On December 30, 2019, Hefei Zhonghai data station, the first data center station in Anhui Province, was officially put into operation. The station integrates urban power supply and data service functions, and will play a positive role in promoting the pilot project of “ubiquitous power Internet of things” and the construction of smart city in Hefei.
Zhonghai data station is located in Binhu New District, Hefei city. Under the premise of not changing the original role, the station has been upgraded to provide equipment services such as cabinets, servers and cloud platforms for communication operators and Internet enterprises, and further promote industrial development by using Internet and big data technology. It is reported that in 2020, Hefei power supply company plans to upgrade 10 more switching stations in Binhu “ubiquitous power Internet of things” demonstration area to a “multi station integration” project integrating data center, 5g base station and photovoltaic, charging, energy storage and other functions, so as to comprehensively build a low-cost, high-efficiency, multi type and new technology energy service complex.
Since 2019, Hefei power supply company has accelerated the pilot construction of “ubiquitous power Internet of things”, and 25 ubiquitous network construction tasks have been completed in succession. From 2020, Hefei power supply company plans to expand the area of 100 square kilometers from the “ubiquitous power Internet of things” demonstration area to Binhu New Area, so as to realize the leap from “good use of electricity” to “good use of energy”.
