Fremont Technology Park is Ready for Business!
23 Apr 2012
The Fremont Technology Park is an 80-acre shovel-ready site that is owned by the City of Fremont. The city has done a considerable amount of infrastructure development to make the site ideal for a technology related business or data center. The site is an excellent central location just 20 minutes from Omaha, Nebraska and 35 minutes from the Omaha Eppley Airfield.
Fremont has a strong, well educated workforce. Metropolitan Community College in Fremont offers a data center management degree program that trains students on various aspects of data center design and management and has a hands-on working data center lab for real world training for its students. The college offers the first of its kind two year degree program in green data center management in partnership with IBM.
The City of Fremont offers competitive local incentives, and the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, through the Nebraska Advantage Program, has some of the most aggressive tax incentives in the nation. The site is served by a ring fed redundant and reliable 69kV transmission line for power that is owned and operated by the City of Fremont with some of the lowest cost per kWh in the nation. The electrical system has been rated as excellent by local industries due to its reliability and service.
The site has access to a minimum of four telecom fiber carriers with ring fed redundant fiber entrances into the site. All four carriers are capable of providing up to 10 Gbps of bandwidth to the site. Two of the carriers can support multiple 10 Gbps circuits to the site.
Fremont, with its 26,397 residents, maintains a small town feel yet offers immediate access to the cultural and entertainment amenities of a large metro area. Strategically located at the crossroads of major highway links, residents are able to reach west Omaha in just 20 minutes and the downtown areas of Lincoln and Omaha in less than an hour.
