Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Former U.S. Steel site, Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania company hopes brownfield becomes data center gold
‘Advanced’ data center looks to fill market void

Keystone NAP, a nascent co-location and managed IT services provider, has announced plans for what it calls the "first advanced data center" in the Northeastern US region. The year-old company is led by seasoned tech executive Peter B. Ritz, and expects the 180,000-sq ft data center to begin functional operation by early 2015.

Located on the former US Steel site in Fairless Hills, Pennsylvania, in close proximity to the Delaware River, Keystone NAP is banking on its location and access to steady power supplies as being an attraction to potential customers. The re-purposed industrial site has an onsite power plant, in addition to five other power feeds, including facilities operated by PECO, PSE&G, and Exelon.


Tax incentives are another added benefit of the former US Steel site. Now a part of the Keystone Industrial Port Complex, companies like Keystone NAP who locate to the site - much of which has undergone remediation efforts for contamination by the Environmental Protection Agency - can benefit from up to 14 years of tax exemptions.
