Vantage Data Centers (VDC) operates a data center at 2101 M Street NE in Quincy. VDC determined they can successfully operate with a lower number of smaller engine/generators than are currently approved for their site. Even though the current approval order doesn't require an update, Ecology is proceeding with an administrative amendment to incorporate the proposed changes. VDC indicates the 17 3-MW engine/generators already approved for their facility can be replaced with seven 3-MW engines (two additional for the first building) and eight 2.75-MW engine/generators (instead of the 10 3-MW engine/generators approved) in the buildings yet to be constructed.
Ecology views this change as positive (smaller engines emit less pollutants per hour) and plans to approve the application. We will hold a public comment period on a draft approval order ("air permit") that includes this change only if a written request is received by email, letter, or fax by July 24, 2018.
