Foxconn “Tops Off” 100-Foot-High Performance Computing Data Center Globe
Mount Pleasant, WI – Foxconn Technology Group (Foxconn) and its construction manager, Mortenson, announced the structural steel completion of its 100-foot-tall High-Performance Computing Data Center (HPCDC) Globe located within Area 1 Phase 1 of the Wisconn Valley Science and Technology Park (WVSTP) in Mount Pleasant, WI.
Foxconn and Mortenson will soon begin the process of installing 642 pieces of glass through Q4 2020. To date, Foxconn has invested approximately $750 million in Wisconsin inclusive of capital expenditures, salaries, and other expenses since operations began.
The state-of-the-art HPCDC Globe will be home to the WVSTP’s Network Operations Center (NOC). Within the NOC, Foxconn employees will be able to control the computing power that supports the unique ecosystem of Foxconn technologies such as Industrial 5G networks, cloud computing, and industrial artificial intelligence. This ecosystem of Foxconn technologies supports advanced manufacturing operations across the WVSTP and gives employers the opportunities to bring jobs to Wisconsin where production of goods and services can remain competitive in the global market.
Data colocation, SaaS, and other high-performance computing opportunities position Foxconn to support a variety of industries such as healthcare, academic research, safety, and agriculture. In addition to supporting WVSTP operations, high-performance computing capability will attract business partnerships to the WVSTP, driving job creation, and economic development.
