Duffield, Va Selected As Prime Site For Data Center

October 22, 2010

The Tennessee Valley Authority selected Duffield, Va., as a "prime location" for data center development, Rep. Rick Boucher, D -Va., announced on Friday.

"Data centers provide high-wage jobs to highly skilled employees, and Duffield has much to offer a company seeking a location for a data center," said Boucher, Communications Subcommittee Chairman. "It is home to the Scott County Business and Technology Park, which is fully outfitted with the water, wastewater and telecommunications infrastructure necessary to accommodate a data center. In addition, its multi-tenant Crooked Road Technology Center is available for occupancy."

TVA, according to a statement from Boucher, considered 50 sites throughout the Southeast for the distinction of "prime location" and chose 12 including Duffield. As part of a data center recruitment initiative, TVA will partner with local power distributors and economic development leaders to begin marketing the sites.

"I have been working with local officials for several years to transform the Duffield community into a prime location for technology based jobs, and today's announcement signals that our work has been successful," Boucher said.
