Portugal Telecom Data Center – Covilha, Portugal

| June 5, 2014

Covilha, Portugal

The town of Covilha is home to an ambitious new data center project that seeks to combine progressive architecture, sustainability and the latest in information technology. The location for Covilha was chosen because it is the coldest point in Portugal which will allow for easy cooling on the overheating servers.The PT facility is built to be sustainable, featuring a rain water collection system (which forms a moat around the data center building), an on-site photovoltaic solar power generation, and a garden with more than 600 trees. Portugal Telecom is seeking Gold LEED certification for the data center building, and LEED Platinum status for the attached office building.
