Data centres have been
located on ships for many years. As an example, the
Nimitz Class Aircraft Carriers have three data centres onboard, hooked up by

This is a proven tried and tested concept at sea.
By comparison our DataShip is being planned to be moored inshore, on a jetty, berth or on a quayside in a port. One of the major benefits of the DataShip is that it can be built offsite and floated into position speeding up the process of delivery. It can also be built in more competitively priced places and relocated anywhere in the world.
The DataShip is an
EnviroShip with reduced power generation equipment with the capability to enable the storage of
data containers to be located in cell guides at the forward end of the
The DataShip can bring
the following benefits:
Utilises the waste
energy from power production
