Officials with the Christian County Economic Council say they are pleased to announce that Hopkinsville Data Park, located on US 68/80 has joined an elite group of locations identified in a recent Deloitte Consulting study.
Officials say the 315 acre site features accessibility, telecommunications infrastructure, and the availability of reliable electric power required to meet the criteria of data center companies.
Hopkinsville has been recognized as one of only 22 sites in the seven-state TVA service region to receive this readiness designation.
The Tennessee Valley Authority hired Chicago-based Deloitte Consulting to identify and evaluate locations in TVA's seven-state, 80,000 square-mile service territory.
Christian County Judge Executive Steve Tribble was quoted as saying having this site certified as a primary data center location gives Christian County an advantage in the highly competitive site selection process.
Hopkinsville Mayor Dan Kemp added that receiving this development-ready certification signifies not only that this property is an ideal data center location, but also that the City of Hopkinsville has what it takes to be a great home for high-tech industries.
