Mission Critical Facilities International (MCFI) today announced that it has built and is deploying one of its Genius Modular Data Center facilities, a purpose-built, 500kW modular cloud data center platform, for a digital flare mitigation facility located in North Dakota.

The data center campus, which is now open and serving customers, will reside in a 58' x 12' outdoor enclosure housing 160 Nvidia GPU servers in 20 racks at a planned 25kW per rack. The deployed data center solution also includes an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), UPS backup and an innovative closed-loop, liquid cooling system.

Per a statement, the Genius Modular Data Center solution will deliver increased efficiency utilizing the Coolcentric Rear Door Heat Exchangers (RDHx) platform, with an expected PUE of less than 1.2.

MCFI said the expected annual net impact per MWh in the new deployment is between -2,161 lbs. CO2e to -2,344 lbs. CO2e, compared to data centers in Ashburn and Secaucus.

A global specialist data center and telecom infrastructure, MCFI designed, manufactured and delivered its Genius Modular Data Center solution in 23 weeks, "even with today's supply chain challenges," as noted by a company press release.

The firm contends its Genius Modular Data Center solution has an impressive speed to market of five to eight months, and that its pre-designed/pre-engineered data center platform delivers the economics and flexibility of a stick-built data center for edge or colocation providers.

"MCFI's compact, innovative and energy-efficient data center solution helps companies fulfill commitments to sustainability by further reducing carbon footprints," commented Patrick Giangrosso, vice president at MCFI. "Our eco-friendly and economical solutions will pass down cost savings to customers while companies meet demand and enhance cloud computing operations."
