Our facility is located in Mackenzie (population 4,000), historically a major lumber town with a regional airport located 670km north of Vancouver and 170km north of Prince George (population ~76,000).

IREN acquired 11-acres of freehold land from the District of Mackenzie to develop data centers and provide additional economic activity, which has been in decline due to recent mill closures. The facility supports approximately 15 full-time local jobs in Mackenzie.

The facility will generate long-term revenue streams for the District of Mackenzie 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.
