Our Canal Flats facility is located in the Canadian Rockies, 100km from Cranbrook regional airport (population 20,000) and 500km east of Vancouver.

Situated on a 10-acre freehold site owned by IREN, the facility has full fiber connectivity and a fabrication workshop that supports our other facilities.

The site is connected to the BC Hydro network (69kV) via a 30MW on-site substation owned by IREN.

The highly skilled management team has significant experience in the management and operation of the data centers. The facility supports approximately 20 full-time local jobs in Canal Flats.

The facility will generate long-term revenue streams for Canal Flats and the local community over the multi-decade expected life of the business. IREN has committed to purchasing locally and contracting with local businesses where it is possible and makes sense to do so.

Power Supply

The site is connected to the BC Hydro transmission network and powered by 100% renewable energy, currently approximately 98% sourced from clean or renewable sources as reported by BC Hydro (primarily from hydroelectricity) and 2% sourced from the purchase of RECs.

Declining industrial demand over the past couple of decades and additional renewable generation capacity has resulted in BC Hydro having excess generation compared to load and IREN’s data centers can absorb some of this excess capacity, which under the regulatory model applicable in British Columbia has the benefit of reducing rates for other BC Hydro customers.
