Data centres can be the cornerstones that attract other high- technology jobs to a community, and officials in Fremont, Neb., have received encouraging news in their bid to land one. The Nebraska Department of Economic Development said it will contribute a block grant of nearly US$1 million to Fremont’s plans for developing a “shovel-ready power park” on more than 80 acres in the north-central part of the city.
The grant from the state and US$2.705 million investment from Fremont bring the total project cost to US$3,687,892. Tim O’Brien of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development said his agency believes that is enough to get high-tech companies and centres that need electrical power “very interested” in moving to the city 35 miles northwest of Omaha.
