NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — AVAIO Digital Partners (“ADP”) is pleased to announce the launch of Gatineau Data Hub (“GDH”), a joint venture with ADAM Real Estate, focused on the development of new, sustainable, hyperscale data center capacity in Gatineau, Quebec. The anchor project is being developed as a scalable facility, with the ability to ultimately support up to 50MW of capacity. The Gatineau location is strategic for several reasons: its location in Quebec gives it access to the province’s vast low-carbon hydroelectricity resources; Gatineau is part of Canada’s Ottawa capital region, positioning GDH to serve the growing Federal and private sector demand in this region; and Gatineau is between Toronto and Montreal, positioning it to complement two of Canada’s largest data center markets.

“Gatineau is an exciting location for new data center capacity to serve customers in the National Capital Region and beyond, especially given Quebec’s abundant and inexpensive low-carbon power and supportive development environment,” said AVAIO partner Mark McComiskey. “We look forward to working with our partner ADAM Real Estate, as well as the province of Quebec and the Gatineau and Greater Ottawa communities to help develop new critical, sustainable digital infrastructure in this key market.”

“We are excited to be bringing this project to help serve the National Capital Region’s growing technology industry”, said ADAM Real Estate President Alain Adam. “GDH offers a great opportunity to meet Canada’s need for new green data capacity.”
