Read the full story in Construction Dive.

Bechtel has announced a collaboration with Nautilus Data Technologies to construct data centers that use 70% less power for cooling and don’t consume drinking water, according to a press release shared with Construction Dive.

Nautilus’ Total Resource Usage Effectiveness technology, a closed-water loop coolant system, will keep server racks cool, using less power than traditional air conditioning systems and leading to a 30% net reduction in energy-related carbon dioxide and air pollution, the release said.

The initiative, the partners claim, will help lessen the environmental footprint of data centers and close the “digital divide” by making it easier to build data centers in cities, rural communities and developing areas.
