions.
