The Metropolitan Airports Commission plans to build a US$15 million data centre at Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport.
MAC is soliciting bids from firms that want to construct the 10,700-sq ft facility, which will be located in the cargo area at the airport. Bids are due Feb. 14 and contracts will be awarded in March. Work on the facility will begin in April. MAC now has about 110 data rooms at the airport. It wants to build the data centre in order to consolidate those operations into one facility, said Alan Howell, who is managing the data centre project.
