A little more than two years after laying the foundation stone, Eni has opened its new Green Data Centre in Ferrera Erbognone (Pavia). The building will host Eni's central computer processing systems, both for information management and seismic simulation processing (High Performance Computing).
"Let's give energy a new energy" is the philosophy which underlies Eni's decision to make the project available to universities and research centers - an open model to ensure that Eni's investment may be a prototype of excellence, innovative and sustainable.
The new centre (Italian in design and construction) will be among the most important in Europe in terms of its purpose and size (5,200 useful m2, up to 30MW of IT power and up to 50kW/m2 of energy density) and the best in the world for energy efficiency. Thanks to its innovative infrastructure it will cut CO2 emissions by 335,000 tons per year (about 1% of the Italian Kyoto energy target), and significantly reduce operating costs.
